Export Contracting & Power Purchase Agreements

With the rise in on-site renewable projects, Boxfish have developed a range of services designed to assist our clients monetise the excess capacity that can’t be utilised easily on site.

By building on our near 30-years of energy industry know-how and our well-developed links to the energy suppliers, we are able to support our clients to set-up and export any excess renewable generation capacity back to the grid, via a reverse tender exercise (essentially, flipping our energy procurement service 180°) creating a potentially new and lucrative revenue stream that ranges from small scale Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) type payments through to larger, long-term Power Purchase Agreement arrangements.

Not only that, we can also advise clients looking to tap into the rise in renewable generation but who aren’t able to develop their own generation capacity. By matching their demand profile with generators looking to sell their excess capacity, we can help secure a short, medium and long-term sources of zero carbon, lower cost energy.
