By 2030, Google aims to be able to offer its services using only CO2-free energy, 24 hours a day. An important part of this is that the data centres and offices run on sustainable energy. Thus the tech company signed another cPPA with Eneco in the Netherlands. The clean power for the data center in Eemshaven will be supplied by the Fryslân and Kroningswind wind farms, making it run on 80% sustainably generated energy in 2024. Google will receive 288 GWh per year from Fryslân wind farm with a capacity of 73.5 MW. Kroningswind will supply 227 GWh annually with a capacity of 79.8 MW. 

Martijn Bertisen, VP Google Nederland: “Sustainability has been one of Google's core values ??since its inception. Since then, we have been at the forefront of achieving a carbon-free future for over a decade. The digital and green transformation go hand in hand. Digital solutions, such as working from home or smart thermostats, play an important facilitating role for at least 20-25% of the reductions needed to achieve a net-zero economy in Europe. Our ambition to run completely on carbon-free energy by 2030, wherever and whenever in the world, will require intensive cooperation with major energy companies such as Eneco, who are jointly committed to long-term sustainable energy goals.” 

Kees-Jan Rameau, COO Integrated Energy at Eneco: “Google is committed to offering all its services energy-neutral. That is a valuable goal that Eneco is happy to contribute to by supplying sustainable energy, together with the Fryslân and Kroningswind wind farms. We are accelerating the energy transition with large impactful companies such as Google, which actively contribute to making energy systems more sustainable.”
