Corporate PPA

100% renewable is becoming more and more the standard for industrial customers. We offer both on-site and off-site PPA solutions in the field of green electricity procurement for major customers, depending on their needs.

On-site solutions

Advantages of on-site solutions:
  • Procurement of renewable energy and reduction of the CO2 footprint through lower emissions.
  • Enhance your brand through its alignment as a sustainable industrial company.
  • Good plant visibility because it is on-site.
  • Risk management against volatile and/or rising electricity prices without prior capital requirement.
  • Benefit from either a lower electricity price or a return on investment as there are no grid costs. On-site PPAs are an ideal complement to off-site PPA procurement models.

For customers with free market access (consumption >100 MWh), Axpo can offer the following three options:

Own consumption solution: Electricity for own consumption, customer invests in system

The customer obtains the electricity generated from the renewable plant himself. Although the customer has to finance the plant, he saves electricity and grid costs in comparison to buying electricity from the supplier. Any surplus production and residual purchases are accepted or delivered by Axpo.

Leasing solution: Electricity for own consumption, Axpo/third party invests in plant

The customer obtains the electricity generated from the renewable plant himself and does not have to finance the plant, because Axpo or a third party takes over. Instead, he pays a regular leasing fee, but saves on electricity and grid costs in comparison to buying electricity from the supplier. At the end of the leasing contract, the plant is transferred to the customer. Any surplus production and residual purchases are accepted or delivered by Axpo.

Corporate PPA solution: Electricity for own consumption, Axpo/third party invests in plant

The customer purchases the electricity generated from the renewable plant himself and does not have to finance the plant, because Axpo or a third party invests in the plant. Instead, the customer pays a fixed long-term PPA price for the electricity, thus saving electricity and grid costs compared to purchasing electricity from the supplier. The plant remains in the possession of the investor. Any surplus production and residual purchases are accepted or delivered by Axpo.

Off-site Solutions

Advantages of off-site solutions:
  • Procurement of renewable energy and reduction of the CO2 footprint through lower emissions.
  • Enhance your brand through its alignment as a sustainable industrial company.
  • Risk management against volatile and/or rising electricity prices without prior capital requirement.
  • Procurement from any location, use of projects in more profitable regions (such as wind power from Nordic countries, PV from Southern Europe or Swiss hydropower).

For customers with free market access (consumption >100 MWh), Axpo can offer the following two options:

Off-site physical corporate PPA

In a physical PPA, the electricity is fed into the Swiss or European grid. Axpo physically supplies the customer with the corresponding quantities at the respective PPA price.

Off-site virtual corporate PPA

In a virtual PPA, also known as a financial PPA, the customer and Axpo agree a PPA price. In addition, the customer has a physical supply contract with a supplier of his choice. At the end of each month, Axpo and the customer each settle the difference between the agreed PPA price and the spot market price (Contract for Differences CfD).
