Renewable electricity purchasing training for

Businesses & Councils in Queensland REZ regions

Would you like to help your organisation switch to renewable electricity?

Do you have questions about power purchase agreements (PPAs) or how your organisation can benefit from renewable energy development?

PPAs allow businesses and councils to partner with renewable energy generation projects, such as solar or wind farms, to purchase electricity for an agreed price and term. In this way, PPAs enable local businesses and councils to invest and share in the benefits of renewable energy generation.

If you’re a proactive leader and keen to learn from experts, come along to this workshop hosted by the Business Renewables Centre Australia.
