The Renewable Energy Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) seminar is designed for those in the renewable energy industry who are new to PPAs or who have worked with PPAs and are ready to gain a deeper understanding of the legal impact of and allocation of risks under key PPA provisions. The course divides PPA issues into those that play out during the pre-commercial operation period, those related to the actual achievement of commercial operation, and those that arise in the post-commercial operation period. Key topics covered during the seminar include:

  • Review the basics of project finance, PPA contract terms, and the PPA bidding process
  • Assess sample PPA language
  • Discuss methods and practices for successful negotiations
  • Analyze issues that arise during operations and how to allocate legal risk
  • Discuss government incentives for solar PPAs and review utility-scale projects
  • Review other renewables such as biomass, biofuels and wind, and programs utilizing these technologies.
