Blackfinch Energy continues to use Renewable Exchange platform in 2021 to enhance asset value for investors

July 26 2021

At Renewable Exchange we are delighted to continue our ongoing relationship with leading UK investment business Blackfinch Energy, who has again tendered various wind generation projects through our power purchase agreement (PPA) platform.

This is the 4th consecutive time these assets have been tendered and executed via the Renewable Exchange platform, with a total of 18 different UK electricity suppliers bidding for the power produced by these turbines across the different tenders.

Blackfinch Energy was an early adopter of the exchange, supporting our growth from a tech start-up to a leading UK digital platform, and we are grateful for their continued support as we grow and expand in the UK and Europe. The platform continues to evolve, increasing functionality to improve the experience for both sellers and buyers of renewable power, such as recent additions of portfolio tendering and an embedded digital PPA for instant execution of contracts. We’re committed to bringing as many generators and offtakers together as possible for a fair and transparent tender process. 
Quote from Jolyon Ridgwell: Renewable Exchange continues to deliver value for our assets in a transparent and dynamic way. The platform provides flexibility by allowing us to decide when we tender, and so enabling us to react quickly to market movements. The platform also allows us to select the counterparties with which we execute as required by our stakeholders.
Quote from Robert Ogden: Blackfinch has been with us since the start and we are grateful and pleased that they continue to support us on our journey to being a key partner for PPA analysis and tendering in the UK.
