[PANEL] Pros and Cons of Spot Market and PPA - Power Generators' Perspective

  • There are several available pricing mechanisms in Ausralia’s electricity market. The most usual one is to pour wind power into spot market, where the price is fluctuating. On the other hand, a increasing number of power generators are employing power purchase agreement, where the expected revenue is relatively stable. You can learn from a few generators with rich portfolio in the session and to see which one is suitable for you.
