Traditionally, a power purchase agreement, or PPA, is a contract between a government agency and a private utility company. The private company agrees to produce electricity, or some other power source, for the government agency over a long period of time. Most PPA partners are locked into contracts that last between 15 and 25 years, but they can otherwise vary dramatically in terms of the commissioning process, curtailments, transmission issue resolution, credit, insurance, and environmental regulations.

Digitalisation has transformed the transportation sector, bringing the concept of connected vehicles making them smart enough to be interacted with, unlike traditional vehicles that were designed with the singular intent of moving of moving people of freight. Connected vehicles have allowed automakers and service providers to tap into various data streams flowing out of vehicles in real time, which is used to create insights into vehicle operation and maintainance.
