Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Last Monday, April 8th, Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced three new projects. These projects are set to achieve 100% renewable energy for its global infrastructure. These projects will take place in Ireland, Sweden and in the United States. The projects will deliver wind-generated energy that will total over 229 megawatts (MW) of power, with the expected generation of over 670,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of renewable energy annually.

Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Amazon Web Services is a subsidiary of Amazon. The company provides on-demand cloud computing platforms to individuals, companies and governments, on a metered pay-as-you-go basis. Netflix, Samsung, Philips and Expedia are amongst the companies using Amazon Web Services.

AWS' vice president of global infrastructure and customer support, Peter DeSantis, is convinced that each of these projects will bring the company closer to their long-term commitment to using 100% renewable energy to power their global AWS infrastructure. According to DeSantis, AWS expects to launch more similar projects in 2019 as they continue for the reason that they want to power all global infrastructure with renewable energy.

Amazon Shipment Zero

The move marks a following green initiative led by Amazon. Amazon recently announced Shipment Zero. Shipment Zero aims to make all Amazon shipments net zero carbon, with 50% of all shipments net zero by 2030.
