Green PPAs: What does the EU Taxonomy Regulation mean for the business model?


Program

The EU Taxonomy Regulation will greatly change the financing conditions for power generation. It is expected to noticeably increase the demand for green power and renewable generation assets. As such, the Taxonomy Regulation may become an important driver for Green Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs).

During the event, it will be shown which requirements result from the Taxonomy Regulation and how it affects the financing and energy sectors as well as the industry. The presentations will make clear why and what effects can be expected for the Green PPA business model. Affected companies, also from the industry, will share their experiences on using Green PPAs to reduce energy-related emissions in order to meet the requirements from the Taxonomy Regulation.

The event is held in cooperation with Marktoffensive Erneuerbare Energien (Market Initiative Renewable Energies). The initiative is driven by the German Energy Agency (Deutsche Energie-Agentur (dena)), Deutscher Industrie- und Handelskammertag and the climate protection companies (Klimaschutz-Unternehmen e.V.) and unites already 40 member companies.

Please note: The session will be held in German only.
