Key Drivers and Restraints of Power Purchase Agreement Market

  • Long term price security is the major driver of the global power purchase agreement market. Traditionally, the price of electricity has been dependent on the market variability. Power purchase agreement protects consumers from this variability and provides steady power supply with consistent price for an agreed period. The agreement helps companies save up to 25% to 30% on electricity bills. Thus, long term price security is a major factor driving the power purchase agreement market.
  • Supportive policies enacted by governments of various countries is another key driver of the power purchase agreement market. Governments across the globe are promoting power purchase agreements by providing tax credits and carbon credit. Led by an increase in environmental awareness, companies are actively entering into power purchase agreements. This is anticipated to drive the global power purchase agreement market during the forecast period.
  • Companies do not own the power station system. These systems are owned and installed by developers. This is one of the key restraints of the global market. Companies do not have any control over the power station. As a result, companies sometime hesitate to proceed with power purchase agreement. Hence, lack of ownership of the power plant system is the key restraining factor of the power purchase agreement market.
