Program Overview

The use of Power Purchase Agreements or PPA's is expanding rapidly all across the world in both industrialized and emerging markets. For a major part driven by the fast growth of renewables, but also for coal or gas fired plants in emerging economies. PPA's are complex contracts, so first of all a thorough understanding of the different aspects of a PPA is key.

In this PPA introduction program you will gain the knowledge about the essentials of the PPA that would give you the basic skills to understand what it is all about and be a good sparring partner to the experts. This program will teach you what is expected by the regulators, lenders, project sponsors, and off-takers to have a successful and bankable PPA.

The program consists of on demand videos and is divided in an introduction video and 18 video lessons dealing with different topics. You will be guided through the content in an inspiring, hands-on manner. It is designed so knowledge is built gradually. We therefore recommend that students follow the lessons in the suggested order. However, you may choose to enroll in any lesson of your choice based on your background knowledge or experience.

The program is designed by PPA expert Kasper Walet, who has many years of experience working with and teaching industry partners from all over the world.
