The three projects will become operational in 2023.

They were announced as part of 3.5 GW of new renewable energy projects around the world.

The retail giant’s latest push into renewable energy includes utility-scale solar PV installations in the United States, Spain and France, some with large-scale battery storage, and solar installations on rooftops in Australia, Canada, India and Japan.

Given the growth of our business and our mission to run 100% of Amazon’s operations on renewable energy, we are not going to hold back on our investments in renewable energy.

Andy Jassy, ​​CEO of Amazon.

Amazon says it is on track to power all of its operations with renewable energy by 2025. It now has a renewable energy portfolio of 15.7 GW in 19 countries.

Amazon continues to be a leader in the rapid growth of renewable energy projects here in the United States. This increasingly includes hybrid projects that combine energy storage with renewable energy generation, unlocking the ability to use clean, reliable energy at all hours of the day.
