Seattle USA headquartered multinational conglomerate technology company Amazon announced five new renewable energy projects in China, Australia and the US that further support Amazon’s commitment to reach 80% renewable energy by 2024 and 100% renewable energy by 2030, potentially as early as 2025, as well as to reach net zero carbon by 2040.

Amazon’s first renewable energy project in China is a 100 megawatt solar project in Shandong. Amazon’s second renewable energy project in Australia is a 105 MW solar project in New South Wales. Amazon’s newest renewable energy projects in the US include two new projects in Ohio, a 200 MW solar project and an 80 MW solar project. Additionally, a new 130 MW solar project in Virginia brings the total number of renewable energy projects in the Commonwealth to 12. Once enabled, these three US based projects have the capacity to power the equivalent of 69,000 average US homes each year.

When complete, the five new Amazon renewable energy projects totaling 615 MW of installed capacity will supply approximately 1.2 million MWh of additional renewable energy to the company’s fulfillment network and Amazon Web Services data centers, which power Amazon and millions of customers globally.

To date, Amazon has announced 31 utility-scale wind and solar renewable energy projects and 60 solar rooftops on fulfillment centers and sort centers around the globe. Together, these projects totaling over 2,900 MW of capacity will deliver more than 7.6 million MWh of renewable energy annually, enough to power 680,000 US homes.
