Hype to HPA: Crafting Offtake Strategies and Purchase Agreements

In the nascent hydrogen market, bilateral offtake agreements are used to mitigate market and price risks, with producers and buyers employing Hydrogen Purchase Agreements (HPAs) for this purpose. These agreements are crucial for developing and financing hydrogen projects, ensuring a consistent revenue stream for producers and a reliable supply for buyers.

Analysing renewable markets, various HPA structures can be created, such as fixed price, indexed, and tolling. We anticipate a cost-based HPA trend in Europe until a liquid market emerges by the mid-to-late 2030s. We will examine diverse HPA structures in key European countries, exploring price ranges for projects commissioned in the short term.

In this Public Webinar, we will address the following questions:

  • What types of HPA structures are available? What are the main drivers of HPA prices?
  • What is the impact of these drivers on the HPA prices?
  • What is the impact of subsidy eligibility criteria, and how do they differ in Great Britain and Europe?
  • How do HPAs compare across Great Britain, Germany, Spain, and Denmark, and how would subsidising those assets compare respectively?
