Casino Group and Amazon Web Services agreed to a strategic collaboration to aid each company’s sustainability goals. Casino Group, through its energy subsidiary GreenYellow, which is a major international player in decentralized solar power generation and energy efficiency, is pleased to announce it agreed to a Corporate Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Amazon for a new utility-scale solar project in France. The deal highlights GreenYellow’s ability to provide renewable energy for the power needs of large companies operating in France.
The companies will continue to evaluate other renewable projects in France and across Europe.
The renewable electricity purchased under the PPA will help support Amazon’s commitment to power its global operations with 100% renewable energy as part of its Climate Pledge commitment to reach net-zero carbon by 2040—10 years ahead of the Paris Agreement.
Under this collaboration, Casino Group and its subsidiary GreenYellow will benefit from AWS Cloud services fueled with green energy. AWS will also work with RelevanC, the Group’s subsidiary specializing in data marketing solutions, to develop algorithms to further enhance customer experience.
Casino Group once again demonstrates its ability to partner with the best players in each sector to pursue its digital transformation. It is consolidating its collaboration with Amazon around three essential axis: energy with GreenYellow which supports major players in meeting their sustainability goals, the digitalization, of its IT architecture in particular, and algorithms developed to enhance customer experience."

Tri Global Energy | June 03, 2021
Tri Global Energy, a leading originator, and developer of utility-scale renewable energy projects, has announced an agreement to sell two renewable energy projects – a wind and a solar project -- in Blackford County, Indiana, to leeward Renewable Energy, a premier owner/operator with a portfolio of approximately 2,000 MW of generating capacity from renewable sources.
Both projects were originated by Tri Global Energy (TGE) in 2019. Blackford Wind will deliver up to 200 MW, and Blackford Solar will be qualified for up to 150 MW. The projects combined are expected to produce enough energy to power more than 80,000 homes.
TGE and Leeward Renewable Energy will work with the county, state, and federal authorities to secure the requisite permits and bring the two projects into construction, with operations projected to commence as early as 2023.
This is the second deal between Tri Global Energy and Leeward Renewable Energy. The two companies announced a transaction involving two of Tri Global Energy's original Indiana projects in White County (180 MW Hoosier Line Wind and 400 MW Honey Creek Solar) in April.
Great Bay Renewables, a joint venture company between certain funds managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management, Inc. and Altius Renewable Royalties Corp., is providing royalty financing in support of Tri Global Energy, completing and funding this project development through the start of construction.
