Trading advantage and intelligence

Renewable asset management and forecasting

Where pre-existing Corporate Power Purchase Agreement (CPPA) and Gas Purchase Agreements (GPA) contracts are being renewed (rather than negotiated afresh) – care should be taken to ensure that the mechanisms are still fit for purpose and provide the certainty and information flows required.

This can also be a good time to audit and carry out a general review of the contract to ensure that it remains suitable and to audit the arrangements for generation payments and correct payment of embedded benefits.
