Brookfield Asset Management, a global renewables investor, and Amazon Web Service (AWS) have signed a collaboration deal under which Brookfield will use AWS Cloud solution to accelerate its digital transformation and, in return, through its arm Brookfield Renewable, provide clean energy capacity to power Amazon’s operations on three continents.
Brookfield Renewable will provide 601.6 MW of clean wind and solar energy capacity to power Amazon’s operations in Europe, North America, and India. In total, these projects are expected to generate 1,370 GWh, which is enough to power more than 120,000 U.S. homes per year.
Brookfield Asset Management will use AWS analytics, containers, Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, and storage capabilities, as well as AWS extensive partner network, to modernize its technology infrastructure, optimize operations, and boost innovation. AWS, as a preferred cloud provider, will help it gain business insights, improve workplace safety, and automate hydroelectric, wind, and solar operations
The collaboration keeps Amazon on track to power its operations with 100% renewable energy by 2025, five years ahead of its original 2030 commitment, and to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2040.
The committed 601.6 MW of power purchase agreements (PPAs) will provide electricity to seven Amazon projects—three in the United States (in Arkansas, Illinois, and Mississippi), three in Europe (in Spain, Northern Ireland, and Italy), and one of Amazon’s first projects in India.
