How Corporates are Going Green
The Rise of Renewable Corporate Power-Purchase Agreements
Far from witnessing “doom and gloom” around climate change, two leaders in renewable energy at KPMG are working with corporations around the world to transfer from “brown energy” to green. The shift is starting with Corporate Power Purchase Agreements (CPPAs) whereby massive consumers of energy contract with renewable suppliers for direct access to green energy. Not only are these agreements carbon-free, they are less expensive than the business as usual models. The interview also includes commentary on the challenges of structuring CPPAs, the institutional investors eager to finance them, and the broader corporate movement toward a carbon-neutral world.
