U.S. e-commerce group Amazon has announced its first wind-solar hybrid projects with Vibrant Energy. The two projects aggregating to 300 MW of renewable energy capacity will be based in the Indian states of Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka.
Once operational, these projects are expected to generate 1,163 GWh of clean energy, which is the equivalent amount of electricity needed to power 380,000 average-sized households in New Delhi each year, stated the company.
The two new projects represent Amazon‘s first wind-solar hybrid projects globally.
Combined with three solar farms in Rajasthan, Amazon now has five utility-scale renewable energy projects in India, representing more than 720 MW of renewable energy capacity.
Amazon targets net-zero carbon across its business by 2040 and is on a path to powering its operations globally with 100% renewable energy by 2025.
Vibrant Energy Holdings (Vibrant) is a majority-owned subsidiary of Blue Leaf Energy Asia, which is a portfolio company indirectly invested in by Macquarie’s Green Investment Group (GIG) and operating on a standalone basis.
