This project intends to investigate the legislative and market framework for PPAs in different EU Member States to identify best practices for the diffusion of PPAs and to contribute to the EU debate on climate policies.
The recent REPowerEU Plan of the European Commission considers Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) a key driver to achieve the new 2030 target of 45% share of renewable energy. According to the European Commission, such target is essential to ensure the timely and effective achievement of carbon neutrality in 2050. However, the diffusion of PPAs is facing several challenges across EU Member States due to both market and legislative barriers, which are intrinsic to the long-term nature of PPAs. The project intends to investigate the legislative and market framework for PPAs in different EU Member States (a preliminary and not conclusive list of countries might include Italy, Hungary, Germany, Spain, and Portugal) to identify best practices for the diffusion of PPAs and to contribute to the EU debate on climate policies.
The theme of PPAs communities addresses issues common to the liberal political and ideological area many issues dear to the liberal area, from combating legislative and market barriers through a transnational and supra-national perspective to ecological challenges and economic savings.
