Time: 14:30 - 15:15

Date: 2024-04-11


Shape risks result from a disconnect between demand and renewable energy generation’s variable and intermittent nature. This can cause financial risk to counterparties. This panel discusses the impact of shape risk, how it can be mitigated and how that should be priced by covering:

  • How to structure PPAs so they are flexible and resilient to shape risk.
  • How data analytics can assess the scale of shape risk.
  • The impact of creating a demand response program to reduce shape risks from PPAs.
