Seagreen project latest to use renewable PPAs as companies try to meet climate targets

SSE will launch tenders offering corporate customers power from their Seagreen offshore wind project for five-year terms, around half the length of most renewable power purchase agreements.

Renewable power purchase agreements (PPAs) are an increasingly common way for large companies to secure clean energy and meet their climate targets, but typically have durations of 10 years or more.

“We are innovating the offshore corporate PPA model to help energy-intensive businesses to hit net-zero targets with ease and speed,” said Damien McSweeney, finance director for Seagreen Wind Energy.

Once fully operational in 2023 the 3 billion pound Seagreen project will be able to generate enough electricity to power around 1.6 million homes.
