Corporate Power Purchase Agreements

A Corporate Power Purchase Agreement (CPPA) is a long-term contract under which a business agrees to purchase electricity directly from an energy generator.

Up until last year it was only the larger multinationals in Ireland like Amazon, Microsoft and Google signing Corporate Power Purchase Agreements (CPPAs). Flogas Enterprise are now changing this, we have already signed over 10 CPPAs with our customers in the first six months of 2023.

With record high energy prices and net zero carbon deadlines, now is a good time to invest in renewable energy projects.

Why Choose a CPPA?

Conscientious businesses are now looking for more tangible ways to demonstrate their commitment to drive their renewable agenda, one of their options is to enter into a CPPA. We are making CPPAs accessible to large energy users in Ireland, by offering CPPA integration with normal electricity supply, along with all the support and education to make it happen. We have the expertise and a proven track record with CPPAs.

At Flogas Enterprise, we have developed a fresh simple 6-step approach to achieving energy sustainability, it’s called Carbon Kaizen and is our way of helping your business take continuous steps towards energy sustainability. Signing up to a CPPA is step 5 of Carbon Kaizen.

Corporate Power Purchase Agreements have many business and environmental benefits.

  • Green Energy Supply

  • Supports Net Zero ambitions

  • Additionality
  • Fully traceable energy from chosen renewable facility

  • Long-term, locally supplied energy hedge

“We are functioning in a time when large energy users have limited hedging options. In a volatile energy market, having a fixed price for the supply of electricity through a CPPA is not only good for the environment, but it is also great for budgeting. This solution was hedged at a price that is reflective of current market price level, but delivers budget certainty and sustainability benefits.”

Not only does the deal provide our business with significant cost benefits through direct access to wholesale energy prices, but we are partnering with a company that has demonstrated a deep understanding and expertise of Ireland’s energy market.”
