PPAFlow

PPAFlow - Power Purchase Agreement Automation Software

The use of PPAs in the electricity industry is widespread and on the rise

  • Renewable generation is increasing
  • Assets are often operated under complex trading agreements such as Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs)
  • PPAs can be complex, with whole-of-meter settlements and difficult financial calculations
  • Market Participants can often have numerous differing PPAs with multiple independent asset owners
  • Usually managed by spreadsheets, resulting in copy / paste errors and audit, compliance and traceability issues

Current systems do not solve the challenge of calculating and settling PPAs

  • Standard ETRMs are good for standard contracts
  • But ETRMs are poor for non-standard contracts such as PPAs with highly flexible settlement rules
  • Microsoft Excel provides a flexible solution
  • But Excel Lacks auditability, repeatability, is hard to automate and is prone to errors

PPAFlow, built on the EnergyFlow Energy RPA tool systemizes and reliably automates the PPAs in your portfolio.

Whether you have one, several or hundreds of PPAs, PPAFlow can be easily configured by a user without the need for software developers.

PPAFlow can be installed on premise or is available as a secure hosted solution from Dunstan Thomas.
