These projects help Amazon stay on path to power its global operations with 100% renewable energy by 2025 – five years ahead of its original 2030 target – and reach net zero carbon by 2040. Amazon is the largest corporate buyer of renewable energy.

"AES is proud to support Amazon's bold actions to power its business operations, including its AWS data centers, with 100% renewable energy," said Andrés Gluski, AES President and CEO. "Together with Amazon, we're showing how customized energy solutions and innovative thinking can help organizations of all kinds to decarbonize their operations and the grid."

Through collaboration with its customers to help meet their unique energy commitments and outcomes, AES signed nearly 5 GW of new PPAs globally in 2021 and was ranked by BNEF as the top developer selling clean energy to corporations through PPAs. 

*450 MW solar and 225 MW, 4-hour duration energy storage additions were incorporated as part of AES' 5 GW of new PPAs in 2021.
