TotalEnergies and Amazon announced today a new collaboration agreement aimed at advancing Amazon’s renewable energy strategy and TotalEnergies’ digitization transformation.
The companies have entered into power purchase agreements (PPAs) under which TotalEnergies will provide 474 MW of renewable energy capacity to power Amazon’s operations in the US and Canada. TotalEnergies and Amazon anticipate expanding their cooperation in the Middle East and Asia Pacific as well.
The new collaboration will help enable Amazon to achieve its sustainability goals, including reaching net zero emissions by 2040, and powering 100% of company activities with renewable energy by 2025, five years ahead of its original 2030 goal. Amazon is currently the largest corporate buyer of renewable energy in the world, with total renewable energy investments to reaching 10 GW of electricity production capacity.
Stéphane Michel, President Gas, Renewables & Power at TotalEnergies, said:
“TotalEnergies is deeply committed to reducing the carbon emissions of its operations and supporting its customers to do the same around the world. By signing this agreement, we are proud to enter into this key collaboration with Amazon and to accompany them on their journey to carbon neutrality.”
The collaboration will also see TotalEnergies accelerate its move to the cloud, utilizing Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a key cloud provider, advancing the digitization of the company’s operations and its digital innovation.
Kathrin Buvac, Vice President, AWS Strategic Industries, said:
“Working with TotalEnergies on innovative cloud technologies to drive reductions in carbon emissions and present new renewable energy sources is a tremendous opportunity. This collaboration will not only accelerate TotalEnergies’ migration to the cloud but also contribute toward Amazon’s commitment to power our operations with 100 percent renewable energy.”
