The AES Corporation has announced that it is entering into a 10-year strategic alliance with Google to accelerate the growth and adoption of clean energy by leveraging Google Cloud technology to pioneer innovation in the sector. This alliance builds on the recent agreement between Google and AES to provide long-term renewable power to Google’s data center in Chile.
The two companies will work together to improve the experience for corporate energy customers and to develop and implement solutions that enable broad adoption of clean energy. AES will collaborate with Google Cloud on energy management and opportunities to sponsor clean energy projects in targeted markets in the USA and Latin America that have the potential to help Google meet its clean energy objectives.
As part of this alliance, AES will use Google Cloud technology to help create the grid of the future and improve the experience for energy customers. AES innovation partner, Uplight, will also utilise Google Cloud technology to enhance its end-to-end energy action system, to increase customer satisfaction and reduce carbon emissions. Google Cloud’s platform, tools and technology will help redefine and improve AES and Uplight’s delivery of customer solutions through cloud computing, data analytics, machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI).
