EMERGING ENERGY OPTIONS WORKSHOP.05.08.2017 Edmonton

Strategic Procurement, Demand Response, Distributed Energy Resources

Here's The Deal

Corporate Power Purchase Agreements (PPA)s made up the majority of new wind energy PPAs signed in the U.S. in 2015. Companies such as Google, Amazon, and General Motors have realized significant economic and environmental benefits of partnering with renewable energy developers to bring new projects into the markets in which they operate.  So what about Canada?  This event will explore critical elements of the Corporate PPA and will identify mutually beneficial opportunities for Canadian Clean Energy Developers, Canadian Corporations, and Canadian Utilities.

Who Should Attend?

DEVELOPERS

Will a Corporate PPA mitigate financial risk as your original PPA ends?  Is it the best route for new developments?

CORPORATIONS
