Amazon, Petronas to collaborate on clean energy growth 

Share

Malaysian oil and gas group Petronas and Amazon are collaborating in efforts to intensify their sustainability and decarbonization initiatives. 

Amazon intends to evaluate Petronas’ low-carbon and alternative fuel solutions for potential integration in diverse areas such as mobility, stationary power applications, and carbon management. 

Petronas arm Gentari will support the decarbonization of Amazon’s India transportation network by working with third-party delivery service partners to electrify their transport vehicles further. Amazon has committed to deploying 10,000 electric vehicles (EVs) in its India delivery fleet by 2025. The collaboration will also involve Gentari providing electric vehicles and accompanying fleet management services for Amazon’s third-party delivery service partners. The move supports Amazon’s commitment to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2040.

Petronas, together with Amazon Web Services (AWS), will explore the design and construction of a state-of-the-art plant of the future that incorporates cutting-edge technology, robotics, and automation solutions similar to those used in Amazon warehouses and facilities. This will scale Petronas’ existing research and development efforts for the potential production of microalgae oil as feedstock for sustainable aviation fuel. 

Gentari is a clean energy solutions company wholly owned by Petronas that delivers renewable energy, hydrogen, and green mobility solutions.
