Analysis of the Week: Industrial off-takers lead corporate PPA activity in H1 2023, mirroring last year's trend

updated on 14 September 2023

Industrial growth drives demand in Europe, Asia and LatAm, while North America remains tech-dominated.

Cost concerns, and sustainability mandates boost PPA activity in industrial sector: India, Chile and Germany led the activity, accounting for ~55% of industrial off-take. Companies from energy-intensive metal and chemical industries are taking advantage of recent fall in power prices to lock in long-term PPAs to hedge against future volatilities.

North America fuels ~60% of PPA activity in the global tech sector: Energy-intensive data centers and expansion plans by tech giants such as Amazon, Meta and google are spurring demand for clean power in the US. Activity will continue to rise, driven by ambitious climate pledges and emissions targets.
