Corporate renewable energy PPA deal tracker

Energetics is tracking the progress of corporate renewable power purchase agreements across Australia, looking at both the size of the capacity being developed and the States that are leading the way. These deals involve some of Australia’s largest energy users and sustainability advocates who are pursuing clean energy via long term supply agreements. We will update our tracker regularly.

Since 2016 corporate PPAs have supported projects with a combined capacity of nearly 3200MW, of which about 2750MW enabled investment in new projects; more than a third of the required 6400 MW required by the end of 2018 under Australia's Renewable Energy Target.

As at 14 November 2018, approximately 54% of the project capacity supported by corporate PPAs is solar, and the remainder wind. Victorian projects continue to dominate, accounting for 44% of project capacity (about 1400MW) supported by corporate PPAs.
