Corporate Renewables 2020 | Kisaco Research

The leading digital summit to de-risking PPAs to achieve sustainable, long-term energy contacts

Sign up for updates
VIRTUAL SUMMIT | BST Timezone
14-16 July, 2020

Corporate Renewables 2020 is not a conference or a summit. The event delivers a series of curated networking experiences designed to help you to assess the economic viability of corporate renewable PPAs, learn about innovative deal structures and understand how they can be applicable to your company.

Why Attend

Shareholders, employees, customers and a wide range of stakeholders require corporates to show a tangible, impactful commitment to renewable energy. As global energy usage and needs are re-defined by these groups, corporates are increasingly focused on reducing their environmental footprint and securing lower energy costs.  Corporate PPAs enable companies to achieve their carbon emission reduction goals and are gaining momentum globally.

What’s on everybody’s mind now is the impact of Covid-19 on power prices and on existing and future contracts. What is happening with corporate green agendas and demand, what state bail-out/support packages are available in Europe and how are buyers, generators and investors responding?

This brings us to launch Corporate renewables 2020 Virtual Summit. 

The size and frequency of deals have increased quickly in recent years to more complex and innovative buyer consortia, VFA and proxy swap agreements. However, in Europe the business model for PPAs is yet to reach its potential. The total volume of corporate renewable PPAs signed in Europe in 2018 amassed to 1.9 GW while in the States it reached 8.5 GW.

You’ll delve deep into European inter-connectedness and regulation, risk mitigation and creating strong partnerships between the procurer and generator. You’ll also analyse emerging contracts and the financial and operational benefits they offer corporates. The collegial discussion promotes transparent free flowing discussions in an informal setting and under strict Chatham House Rules.

Become a Sponsor

Kisaco Research provides the much-needed platform on which industry executives can network, connect and learn from each other as well as meet potential industry partners.

Far from the typical ‘meet-and-greet’ exhibition experience, you – as a sponsor or exhibitor – will be positioned as a partner of the event with a focus on the benefits of your product and brand, rather than just a name on an exhibition list.

With our extensive marketing experience and strategy, your partnership with Kisaco Research will grant you a sponsorship package that is an extension and enhancement of your current marketing and branding efforts. We value your ROI and will work with you directly on your specific goals and targets – that’s why we take special care in finding the most relevant end-users to attend, so that your financial and resource investment is smartly allocated.
