Sustainability - renewables - electricity - power purchase agreements.

In this context, an existing 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 existing asset is likely to be:

  • Less expensive, because set up and installation costs may already be covered, but
  • Considered less "green", because no new green capacity is added to the power network.

In this context, existing assets are sometimes known as Operational assets.
