With the end of Feed-in tariffs in many countries, the risk for new investments in renewable energy technologies and particularly solar PV increases. Power Purchase Agreements is one way to provide security for investors. However, in comparison to FiT, which acts as a public guarantee for electricity off-take prices, PPAs can only be considered a de facto public guarantee when the off-taker is a state-owned company, in the best case. In any other scenario, the IPP depends on the success of a privately owned company for the term of 15 years.

Is this development a possible showstopper decreasing new investments?
