E. Limitation of Liability. Like other suppliers and suppliers, turbine suppliers and Balance of Plant Contractors make every effort without exception to limit their liability to a project promoter. A frequent claim is the waiver of consequential, indirect, random and special damages. These clauses and the exclusions they contain must be carefully negotiated, as the definitions of such damages can be ambiguous. Both the turbine supplier and the contractor will generally attempt to limit their respective liability for damage due to late performance to lump sum damage of a given value, with a maximum ceiling equal to an agreed percentage of the value of the contract in question. The parties may determine the maximum overall liability that a contractor may have; However, the parties may, after consultation, assume additional responsibility towards the contractor. For example, the Contractor could agree that the contractual limitation of its aggregate liability would not apply in cases where the Developer (1) has not fulfilled its contractual obligation under an electricity receiving contract or has received (2) a certain tax benefit or credit due to delays caused by the Contractor.

While offshore wind projects face a number of challenges, including the total cost of project execution, a number of developers follow large projects. Although the project does not have a purchase agreement at this time, approvals have been granted for Fisherman`s Energy Atlantic City wind farm off the coast of New Jersey. Once completed, the project will produce 24 MW from six turbines with a rated capacity of 4 MW each. Further up the Atlantic coast, the much more ambitious Cap Wind project has not received enough funding to continue, but many others are progressing rapidly in New York, Massachusetts, Delaware and elsewhere. The Pacific coast is also seeing an increase in offshore wind development activity. Offshore wind designer Trident Winds is following the development of a 650 MW floating wind farm off the coast of San Luis Obispo County, California. In 2017, Anheuser-Busch InBev agreed to acquire 220 MW of new wind power with an ECA from energy provider Iberdrola in Mexico.  SAs can be managed by service providers on the European market.
Legal agreements between the national electricity sectors (seller) and the distributor (buyer/who buys large quantities of electricity) are treated as ESAs in the energy sector.
