Project Developer & IPPs

Renewable Projects in non-subsidized markets

What is our philosophy being a full-stack service provider?

Synchronizing all stakeholders is key to success

Known risks like fluctuating power prices or varying energy output will become even more dominant for renewable power projects in a non-subsidized market environment.

In this context, the interests of market participants are diverging. For example, debt-financing banks require long-term off-take solutions (e.g. PPAs), whereas the Off-taker is looking for short/mid-term tenors so far. Developers/IPPs seeking high PPA prices with moderate mark to market risk.

Our services have been defined to solve this multi-stakeholder problem by aligning all interests simultaneously.

Green Brain Academy® - Sustainability Workshops

icon education
Over the last two decades, renewables (e.g. wind and solar power plants) have been subsidized heavily. These subsidies have led to a strongly growing market share due to moderate commercial risks.
As the technologies become cheaper than conventional technologies, existing subsidies will be removed and face merchant risks.
The Green Brain Academy will help you to get familiar with contracts and instruments of this new environment of renewable energy markets.

Questions to be answered:

  • What is the impact on project financing of different PPA types?
  • How do I evaluate the project value in volatile power markets?
  • Will the shift to a liberalized market affect my projects?
  • What is the best off-take scenario for my project? Utility PPA vs. Corporate PPA vs. public auction?
  • How can I mitigate mark-to-market or weather risk?
  • What can I do to increase the gearing under a PPA project?
