Electricity purchase contract (AAE) for small rural energy projects as part of a series of documents developed by international law firms for use in small rural energy projects. Documents prepared for the country in Southeast Asia. Electricity producers enter into AAEs either bilaterally with a consumer company (“Corporate PPA”) or with an electricity distributor who purchases the electricity generated (“Merchant PPA”). The electricity distributor can continue to supply electricity to an electricity consumer (transform it again into a “corporate PPA”) or to negotiate electricity on an electricity exchange. Many international groups are already buying shares in their electricity consumption via AAAs or have announced their intention to do so more frequently (see there100.org/re100). They use AAEs to obtain stable and predictable electricity prices. AAEs are an effective way to reduce the risk of electricity prices, particularly for operators of high-investment and low-cost facilities (such as photovoltaic and wind power plants). Since electricity payments are already insured to some extent, facility managers and financial banks may be more confident that revenues from the sale of electricity will effectively cover investment costs. This makes the project more cost-effective in the long run. An electricity purchase agreement (AAE) is a contractual agreement between energy buyers and sellers. They meet and agree to buy and sell an amount of energy generated or generated by a renewable asset.
AAEs are generally signed for a long-term period of between 10 and 20 years. AAEs are often seen as a central document in the development of independent power generation units (power plants). Because it defines the revenue conditions for the project and the quality of the credit, it is essential for obtaining project financing without recourse. Electricity prices can vary widely and often. The main feature of an electricity purchase agreement is the agreement to sell X amount of MWh from a renewable energy project to a fixed-price energy buyer. This relates to the difference between what was planned (usually a day before) and actual production (the cost of imbalance). This risk can be reduced by correcting the costs of imbalance through an agreement or intraday trade, if available.
