Route to market service

Cornwall Insight’s ‘Route to market service’ provides an in-depth analysis of the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) market for the growing range of asset types in Ireland and Northern Ireland. The service is aimed at asset developers, owners, operators, optimisers, investors and third-party advisors.

Issued every six months, the ‘Route to market service’ provides a benchmark industry view to assist market players in understanding and navigating an often opaque area.

The service is designed to give subscribers a single, comprehensive and commercially critical source of intelligence on contracts that drive asset returns and underwrite new project investments.

The service provides an overview of the market by technology and subsidy, and therefore the opportunities for offtakers to secure new PPAs with generators in development, coming out of subsidy or looking to enter subsidy. It also details the amount of capacity by offtaker that is currently under PPAs.

We also detail key market developments in revenue streams, for generators who want to maximise the value from their assets, benefit from understanding the range of PPA services available in the market and the offtakers who provide these services.
