Come visit us at the 30th Wind Energy Days

October 17, 2022

The 30th Wind Energy Days (30. Windenergietage), also known as the Spreewind Event, takes place from November 8 to 10, 2022, in Linstow, Germany. This event is an important industry meeting point for onshore wind energy. Our Think RE team will be on-site, as exhibitors, with our own booth. Find us at booth 49, situated between the Eventshop and Forum 12.

On top of that, this year we're organizing our own panel where we'll discuss "the role of PPAs in times of energy crisis." Our panel discussion takes place at forum 11 on November 8, 17:00. External partners speaking at our event will be speakers will be Dr. Gabriele Haas (Dentons) & Chris Voet (SolarEdge).

In our Think RE panel, we will first look at the situation in the electricity market. We're focussing on municipal utilities and energy supply companies that are under liquidity pressure, and on high energy costs and pressure on industrial end-consumers. We will then elaborate on the importance of on-site PPAs and off-site PPAs as a combined hedging solution for managing commodity price risk for buyers and broadening the sales channel for renewable energy asset owners. Solaredge will discuss in detail the potential of on-site PPA solutions in this context and complex technological solutions like e.g. storage. For off-site PPAs, we will discuss several PPA solutions like Virtual PPAs as they are accessible even in case of increasing unavailability of balancing responsible parties. Dentons will discuss selected contractual parameters of PPAs from a legal point of view. e.g. which typical contract clauses have to be considered in such contracts, especially for contributing to proper risk management. Also, the impact of regulatory interventions will be discussed (e.g. price caps of 180 EUR/MWh).
