Amazon adds 39 new renewable energy projects in Europe


Amazon has announced that it added 39 new renewable energy projects in Europe this year.

The energy projects include 24 utility-scale wind and solar projects. In addition, it also consists of the first solar farm in Greece.

The global pioneer company shared that it has added more than 1GW of clean energy capacity to grids across Europe. With this addition, Amazon has over 160 wind and solar projects across 13 countries in Europe so far.

According to the company, the projects are likely to provide 5.8GW of clean energy capacity once they enter into operation. The generated power is enough to power more than 4.9 million households annually.

Lindsay McQuade, director of energy, EMEA at Amazon, was quoted in a statement, "With more than 160 wind and solar projects in Europe, Amazon is helping to provide new sources of clean energy to local grids, creating jobs, and supporting local businesses as we progress toward powering our operations with 100% renewable energy by 2025.”

The company further shared that its investment is helping to accelerate the decarbonization of energy grids.

"Corporate investment is an important catalyst to help transition toward a clean energy future, and we look forward to continuing to work with governments, local communities, and energy providers across Europe to deliver more renewable energy into local grids," Lindsay further remarked.
