The Global Market for Corporate, Utility-scale Offsite Renewable Energy Procurement is Expected to Reach $15.6 Billion by 2027

A new report from Navigant
Research examines the global market for corporate buyers’
procurement of renewable energy from utility-scale, offsite renewable
energy (ORE) projects through 2027.

To reduce greenhouse gas emissions, many large multinational
corporations, universities, and municipalities, referred to as corporate
buyers, are going beyond installing onsite renewable energy systems and
engaging in innovative transaction models to procure renewable energy
from utility-scale offsite renewable energy (ORE) projects. These models
can help corporate buyers meet sustainability and energy spend reduction
goals while reducing power market risks for project developers and
independent power producers (IPPs). Click
to tweet: According to a new report from @NavigantRSRCH,
the global market for corporate, utility-scale ORE procurement is
expected to reach $15.6 billion by 2027.

“Renewable energy project developers and IPPs are increasingly required
to compete with traditional electricity generation sources, and the
resulting uncertainties in long-term income streams will affect the
bankability of renewable energy projects,” said William Tokash, senior
research analyst with Navigant. “These new renewable energy transaction
models will not only help corporate buyers meet their sustainability and
energy spend reduction goals, but over time will help mitigate project
bankability risks for project developers and IPPs.”

Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest region for utility-scale ORE
procurement, where annual power capacity and revenue are forecast to
reach 9.2 GW and $7.9 billion by 2027. The second largest region is
projected to be North America, which is expected to reach 2.7 GW and
$3.1 billion in 2027. The anticipated growth of these markets is
dependent on the emergence of flexible contracting mechanisms that allow
for the creditworthy benefits of a corporate buyer to be recognized by
project developers and IPPs.

This Navigant Research report, Corporate
Utility-Scale Offsite Renewable Energy Procurement Solutions,
analyzes the global market for corporate utility-scale ORE procurement
solutions. The study examines the key drivers, barriers, and transaction
models related to corporate buyers’ procurement of renewable energy from
utility-scale ORE projects. Four transaction models are covered: virtual
(physical) power purchase agreements (PPAs), virtual (financial) PPAs
(also known as contracts for difference, or CFDs), green direct access
tariffs, and community renewables. Global market forecasts for power
capacity and revenue, segmented by generation type (solar PV and wind),
transaction model, and region, extend through 2027. The report also
examines the regional market landscapes, future market developments, and
trends for the procurement of renewable energy from utility-scale ORE by
corporate buyers.
