Until now, buying green electricity has been a question of reserving some of the existing energy in advance. But every party in this agreement had a desire to do even better – a desire to find a new solution to bring new renewable energy to the market at a competitive price.
Simply put, Energi Danmark solves two challenges associated with traditional PPA agreements; the elimination of price risk and the management of the difference between consumption and production.
Going forward, as the balance responsible party for both consumption and production, Energi Danmark will work constructively on flexible electricity consumption and will optimise supply and demand in the market to benefit society as a whole.
- Creating more new renewable energy is the focal point of the shift to a green energy supply. The PPA agreement puts Chr. Hansen at the forefront of the shift to green energy in Denmark and paves the way for establishing similar innovative solutions for small and medium-sized companies that want to make a positive contribution to Denmark's overall energy balance, explains Peter Munck Søe-Jensen, Head of Power Production & Asset Management at Better Energy.
Sustainability combined with budget security
The PPA agreement means that Chr. Hansen remains the world leader when it comes to sustainability and also ensures budget security.
