In this podcast, we join leading global infrastructure and renewables market analysts Inspiratia to discuss innovation in the UK power purchase agreement (PPA) market, and whether the prices we see today are transitionary and if so, how PPAs can make such prices sustainable and meet the ever-changing needs of both offtakers and sellers.

The podcast was moderated by Omolola Coker, head of research and insight at Inspiratia. She was joined for the discussion by:

James Stanier, a specialist energy lawyer at international law firm Gowling WLG, who has worked in the sector for over a decade. James advises market-leading offtakers, major utilities, lenders, energy traders, suppliers, network owners, operators, and developers. James has a particular specialism in PPAs and has drafted and negotiated PPAs for a significant proportion of GB's largest renewable projects (including for example for the Seagreen, Dudgeon and Crystal Rig wind farms). James increasingly advises on corporate PPAs and projects proceeding without subsidy support.
