In the face of the rising demand for renewables and the volatility of energy prices, Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) are the key driver of the energy transition. PPAs provide a way for generators to finance their projects and for buyers to get price and quantity certainty over a defined period of time.


Based on Dr. Guy Block’s 35 years of experience in energy projects, this book provides:
I.    An analysis of legal and bankability risks typically found in the development of renewable power projects;
II.   An analysis of the protection of PPAs as an investment under the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) jurisdictions;
III.    A worldwide review of PPAs standard clauses in Europe, Africa, America and Asia.  



Constituting an essential resource for anyone involved in the negotiation or drafting of PPAs, this book is intended for all practitioners, project developers and promoters, engineers, investment and private banks and public authorities involved in the development of renewable energy projects.
