An AAE is a contractual agreement to buy a lot of energy at an agreed price, for a period of time, before the production of energy. For future AAEs, a basic PPP base has been developed between the Bonneville Power Administration and a wind power generation unit.  Solar PPAs is now being successfully used in the California Solar Initiative`s Multifamily Affordable Solar Housing (MASH) program.  This aspect of the success of the CSI program has only recently been opened up to applications. The buyer generally requires the seller to guarantee that the project meets certain performance standards. Performance guarantees allow the buyer to plan accordingly when developing new facilities or when executing application plans, which also encourages the seller to keep appropriate records. In cases where the supplier`s delivery does not meet the buyer`s contractual energy needs, the seller is responsible for restructuring the buyer`s debt. Other guarantees can be contractually agreed, including availability guarantees and performance curves. Both types of safeguards are more applicable in regions where the energy used by renewable technologies is more volatile.  An electricity purchase agreement (AAE) is a contractual agreement between energy buyers and sellers. They meet and agree to buy and sell an amount of energy generated or generated by a renewable asset.
AAEs are generally signed for a long-term period of between 10 and 20 years. Kenya – Electricity Purchase Contract (AAE) – Simplified agreement for Kenya A relatively simplified electricity purchase agreement has been developed for Kenya`s electricity regulator for use in « Hydro, Geothermal or Gas » electricity generation facilities. It expects a capacity load and an energy load. The seller must sell all the net electrical power of the installation to the buyer. The Energy Regulatory Commission also provides a link to a PPP model for large renewable generators over 10 MW and an AAE for smaller renewable energy projects of less than 10 MW on its renewable energy portal. Power Purchase Agreement (AAE) and Implementation Agreement, International law firm (issued in 2006) for Pakistan`s Private Power and Infrastructure Board – Standard Electricity Docking Contract and Fossil Fuel Implementation Agreement developed by the International Law Firm for Pakistan`s Private Power and Infrastructure Board, as well as a Pricing Schedule Model for the PPP and the Directive that established the general framework that led to the development of the three standard policy forms documents 2002 ( PDF). Power Purchase Agreement (AAE) – Short form agreement for small energy projects in Namibia Standard-contract to purchase electricity in abbreviated version for small energy projects in Namibia. This is part of a series of documents, including a fuel supply agreement, found at the Nib Electricity Control Board. French contracts for the purchase of standard electricity (Indicative models of electricity obligation contracts) for small installations and renewable energy sources, under the 2000 Act (Law 2000-108 of February 10, 2000) and the corresponding decree law (decree 2000-877 of September 7, 2000) and the 2001 decree (Decret-Nr.2001-410 of 10 May 2001), whose grid and distributors must source electricity from small generators and wind power – Arré du 8 June 2001 setting the conditions for the purchase of electricity generated by facilities using wind mechanical energy as referred to in Article 2 (2o) of Decree No. 2000-1196 of 6 December 2000.
