Google says it will buy the entire output of an 18-turbine, 62MW Dutch wind energy project in the Netherlands to supply power to a data centre it is building.
Company officials said that Google wants both price certainty and to ensure that the US$ 750 million data centre in Eemshaven, Netherlands, due to be completed in 2017 will be supplied by renewable energy from the start. The wind project is also still under construction nearby Delfzijl, with turbines both onshore and off the coast in the North Sea. Google did not disclose terms but said it has signed a 10-year contract.
