Embarking on a PPA journey can be daunting, but the truth is, a good PPA can not only solve many sustainability challenges faced by the industry, but also provide long-term financial benefits.

Join us as we hear from two prominent leaders, Borealis and Statkraft Germany, about the key benefits, considerations, and potential pitfalls of the PPA process.

In this session, we will explore lessons learned from other sectors using Power Purchase Agreements to decarbonize their portfolio and discuss how PPAs can be applied to industrial manufacturing most advantageously.

Attend this webinar to unpack questions, including:

  • What do you see as the primary PPA market developments recently?
  • What steps are best to take before going to market for a PPA?
  • What are the biggest political drivers or barriers for corporate PPAs (e.g., financial guarantees or firming costs)?
  • And more!
