Amazon on path to reach 100% renewable energy by 2025

Amazon today announced 37 new renewable energy projects around the world, marking significant progress on its path to power 100% of its operations with renewable energy by 2025 — five years ahead of the original target of 2030. The projects will supply clean energy for Amazon’s operations, including its corporate offices, fulfillment centers and Amazon Web Services (AWS) data centers that support millions of customers globally.

“The project, which will span dozens of turbines, is a joint venture between Copenhagen Infrastructure Amazon also continues to invest in renewable energy projects paired with energy storage. The energy storage systems allow Amazon to store clean energy produced by its solar projects and deploy it when solar energy is not available, such as in the evening hours, or during periods of high demand…

“Amazon continues to be a leader in rapidly scaling up renewable energy projects here in the U.S. This increasingly includes hybrid projects that pair energy storage with renewable energy generation, unlocking the ability to use clean reliable energy throughout all hours of the day,” said Heather Zichal CEO of the American Clean Power Association (ACP).
