Export Half Hourly Data


We've been working hard this week to help a generator with 2 large wind turbines who has asked us to analyse his current contract, and see what we can achieve for him once his current contract expires in almost a years time.

Currently on a PPA that offers various unit rates for different times of the day, as well as different months of the year, with peak time unit rates of over £90/MWh, on the face of it it looked like a lucrative deal. After digging in to the half hourly data however it soon became apparent that the current contract did not suit his export profile at all, and there were massive opportunities currently being missed due to the nature of the contract.

With the data analysed we were then able to reach out to our contacts and increase his revenue by just under £42,000/year, simply by tailoring a deal that suited his specific generation and export patterns.

Whilst in export PPA negotiations, I cannot stress the importance of analysing your half hourly data enough, it's the only true way to make a direct comparison between offers to ensure your deal is the most lucrative on the market.

If anybody requires assistance with this, whether you choose to use our contract negotiation services or not, I'll be happy to help you break your half hourly data down to ensure you're basing your decision off accurate data whilst negotiating. [email protected].
