Iberdrola and Amazon announce a new global collaboration to support the development of large-scale renewable energy projects. Iberdrola and Amazon.com Inc. have agreed to collaborate on new offshore wind capacity by signing power purchase agreements (PPA) for projects in Europe, the U.S. and Asia-Pacific.

Two of Iberdrola’s offshore windfarms in Germany (Baltic Eagle and Windanker) aim to provide Amazon with 1.1 TWh of energy each year, which is equivalent to the annual electricity needs of more than 314,0001 European homes.

Baltic Eagle is located in the Baltic Sea, north of the island of Rügen and should have a total capacity of 476 MW when completed in 2024. Windanker, also located in the Baltic Sea, should have 300 MW of installed capacity and will be completed in 2026. The projects form part of Iberdrola’s Baltic Hub, which should have a total capacity of 1,100 MW, making it one of the largest offshore wind clusters in the region.

Aitor Moso, Director of Iberdrola’s Retail Business commented: “The challenge of electrifying our energy system to increase our autonomy and reduce emissions requires partnerships between leaders like Iberdrola and Amazon. The agreement today, combining sun, wind, and cloud, will enable new renewable generation capacity around the world and accelerate the digital revolution in the energy sector."
