West Africa: PPA Handbook Launch and Workshop

Launch of the Power Purchase Agreements Handbook in Abuja

Understanding Power Purchase Agreements: The handbook which was drafted in early November 2014 (in partnership with the African Legal Support Facility); is intended to provide an overview of PPAs and the obligations, risks and remedies that are found within them. The handbook, which will prove a beneficial tool for the negotiation of PPAs, as well as building capacity within African governments to understand PPAs, was drafted by a group of international experts including contributors from governments, development banks, private banks and leading international law firms.
