In accordance with a physical AAE, the purchaser of the company will receive a long-term AAE (usually lasting more than 10 to 15 years) with a renewable energy generator in order to take some or all of the energy generated by its facility (or asset portfolio) with a fixed price per MWh. An electricity purchase contract (AAE) or an electricity contract is a contract between two parties, one that produces electricity (the seller) and the other that wants to buy electricity (the buyer). The PPP sets out all the terms and conditions for the sale of electricity between the two parties, including when the project will begin operating commercially, electricity delivery schedule, delivery penalties, payment terms and termination. An AEA is the main agreement that defines the revenue and credit quality of a production project and is therefore a key instrument of project financing. There are many forms of PPA in Use Today and they vary according to the needs of the buyer, seller, and financing against the parties.   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.
