Google and AES Announce Cloud-Based Partnership for Clean Energy

In order to meet its renewable energy targets, Google has recently promised millions of dollars for clean-energy-supported manufacturing, signed deals on a record-breaking renewables portfolio, and even joined a couple of regional transmission organizations. On Wednesday, the company announced it would push its renewables capabilities further by partnering its Cloud service with independent power producer AES Corporation on a “10-year strategic alliance,” which the companies said would use tools like artificial intelligence and data analytics to modernize the electric grid and support new renewables projects in the U.S. and Latin America. The two companies are already working together on two projects in Chile; one is a 100-megawatt wind farm, and the other is an 80-megawatt solar installation that will power a Google data center. Those projects are part of the 1.6 gigawatts' worth of new capacity that Google announced in September.
