Microsoft will power their datacenters in the Netherlands with green power for 15 years starting 2022. The tech company has signed a PPA with Dutch energy company Eneco to puchase 90MW from the Borssele III/IV Offshore Wind Project.

This is Microsoft’s second purchase of wind energy in the Netherlands in a year, which brings its total wind energy purchases to 270MW in the Netherlands – one of the largest corporate renewable energy portfolio in the country.

“Tech companies are facing the challenge to reduce their carbon footprint, mostly due to the vast energy consumption of their datacenters. A global frontrunner like Microsoft does not see this as a challenge, but as an opportunity to boost the energy transition. We are proud we can help them to switch to a sustainable, smart and clean energy supply in the Netherlands. As a result Microsoft is creating local opportunity, growth, and impact while enabling Eneco to continue to invest in large-scale renewable energy projects like Borssele III/IV”, says Hans Peters, Chief Customer Officer of Eneco.

It is Microsoft’s 14th renewable energy PPA, bringing the portfolio to more than 1.5 gigawatts.

“Eneco sets a great example of how we can use technology to accelerate clean energy growth locally, which is crucial to strengthen not only our own competitive advantage, but that of the Netherlands in a sustainable way. By joining forces, we are taking another step in driving the clean energy goals of the country and our global ambition of using technology to advance sustainability”, says Ernst-Jan Stigter, General Manager of Microsoft Netherlands.
