Podcast: Power purchase agreements with Luca Pedretti

Traditionally required by high-demand consumers such as data centres or metal industries, power purchase agreements, or PPAs are used to secure an energy price over an agreed timeframe.
But times are changing, and different types of businesses need PPAs. What does the market look like for these agreements in the future?

In this episode, Quentin is joined by Luca Pedretti, COO and Co-Founder of Pexapark. Over the course of the conversation, they discuss:

  • What is a power purchase agreement, how do they work and what purpose do they serve?
  • Pexapark’s vision and the problems they are helping to solve.
  • A look at emerging trends and changes happening to PPAs.
  • The rise in shorter contracts and how this will open up the capacity able to be traded through PPAs.
  • Luca’s contrarian views, from base load PPAs to shale gas.
