AES, Amazon Sign PPAs for 450 MW of Solar Power

AES Corp. entered into two renewable energy power purchase agreement (PPAs) with Amazon. AES Corp. will supply renewable energy in California Independent System Operator (CAISO) and source it from its combined portfolio of projects. Fluence has been contracted by AES to supply energy storage solutions for one project.

These projects help Amazon stay on path to power its global operations with 100% renewable energy by 2025 – five years ahead of its original 2030 target – and reach net zero carbon by 2040.

“AES is proud to support Amazon’s bold actions to power its business operations, including its AWS data centers, with 100% renewable energy,” says Andrés Gluski, AES’ president and CEO. “Together with Amazon, we’re showing how customized energy solutions and innovative thinking can help organizations of all kinds to decarbonize their operations and the grid.”
