PPA 2.0 - Energy Yield Insurance

Energy Yield Insurance agreements allow for producers to be protected from the risks related to wind volatility, power curve deficiencies in renewable energy assets, and electrical losses which may occur at the grid connection point of a renewable energy asset.

Sellers of renewable energy face alternative risks compared to traditional, fuel-based energy producers. Even through intense study, research, planning and engineering, a producer cannot control the volume of e.g. a wind farm or solar farm. The uncertainty if the renewable energy resource is available in time places risks to the economic viability of the renewable energy asset itself, especially in the context of sales contracts like e.g. Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs).

Since Energy Yield Insurance agreements can significantly reduce the shape risk for sellers, they are fostering the availability of baseload PPAs in future PPA markets. Those can be called PPA 2.0 which have a strong potential to accelerate the energy transition. Even during volatile market situations.

Sellers of renewable energy are frequently exposed to fluctuating energy outputs. This volume risk materializes especially in case of baseload contracts since sellers are obliged to buy certain amounts of energy on secondary markets in case of underproduction of the renewable energy asset. Beside technical issues of the asset itself, production deficits mainly occurs if the renewable energy source is not available which means in simple words if the wind is not blowing, or the sun is not shining.

To control this risk, weather hedge solutions offered on our platform RE WAVE enable sellers to close baseload power purchase agreements, realize higher sales prices by reducing the risk structure of the entire renewable energy asset simultaneously.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

BENEFITS 
FOR SELLERS

Depending on the specific type of the power purchase agreement,
a PPA 2.0 as a weather hedge solution
can provide benefits in two ways:
For assets under development, weather hedges may reduce the liquidity risk by reducing the volume and shape risk. Moreover, these hedges also increase the bankability of the renewable energy project and enable the asset owner to realize better financial leverages
For assets under operation, weather hedges improve the risk and return profile of the asset since historical production data is available. This may reduce the required amount of insurance premium due to a higher validity of underlying production data
