Iberdrola and Amazon have announced a new global collaboration to support the development of large-scale renewable energy projects and leverage cloud computing technology to enhance digitalization in the energy transition.
Iberdrola and Amazon have agreed to collaborate on new wind and solar capacity by signing power purchase agreements (PPA) for projects in Europe, the U.S. and Asia-Pacific.
Two of Iberdrola’s offshore windfarms in Germany (Baltic Eagle and Windanker) will provide Amazon with 1.1 terawatt-hours (TWh) of clean energy each year. Baltic Eagle is located in the Baltic Sea, north of the island of Rügen and will have a total capacity of 476MW when completed in 2024. Windanker, also located in the Baltic Sea, will have 300MW of installed capacity and will be completed in 2026.
In addition to the agreement with Amazon for renewable energy, Iberdrola has selected Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) as its preferred cloud provider.
