Amazon has announced five new renewable energy projects in China, Australia and the United States that further support Amazon’s commitment to reach 80 percent renewable energy by 2024 and 100 percent renewable energy by 2030 (and 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 (MW) solar project in Shandong. Once complete, the project is expected to generate 128,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of clean energy annually.
Amazon’s second renewable energy project in Australia is a 105 MW solar project in New South Wales. This project will have the capacity to generate 250,000 MWh of clean energy each year, which is enough to power the equivalent of 40,000 average Australian homes.
Amazon’s newest renewable energy projects in the United States 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 Vi
