Scope 2 Emissions Reduction: PPA’S & BTM
Corporate renewable power purchase agreements (PPAs) have become a key consideration in 100% renewable energy, carbon neutrality and/or net zero emissions strategies. In addition to the emissions reduction benefits, a corporate renewable PPA offers a potential hedge against medium and long-term electricity market price risks.
Combining a PPA with Behind the Meter Solutions for our clients is a key methodology for the reduction of Scope 2 Emissions.
Empire can undertake the assessment of your energy needs for a PPA as well as the financials for behind the meter solutions for your site.
