Amazon purchased record amount of clean energy in 2022

Amazon's renewable energy portfolio now totals more than 20 GW and will generate enough clean energy to power 5.3 million homes in the U.S. Its renewable energy purchases last year brought it closer to powering its operations with 100% renewable energy by 2025.

Amazon has announced that in 2022 it grew its renewable energy capacity by 8.3 gigawatts through 133 new projects in 11 countries bringing its total portfolio to more than 20 GW. The company thus supports 401 renewable energy projects in 22 countries, including 164 wind and solar farms, and 237 rooftop solar projects on Amazon facilities. The company’s renewable energy purchases continue to add new wind and solar projects on the grids that power Amazon’s operations, including Amazon Web Services (AWS) data centers, Amazon fulfillment centers, and physical stores around the world.

Amazon also sets a new corporate record for the most renewable energy announced by a single company in one year. These purchases also bring Amazon closer to powering its operations with 100% renewable energy by 2025 - five years ahead of its original 2030 target.

“As we continue to launch new renewable energy projects around the world, we’re pleased to be on track to power our operations with 100% renewable energy, five years ahead of our original target. With 133 projects in 11 countries announced in 2022, Amazon had another record year,” said Adam Selipsky, CEO of AWS. “These projects highlight the diversity of our renewable energy sources and showcase our ability to bring new technologies to new markets and further reduce the impacts of climate change.”
