CPP April Webinar - Renewable Energy Power Purchase Agreement for Councils - Shared screen with speaker view
shold we be able to hear anything yet - not sure if my audio is working or not...
audio just started.
i cant hear anything either
yes audio is great
Can you please explain more what Fully FIrmed and Partially Firmed means.
Is there a cost for membership?
There seems to be a limitation on including either small sites or sites without inteval meters in PPAs. Any comments on this?
If Councils is seeking fully firmed retailer PPA with high renewable energy percentages, say 70% to 100%. Do we need to assume there is going to be a firming cost/premium – is it likely to be around the $25/MWh figure that is often quoted for grid firming of renewables?
To Jonathons point around market sounding, any experience by other Councils with this? My sense is local govt procurement is too restrictive to allow this senisible stage...
Is market sounding similar to an EOI or RFQ? I have been working on Solar PPA for Council for the last few months, and I am putting out a RFQ this week.
REgardless of how power supplied, how is renewable energy, RECs, carbon credits, etc all dealt with? Do these become extra "costs" for the purchaser or an "asset" that we can sell to the market?
Market sounding is different to EOI. Market sounding allows you to interact with prospective respondents to test what your particular requirements may be so that you can scope up your requirements in the EOI in a more robust way - it allows you to gain some market intelligence as to where the market might be at. Once you enter an EOI you cannot interact with any respondent apart from making clarifications to them.
Hi Nic, we can have a chat about the market sounding under local government processes. This was an issue for the SSROC process we went through last year.
Re: Nick's question. At SSROC there was quite a lot of time and resources involved in market sounding. So yes its possible, but its good to plan for it taking some effort.
Hi - I have to go but I have responded briefly to the market sounding exercise...it can be done by local govt but is outside of the procurement process
Thanks CPP and BRCA - much appreciated.
