Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

Structuring Successful Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), Managing Competitive Electricity Markets & Attracting Merchant Power Investments

18 – 21 September 2012
Johannesburg, South Africa


There are many moving pieces affecting the future of electric power development in Emerging Market. Unlike the past Independent Power Project models, which featured standardised take-or-pay contracts – today’s market demands more innovative incentives to ensure better availability, better performance, as well as more attractive and sustainable mixtures of fuel sources. Economies throughout Africa urgently need to master the key tools, models, and lessons learned for transforming and strengthening today’s electricity sector.

This 4-day comprehensive workshop gives you clear explanations of the new models of PPA risk allocation, of designing and managing competitive power markets, attracting private investments in renewable energy, through a series of real case examples of contracts and markets.
