Our mission: Unlock clean energy markets through transparency.

Our climate future hinges on whether global clean energy markets can rapidly scale. But electricity contracts in emerging economies are often signed behind closed doors, slowing deployment and stifling competition. Secret contracts result in more expensive and less reliable power needed for people and industry. PPA Watch advocates for contract transparency to accelerate reliable, modern clean energy for everyone.

PPA Transparency in 2 Minutes

Watch our video to learn why PPA transparency is needed to meet the world’s climate goals & the energy needs of billions.

Scale of the challenge
The world needs more than 1,000 GW of new clean power every year through 2050 to have a chance of reaching net zero. That’s equivalent to building the entire U.S. electricity system every year for the next three decades.
