Our Corporate PPA Training ‘Bootcamps’

Energy Buyer Training

Our Buyers Bootcamp is Australia’s peak Corporate PPA training and involves scenario-based learning with Australian companies that have executed or are in the process of executing PPAs.

Delivered 2-3 times each year, participants learn from our Buyers Faculty – experienced people from buyer organisations in a wide range of sectors with in-depth PPA knowledge. Our Buyers Faculty provide real-world takeaways, and this course will allow you to ask those questions you haven’t yet asked in an open environment and build relationships with people in similar roles.

This course is suitable for energy buyers in corporate, government and other organisations, including:

  • Procurement/Category managers.
  • Sustainability managers.
  • Accounting/Finance managers and CFO’s.
  • Contracts/Legal managers.
  • Strategic marketing and communications managers.

Training is provided in three modules, delivered across one-and-a-half-days, and caters for both Wholesale and Retail PPA learning streams.

Energy & Service Provider Training

Our Energy Provider and Service Provider Training provides a unique opportunity to gain insights from companies experienced in procuring renewable energy. This training features energy buyers and service providers sharing their experiences – the challenges, what worked and what didn’t, and the levers they used to make the deal happen.

These sessions are aimed at helping the supply-side of the equation to better understand what the demand side is seeking in a renewable energy partner. We address topics that often represent a challenge to either side, such as how to respond to specific tender requirements and social and environmental co-benefits, demonstrating alignment with the proponent’s values and a wide range of other topics.

These courses are suitable for project developers, energy consultants, legal consultants and engineering consultants operating in Australia.

We will soon be programming dates for these events for 2023, so watch this space!

Returning in 2023 and attracting around 250 registrations per webinar, this regular series is an opportunity to learn form industry experts and ask your questions about challenging topics such as Storage and 24/7 PPAs, LGC price forecasts, Electricity prices & when is best to contract, Transparency & certainty, Stakeholder engagement, Supply chain, the Post-2030 landscape and many others. They are also a great opportunity to showcase your knowledge in your area of expertise and experience.

We are proud to partner with the RE100 Australia initiative to deliver regular Energy Insights Webinars co-hosted by our two initiatives – to hear form companies that have made the 100% renewable commitment and how they plan to achieve it.
