How does FPP work?

You provide us a forecasted annual volume – can be calendar or financial year - and then you choose to fix the price of energy over that period, either in quarters or yearly tranches.

Digital FPP

As part of an Origin FPP contract, you’ll get access to our dedicated FPP portal that allows you to:

  • Make energy purchases,
  • View all your FPP contracts in one place,
  • See your current energy forecasts and reforecast,
  • Make an enquiry specific to your FPP contract.

All this with the ability to view Origin’s real time pricing. Or if you prefer, submit an offer direct to our Origin trading team.


Origin is a leading supplier of FPP arrangements. We closed our first FPP in 2005, and have contracted more than 13 TWh under FPPs.

Yes. We have invested significantly in the development of the FPP, creating a fully featured FPP Schedule that appends to our standard Electricity Supply Agreement. Supported by our robust systems & processes, we provide expertise at all stages of our agreement. 

Our Wholesale & Trading team will provide timely feedback on the state of the market and where we have identified a market opportunity provide an offer for your consideration.

You can choose the optimal mix of spot and fixed price exposure on a quarterly basis. With the Commercial FPP you may update the consumption forecast annually, with a ±10% tolerance band.

We require six months’ notice to trigger a no-fault termination clause. We will even make an offer to you to convert the existing agreement to a standard ESA; taking into account any forward purchases. We don’t lock you in to a long-term deal.

We are happy to facilitate a conversation with one of our satisfied customers at an appropriate point in our negotiations.
