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. AAEs are often seen as a central document in the development of independent power generation units (power plants). Because it defines the revenue conditions for the project and the quality of the credit, it is essential for obtaining project financing without recourse. The figure above describes the basic structure of AAEs, in which the owner of the hydrolocation (host site) is also the entity that consumes energy power (buyer). The owner of Hydro Site enters into an agreement with the developer who builds and operates the micro-water facility. One of the challenges of the energy market is that owners of renewable facilities and electricity consumers do not have the same needs. One wants an uninterrupted supply, the other can only sell electricity if it is produced according to weather conditions.
Limejump will lead production from DHG`s 1.2 MW Langwell Hydro Power Plant near Ullapool, Scotland. DHG Hydro has one of the largest portfolios of UK hydropower plants in operation or in development outside of large distribution companies. The benefits for the buyer are price stability, affordability and safeguarding the volatility of electricity prices. The buyer will know what the cost of their service will be for the duration of the agreement, which is very different from the purchase of electricity by the distribution company, which can increase prices almost at any time. In general, there is an economic saving for the buyer and the environmental requirement for the use of renewable energy. The buyer does not need to make much capital and does not need to be a microhydro expert to choose the microhydro with an AEA. A POWER Purchase Agreement (PPA) is a contract between an energy seller and a buyer. The above AAEs must be distinguished from electricity purchase contracts in a deregulated electricity market, which are generally contracts to purchase electricity from a private generator where the plant already exists or when the plant is built at the initiative of the private generator.

Electricity Purchase Contract (AAE) for small rural energy projects are part of a series of documents developed by international law firms for use in small rural energy projects. Documents prepared for the country in Southeast Asia. A power purchase agreement (AAE) provides payment flow for a build-own transfer (BOT) or a concession project for an independent power plant (PPI).
It is between the “buyer” buyer (often a state electricity supplier) and a private electricity producer. The AAE described here is not suitable for electricity sold on world markets (see deregulated electricity markets below). This summary focuses on a basic thermal charge facility (the problems would be slightly different for thermal or hydroelectric power plants in the central area or in the state-of-the-art facilities).
