Zeigo, the innovative energy tech platform which uses AI to connect corporate energy buyers with renewable energy generators and suppliers continues to grow, adding over 4GW of capacity onto the PPA marketplace in March 2020. The Zeigo platform now has projects available across Europe, including the UK, Spain, Poland, Italy and the Nordics.

Zeigo’s PPA platform now hosts details of more than 300 projects totalling 18GW, owned by over 60 trusted renewable energy developers. Zeigo, which earlier this month (14th April) announced that it had a raised £800,000 in seed funding to accelerate its growth, offers buyers a more transparent, efficient and informed market for renewables across the UK and Europe.

Working alongside the leading players with portfolios of onshore wind, offshore wind, hydro and solar such as BKW, RES, and RWE Zeigo’s PPA tech platform uses AI and data to provide an advanced route to market at this critical time.

Germain Augsburger, Business Development Manager, BKW Energy: “Zeigo is disrupting the way companies and utilities can foster and procure renewable power from existing and new-build power plants. The Zeigo team has streamlined matchmaking processes between supply and demand and has provided the digital and independent platform that is needed to connect large power consumers and renewable project developers.”

According to the recent BloombergNEF Corporate PPA Price Survey, Sweden and Spain respectively have the cheapest average corporate PPA prices in Europe for wind and solar electricity. Even in these uncertain times, the benefits for PPAs still apply. Zeigo’s transparent and extensive network and its unique data insights help both corporates and renewable energy developers establish a far-reaching view of the market.

Zeigo’s founder & CEO Juan Pablo Cerda said: “The need and desire for society to move to a low carbon future is stronger than ever. We expect that as governments seek to rebuild their economies post Covid-19, that they will focus on rebuilding them in a more sustainable way and this is good news for all of us.

We recently completed a market testing exercise for one of the largest energy users in the UK. We received 28 submissions from renewable projects that offered the best prices we have seen to date. This illustrates that now is a good time for large corporates to be shopping for a PPA, as there is scope to influence negotiations with depressed forward prices for wholesale electricity.”

With ambitions to become the principal global platform to source renewable energy, Zeigo would like to hear from more renewable energy developers to fulfil buyer demand. Contact info@zeigo.energy if you have projects for the Zeigo platform.
