AWS to be powered by Brookfield

Brookfield Renewable has agreed to provide clean energy capacity to power Amazon’s operations on three continents. Brookfield Asset Management has also selected Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a preferred cloud provider to automate its hydroelectric, wind, and solar operations.

Brookfield Renewable, a subsidiary of Brookfield Asset Management will provide 602MW of wind and solar energy capacity to power Amazon’s operations. In total, these projects are expected to generate 1,370 GWh.

The collaboration keeps Amazon on track to power its operations with fully renewable energy by 2025, five years ahead of its original 2030 commitment, and to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2040. The committed 601.6 MW of power purchase agreements (PPAs) will provide electricity to seven Amazon projects—three in the US (in Arkansas, Illinois, and Mississippi), three in Europe (in Spain, Northern Ireland, and Italy), and one of Amazon’s first projects in India.
