Sustainability - renewables - electricity - power purchase agreements.

In this context, an operational asset is one that has already been built, and is already generating renewable electricity.

Contrasted with a New build.

In simple terms, striking a power purchase agreement in relation to an operational asset is likely to be:

  • Considered less "green", because no new green capacity is added to the power network.

In this context, operational assets are sometimes known as Existing assets.
