edie Explains: Corporate Power Purchase Agreements

Last updated: 31st January 2022

What is a Corporate Power Purchase Agreement (CPPA)? Why choose CPPAs? What are the business benefits of CPPAs? How to undertake a CPPA – key considerations for business How is the CPPA market developing?

This new edie Explains guide, developed in assistance with EDF, answers all of these questions and more, providing the definitive, need-to-know guide on CPPAs.

Broadly speaking, there are two PPA models: the traditional ‘utility PPA’ – where the energy buyer is a utility company; and ‘corporate’ or ‘end-user’ PPAs – where the end user is a business that is purchasing energy directly from a generator as opposed to purchasing it from a licensed supplier.

For the purpose of this guide, we will be focusing exclusively on the ‘corporate’ PPA model, referred to throughout the document as a ‘CPPA’.
