Nordics cheapest, Germany dearest

Zeigo’s energy analyst Matthieu Paturet gave S&P Global Platts insight into what has been happening in the market for Q4. Key highlights include:

  • Overall PPA offer prices decreased 2%
  • The Nordics continue to have the cheapest PPA prices with Spain a close second
  • High potential in the German market
  • The UK remained an established corporate PPA market with a potential for aggregation.

"Growing momentum for PPAs and a fragmented corporate demand shows good potential for aggregation in the UK, where smaller consumers could be pooled together to form a large off-taking group for a project," Paturet said. Aggregation is something that Zeigo has been working on and will be releasing a solution in the near future.

Overall PPA offer prices decreased 2%

Seems to be more or less noise-- relatively constant. How has this compared with costs to produce? I would think with better tech, the cost for clean generation is dropping faster than that, so what does that suggest about the market value of PPAs?
