Shell and Eneco are going to deliver wind power to the American Web Store Amazon. The energy will come from the wind farm CrossWind which is being built off the Dutch coast.
From 2024 onwards, Shell and Eneco will supply 380 megawatts of energy to Amazon each year, which is good for supplying about half a million households with electricity. Amazon has a goal to run fully on renewable energy by 2025 and to be completely emissions-free by 2040.
Green electricity will be used for Amazon’s Web Services, among others. Shell and Amazon signed an agreement last year on the use of sustainable kerosene for cargo aircraft from the US company operating worldwide.
