Choose budget certainty
A fixed-price Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) lets you set an upfront price for each unit you export, giving you a guaranteed income stream in a volatile market. Simple to manage, standard fixed-price PPAs allow you to set a price for 6-36 months, and sometimes longer.
- Enjoy budget certainty - with a guaranteed energy price no matter how the market behaves
- Simple to manage – once you sign your contract, minimal input is required
- Single point of contact – your Account Manager will be on hand to offer any support you require
Or spread your risk
A flexible (PPA) provides greater control over the timing and volume of power you sell, allowing you to spread trading decisions over a longer period to secure a better average price. You’ll also be better positioned to take advantage of periods of increased demand.
With any of our flexible PPAs, you’ll receive full support from our award-winning Optimisation Desk, plus 24/7 access to our secure Risk Navigator portal for up-to-the-minute market intelligence and bespoke reports.
Flex PPAs: key features
- Direct access to the wholesale market
- A dedicated Client Portfolio Manager
- A choice of N2EX and LEBA market indices
- Unset functionality
- Market index defaults
- Residual volume covered by an Imbalance Risk Profile Fee

Additional flexible PPA options include:
- Flex Innovate PPA – all the benefits of a regular Flexible PPA but with added features and flexibility. For example, a choice of both the APX or N2EX indices to trade on, and no volume tolerance
- N2EX PPA – trade your volume on the N2EX day-ahead auction, delivering a daily average price for both base-load and peak-load. Benefit from a lower Imbalance Premium, no annual reconciliations and no volume tolerance restrictions for intermittent technologies like wind and solar
- System Sell Price (SSP) PPA – the option best suited to generation with sporadic output, or newly commissioned plant. With the usual forecasting requirement removed and no additional balance or volume-related fees, you have greater flexibility around the volume you generate, so you don’t incur any penalties for under or over generation
