ACWA Power Set to Launch New Company, ACWA Power RenewCo.; Appoints Chris Ehlers Chief Executive Officer of ACWA Power RenewCo

ACWA Power is set to launch a new company that will group its existing renewable energy portfolio and act as a platform to capitalize on the rapidly growing market potential for renewable energy in emerging markets. They currently produce over 1 GW of renewable power in markets which have an energy gap. All the power they generate was procured through transparent competitive bidding and is supplied on long-term offtake contracts to entities supported by stable, sovereign backed Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), which offers significant risk mitigation and in turn has enabled them to deliver competitive tariffs providing stable, long-term revenues to ACWA Power RenewCo. With rapid advances in technology and efficiency in manufacturing and construction driving down capital cost, with the quality of RE resources available and the low interest rate environment, RE is the most competitive solution for the segment of energy they consume when the sun is shining or the wind is blowing even when compared to the alternative where fossil fuel is subsidized. ACWA Power currently has a presence in 11 countries across the Middle East and North Africa, Turkey, Southern Africa and South East Asia regions. Its portfolio with an investment value in excess of USD 33 billion generates 23+ GW of power and produces 2.5 million m3 /day of desalinated water to be delivered on a bulk basis to state utilities and industrial majors on long-term off-take contracts under Public-Private-Partnership, concession and utility services outsourcing models. The new company that has been established ACWA Power RewnewCo - will be headed by Chris Ehlers, currently Chief Operating Officer Renewables at ACWA Power, who has been appointed Chief Executive Officer.
