Understanding Power Purchase Agreements Power Africa

Understanding Power Purchase Agreements is the first book in a series developed in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Commerce`s Trade Law Development Program (CLDP) and the African Development Bank`s African Legal Support Facility (ALSF). The book aims to help Power Africa`s partners master the vast and often confusing world of financing opportunities for the development of energy projects.

Great to see @CommerceGov Mohamed Badissy, co-author of the @PowerAfricaUS Understanding Natural Gas and LNG Options Handbook who discusses gas to electricity in #GTP18! For all of our handbooks: t.co/F0ZlbKxUag t.co/EHHLAA92Vd Power Africa looks forward to continuing to engage the power-project community on ways to streamline the AAE negotiation process and broaden consensus on how best to structure these complex agreements. The CLDP and ALSF continue to work together to support this mission, both by improving access to the AAE manual (currently translated into French) and by creating additional reference manuals on other complex legal issues (e.g. B, credit improvement and fuel/steam supply agreements). The hope is that, with a better understanding of what a successful AAE is, we will be able to work faster towards the goal of getting electricity to millions of sub-Saharan Africans in the years to come. This four-day workshop will give you clear explanations on the new risk allocation models for AAEs, the design and management of competitive electricity markets, the attraction of private investment in renewable energy through a series of real examples of contracts and markets. Case studies will contain real-life examples from Asia, the Middle East, Australia, Africa, Europe and North America. In addition, the cases stimulate independent reflection and discussion among participants. This manual aims to outline the principles of a successful transfer of energy projects in order to accelerate critical planning in the African electricity market. Understanding Power Project Financing is the second book in a series developed in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Commerce`s Trade Law Development Program (CLDP), and the African Development Bank`s African African African Legal Support Facility (ALSF) has once again assembled a group of world-class experts to design the Second-Handbook in the Power Africas Understanding Power Project Financing series.

This new manual aims to give decision-makers an overview of the structuring of private investment and financing of energy projects, as well as an overview of the important supporting role of governments. The Project Financing Manual was developed using the same Book Sprint method as the first Power Africa manual, which allowed our many contributors from African governments, development banks, private banks and large international law firms, all of whom contributed pro-bono time, to complete the manual in just five days. Version 1.1 of the manual is available in PDF and EPUB format. The French version of the manual is available in pdf here. The manual is published under the Creative Commons license. There are many moving parts that influence the future of electricity generation in emerging countries. Unlike today`s independent power project models, which included standardized paid contracts, today`s market requires more innovative incentives to ensure better availability, better performance and more attractive and sustainable fuel source blends.
