Credit risk refers to the risk that the purchaser will not be able to meet its contractual payment obligations under the PPP contract. Do you know who your direct counterpart is and follow the credit developments of your business. 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. This risk is the probability that the market price will change negatively. It`s inevitable, but it can be mitigated. We take a future position of about the same size, but in the opposite direction of prices in a stock exchange. Synthetic AAEs decouple the physical flow of electricity from the financial flow. This will further increase the flexibility of contractual agreements. With respect to synthetic chaining contracts (also known as sPPAs), producers and consumers agree on a price per kilowatt-hour of electricity, as does a physical AAE. However, electricity is not delivered directly to the consumer from the power generation facility.
Instead, the producer`s energy service provider (for example. B an electricity distributor) takes the electricity generated in its clearing group and acts (in the short-term electricity markets, to cite an example). The consumer`s energy supplier (for example. B, a municipal plant) obtains exactly the power profile that the manufacturer makes available to its energy service provider on behalf of the PPA consumer partner, the purchase being made on a platform such as the spot market. In the synthetic AAE, this flow of electricity is now supplemented by what is called a differential contract. In this contract, the AAEs parties aim to compensate for the difference between the agreed price of AAEs and the actual spot market price. This means that each counterparty in the AEA has two cash flows: one with the energy service provider concerned and the other with the AAE contractor. In any event, the payments add up to the price of the AAEs set at the beginning and offer both parties the desired price guarantee.
Without direct physical delivery between the contracting parties (such as an AAE on site) and without a direct link between them (such as an off-site AAE), this is a simple and administratively economical AAE. It is well suited to cases where a producer does not create or does not wish to create its own balance sheet group, to cite an example. If this is not the case, we should consider a long-term contract setting out all the terms of the agreement. Electricity purchase contract (AAE) for a temporary, mobile or emergency short-term contract to purchase temporary, temporary or emergency electricity for the purchase of electricity from a mobile facility (on skates). Prepared by an international law firm for a small rural energy project in Africa, along with an implementation agreement. An AAE is a contractual agreement to buy a lot of energy at an agreed price, for a period of time, before the production of energy. The above AAEs must be distinguished from electricity purchase contracts in a deregulated electricity market, which are generally contracts to purchase electricity from a private generator where the plant already exists or when the plant is built at the initiative of the private generator.
