Amazon has Become Europe's Largest Corporate Buyer of Renewable Energy

Amazon | April 20, 2021

Amazon announced nine major utility-scale wind and solar energy facilities in the United States, Canada, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom today. The company now has 206 clean energy projects around the world, including 71 utility-scale wind and solar projects and 135 solar rooftops on facilities and shops, totaling 8.5 GW of electricity production capacity. With this latest announcement, Amazon has become Europe's largest corporate purchaser of renewable energy, with over 2.5 GW of renewable energy potential, enough to fuel more than two million European homes annually. These projects provide renewable energy to Amazon's corporate offices, fulfillment centers, Whole Foods Market sites, and Amazon Web Services (AWS) data centers, which fuel Amazon and millions of AWS customers around the world. The renewable energy produced by these ventures also contributes to Amazon's pledge to produce sustainable energy equal to the electricity used by all user Echo products. Both of these projects set Amazon on track to fuel 100% of its operations with clean energies by 2025, five years earlier than the initial goal of 2030. The nine new wind and solar projects announced today in the U.S., Canada, Spain, Sweden, and the UK include: • The first solar project paired with energy storage: Amazon's first solar project, based in California's Imperial Valley, is combined with energy storage, allowing the company to match solar generation to peak demand. The project produces 100 megawatts (MW) of solar electricity, enough to fuel over 28,000 homes for a year, and provides 70 MW of energy storage. The initiative also enables Amazon to install next-generation energy storage and management systems while ensuring the stability and durability of California's power grid. • First renewable project in Canada:Amazon also announced the first renewable energy venture in Canada, an 80 MW solar plant in Alberta's County of Newell. When completed, it will provide over 195,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of clean electricity to the grid, which is enough to fuel more than 18,000 Canadian homes for a year. • The largest corporate renewable energy project in the UK: Amazon's newest project in the United Kingdom is a 350 MW wind farm off the coast of Scotland, which will be the company's biggest in the world. It is also the first corporate renewable energy contract revealed to date by any organization in the United Kingdom. • New projects in the U.S.: The 118 MW wind project in Murray County is Amazon's first renewable energy project in Oklahoma. Amazon is now constructing new solar plants in the Ohio counties of Allen, Auglaize, and Licking. These ventures in Ohio will account for more than 400 MW of new energy procurement in the state. • Additional investments in Spain and Sweden: Amazon's newest solar projects in Spain are in Extremadura and Andalucia, and they will contribute more than 170 MW to the grid. Amazon's most recent project in Sweden is a 258 MW onshore wind farm in Northern Sweden. In 2019, Amazon and Global Optimism co-founded The Climate Pledge, a pledge to meet the Paris Agreement ten years early and achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2040. There are currently 53 signatories of the promise, including IBM, Unilever, Verizon, Siemens, Microsoft, and Best Buy. To achieve its goal, Amazon will continue to reduce emissions throughout its operations by taking real business actions and establishing a path to power its operations with 100% renewable electricity, five years ahead of the company's original 2030 target; delivering on its Shipment Zero vision of making all shipments net-zero carbon, with 50% net-zero carbon by 2030; purchasing 100,000 electric delivery vehicles, the largest ever order of electric delivery vehicles; and by investing $2 billion through the Climate Pledge Fund in the creation of decarbonizing services and solutions. About Amazon Amazon is guided by four principles: customer obsession over competitor focus, a passion for invention, a commitment to operational excellence, and long-term thinking. Amazon invented products and services such as customer ratings, 1-Click browsing, personalized recommendations, Prime, Fulfillment by Amazon, AWS, Kindle Direct Publishing, Kindle, Fire tablets, Fire TV, Amazon Echo, and Alexa.

Duke Energy Sustainable Solutions announces its first wind energy project in Iowa - 207-MW Ledyard Windpower

Duke Energy | September 22, 2021

Duke Energy Sustainable Solutions,* a nonregulated commercial brand of Duke Energy , today announced the construction of the 207-megawatt (MW) Ledyard Windpower project in Kossuth County, Iowa. This will be the company's first renewable energy project in the state. To support Verizon's net-zero goals, it has entered into a 15-year virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) for 180 MW of the wind energy generated by Ledyard Windpower. We're excited to enter into the Iowa market, a state that has valuable wind resources and is ranked second in wind energy generation. Ledyard Windpower will not only add cleaner energy and economic value to Kossuth County, but it will also contribute to Duke Energy's goal of reaching 47,000 MW of renewable energy by 2050. Chris Fallon, president of Duke Energy Sustainable Solutions Once in operation, the Ledyard Windpower project will increase Duke Energy Sustainable Solutions' U.S. wind capacity to over 3,100 MW. The site will provide enough renewable energy to power the equivalent of more than 72,450 U.S. homes. Along with indirect economic benefits that accompany wind project development, such as increased local spending in the service and construction industries, Ledyard Windpower, which is slated to be complete at the end of 2022, will create approximately 200 jobs during peak construction. Additionally, the 12,000 acre agriculture site, which will continue to be used by farmers, will have a positive economic impact on the local community by providing significant local tax revenues during assessment years of commercial operation to the county and local school districts, as well as meaningful payments to participating landowners. Ledyard Windpower was co-developed by Duke Energy Sustainable Solutions and Amshore Renewable Energy. Full mobilization of construction for the project began in August 2021 by Wanzek Construction. Vestas will supply 46 Vestas V150 4.5-MW turbines for the project and Duke Energy Sustainable Solutions will perform the site's long-term maintenance and operations.
