    Amazon announces its first solar farm in Castilla y León


    September 22, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras

     

      Amazon announced Wednesday 71 new renewable energy projects around the world, including two in Spain: a wind farm in Aragon and a solar farm in Castilla y Leon.

      The new wind farm in Aragon will have 36.96 MW of renewable capacity and the solar farm in Castilla y Leon, 28.6 MW. The latter will become the first renewable energy project announced by Amazon in this autonomous community, while the new wind farm in Aragon joins the three projects (a solar farm and two wind farms) that the company had previously announced in this autonomous community.

      In total, the four projects will add up to a combined renewable capacity of 184.56 MW.

      With the commissioning of the two new projects announced for Spain on Wednesday, Amazon will surpass 1.5 GW of renewable capacity in this country, with a total of 16 renewable energy projects (13 solar farms and three wind farms). Once fully operational, these projects will generate renewable energy equivalent to the annual consumption of about 850,000 Spanish households.

      With the 71 new plants announced on Wednesday, Amazon will surpass 100 renewable energy projects in Europe. In addition, it has 202 solar and wind projects in the United States, 57 in the Asia-Pacific region and one in South America. When they all come online, they will generate 50,000 Gigawatt hours (GWh) of renewable energy, equivalent to the annual consumption of 13.4 million European households.

      Among the new projects announced are the company's first in South America, to be located in Brazil, and its first solar plants in India and Poland.

      "We are launching new wind and solar projects to power our offices, logistics centers, data centers and stores, which serve millions of customers around the world, and we are on track to reach 100% renewable energy across our business by 2025," said Adam Selipsky, CEO of Amazon Web Services.

      "Globally, countries are working to accelerate the transition to a zero-emissions economy. Continued investments like ours can help accelerate this transition as we all work together to mitigate the effects of climate change," he highlighted.
