The benefits of an Ørsted PPA


An Ørsted PPA has many benefits for your business, both financial and environmental

Reduce your carbon footprint


Reduce your carbon footprint

More and more companies around the world are committing to sourcing their electricity from renewable sources. A PPA is one way to achieve this. Energy use from fossil fuels is responsible for 75 % of global carbon emissions, so by switching your long-term power supply to renewables from Ørsted, you’re sending a clear signal that you support our vision of a world that runs entirely on green energy.

Be compliant and increase your sustainability profile

Sustainability is increasingly something that customers, shareholders, employees, and supply chain partners expect of a business. There are also high reporting and compliance standards from schemes like the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), RE100 and the UN Global Compact, which hundreds of the world’s leading businesses have signed up to.

A corporate PPA enables a corporation to claim that all or part of their energy supply is guaranteed to be covered by an equivalent power production from a renewable energy asset, for example a wind or a solar farm.

Recognition for meeting renewable electricity targets can also enhance an organisation’s reputation and brand leadership and meet their public sustainability goals.

Enter an agreement with an experienced partner

Ørsted is one of the world’s leading renewable energy companies, and world leader in offshore wind and has been ranked the world’s most sustainable energy company in the Corporate Knights Global 100 Index three years running.

We built both the world’s first and the world’s largest offshore wind farms, and bring decades of experience building, owning and operating wind farms around the world.

We’ve provided PPAs to some leading customers including Amazon, Danfoss, Covestro, Nestle and more, including the world's largest ever renewable PPA with TSMC. By entering a PPA with Ørsted, you’ll be engaging with experts from the initial dialogue, and throughout the entire co-operation.

Scale and flexibility

By 2030, we aim to reach 50 GW of installed capacity across renewable technologies and geographies. This means that we can tailor PPAs for a wide range of business types across a broad geographical area, whether from existing assets or new ones seeking investment.


Budget with confidence

Typically, a PPA has a duration of 10-20 years, offering long-term budget certainty that can’t be achieved by purchasing certificates that aren’t attached to a PPA. A corporate PPA protects your business from energy price changes in a volatile marketplace by fixing energy prices throughout the agreement.

Why a green offshore wind Corporate PPA?


Not all green CPPAs are equal. Our offshore wind CPPA is a unique opportunity to source 100% renewable electricity directly from one of our wind farms – not just a certificate. You’ll be making a positive step to show that you support the green transformation, while protecting your long-term energy costs.

Advancements in offshore wind mean it provides more consistent baseload power – making it more reliable than other renewable technologies. Our wind farms are situated far offshore where the wind blows strongly and reliably – delivering around 4,500 full-load hours per year.

Be more green

Reduce your carbon footprint in a true and meaningful way, playing an active role in transforming the energy sector. Sustainability is more important than ever to customers, supply chain and stakeholders – we can help you make a difference. As the world’s most sustainable energy company, we’d like to share our experiences and further your business’ contribution.

How do green corporate PPA's work?

A green Corporate power purchase agreement (cPPA) is a long-term contract directly between your company and an offshore wind farm. You source all or part of your electricity directly from a specific renewable generation asset at a fixed price. PPAs help stabilise energy costs and enables businesses to send a signal to show that they contribute towards limiting climate change.
