Sustainability - renewables - electricity - power purchase agreements.

In this context, a new build asset is an asset for green electricity generation that has not yet been built.

Contrasted with an Existing asset.

In simple terms, striking a power purchase agreement (PPA) in relation to a new build asset is likely to:

  • Be more expensive, because set up and installation costs will not yet have been covered, but
  • Considered more "green", because new green capacity is added to the power network.
  • Be longer term than an existing asset PPA, and
  • Provide greater scope for a buyer to secure prices for a correspondingly longer time period.

In this context, new build assets are sometimes known as New-to-earth assets.
