Power purchase agreements

Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) are also known as power supply and power offtake agreements. Statkraft is a leading provider of PPAs throughout Europe and offers you various contract models.

A power purchase agreement (PPA) is a contract between an energy seller and a buyer.

At Statkraft, we act as a catalyser in the market by taking on time, volume, price and credit risks both for developers and consumers. We reduce complexity and risk and thus facilitate impactful actions in the market.

The actual structure of the contract depends on market regulations as well as the needs and risk appetite of all parties involved and is defined together with our teams.

A generic overview of different types of PPAs is provided below:

PPAs for power producers: Plant operators, project developers and investors

PPAs for electricity consumers: companies, municipal utilities and energy suppliers

PPAs as power supply contracts have become synonymous with green power supply for industrial customers, municipal utilities and redistributors. In addition to enabling the purchase of green power, they are also a key instrument in the expansion of renewable energies.

  • different delivery models and contract durations
  • tailored pricing schemes to accommodate the customer's supply and hedging strategies​
  • with or without guarantees of origin
  • Statkraft can cover up to 100 per cent of the electricity consumption with renewable energy

Statkraft matches the needs of all parties


One of the challenges in the energy market is that owners of renewable plants and power consumers do not have the same needs. One wants uninterrupted supply, the other can only sell power when it is produced according to weather conditions.

To resolve this conflict, Statkraft meets the needs of both parties:


  • Offering predictability and security of supply to consumers thanks to a large portfolio of power plants combining water, solar and wind to ensure a steady supply.

  • Providing financial predictability and security for plant owners through the ability to generate stable, predictable revenues.
