Take the next step to net zero
Seagreen’s corporate power purchase agreement (cPPA) is the next step to net zero for your business. Register your interest below.
What is a cPPA?
A corporate power purchase agreement (cPPA) is an energy contract between an organisation and a generator of renewable power.
Under the terms of the contract, the organisation agrees to buy some or all of its electricity directly from a renewable energy generator, such as a solar or wind farm. This approach differs from the traditional arrangement in which the organisation would simply buy electricity from licensed electricity suppliers.

A Seagreen cPPA offers large companies an innovative, quick and flexible way to achieve 100% renewable energy supply within a year, in the form of one easy, green energy purchase. Around five to 10 large, energy-intensive businesses will be able to purchase energy in blocks of 20MW (100GWh p.a.) as part of the Seagreen cPPA.
This arrangement overcomes the chief barrier to buying renewable energy directly: the excessively long contract duration, which creates undue risk for businesses in the event of falling energy prices. Seagreen’s five-year contract is less than half the length of a typical cPPA, giving corporates price certainty and access to zero-carbon energy without a lengthy lock-in.
Organisations are coming under increasing scrutiny from key stakeholder groups regarding their environmental sustainability credentials. A Seagreen PPA will help large, energy-intensive companies meet their decarbonisation goals and ESG commitments by next year, with one green energy contract. Large corporations buying renewable energy directly via a Seagreen cPPA will bolster their green credentials with their employees, customers and other stakeholders.
Tenders for Seagreen’s offshore cPPAs will be released later this year, after the Summer. Register your interest below to be notified.
