Amazon puts in an order for four new renewable energy projects

The retail giant says the new investments aim to help drive towards its commitment to reach 100% renewable energy by 2030

Amazon has announced four new renewable energy projects in Australia, Spain, Sweden and the US.

The retail giant says the new investments aim to help drive towards its commitment to reach 80% renewable energy by 2024 and 100% renewable energy by 2030 on the path to reach net zero emissions by 2040.

Amazon’s first renewable energy project in Australia is a 60MW solar project anticipated to come online in 2021 in northern New South Wales - it is expected to generate 142,000MWh of clean energy each year, equivalent to the annual electricity of almost 23,000 average Australian households.
