French contracts for the purchase of standard electricity (Indicative models of electricity obligation contracts) for small installations and renewable energy sources, under the 2000 Act (Law 2000-108 of February 10, 2000) and the corresponding decree law (decree 2000-877 of September 7, 2000) and the 2001 decree (Decret-Nr.2001-410 of 10 May 2001), whose grid and distributors must source electricity from small generators and wind power – Arré du 8 June 2001 setting the conditions for the purchase of electricity generated by facilities using wind mechanical energy as referred to in Article 2 (2o) of Decree No. 2000-1196 of 6 December 2000. Another important discussion will focus on development stones, the implementation schedule and the commercial date of operation of the energy project. The advantage of renewable energy projects is that additional solar turbines or modules can be added to facilitate the commercial operating date only in the case of a traditional power plant. Important milestones and long-standing dates for certain conditions, including penalties for delays, would require special attention. Delays are mainly due to the EPC phase (engineering, procurement and construction). The AAE will set the producer`s electricity generation and supply obligations at certain points and set the price at which this benefit is acquired. A power purchase agreement (AAE) provides payment flow for a build-own transfer (BOT) or a concession project for an independent power plant (PPI). It is between the « buyer » buyer (often a state electricity supplier) and a private electricity producer. The AAE described here is not suitable for electricity sold on world markets (see deregulated electricity markets below). This summary focuses on a basic thermal charge facility (the problems would be slightly different for thermal or hydroelectric power plants in the central area or in the state-of-the-art facilities).
Long-term project of an electricity supply contract (AAE) of the Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) (for projects for which location and fuel are indicated) (pdf) – Draft electricity supply contract developed by CERC for the Indian PPI market – for long-term agreements (more than 7 years) for the construction of power plants in which the site is not indicated. A link is the draft request for submissions – for the ppA project, you go to page 70. For renewable energy projects, the AEA contains additional clauses on the environmental attributes of the project, the specific risks of these projects and, depending on the jurisdiction, provisions relating to renewable energy credits (IAC).
