Wind Energy – Power Purchase
Google has signed its largest power purchase agreement (PPA) to date for supplies from offshore wind farms off the Netherlands.
Google has agreed to take 478MW of power from two new wind farms being developed by Crosswind and Ecowende, joint ventures between Shell and Dutch utility Eneco.
Google stated: “We’ve signed power purchase agreements with Shell and with Eneco, owners of the Crosswind & Ecowende joint ventures, to support 478 megawatts of carbon-free energy capacity with two new-to-the-grid offshore wind farms: HKN V and HKW VI.”
In addition, in Italy, Google has entered into its first long-term power purchase agreement to support a 47MW wind project being developed by Italian energy company ERG.
The tech company has also inked new Polish PPAs for 106MW of solar generation capacity with GoldenPeaks Capital and two new green energy deals in Belgium.
“With these power purchase agreements, we’re helping bring 11 new onshore wind farms, developed by Aspiravi and Luminus, to the grid for a total capacity of 84 megawatts,” Google stated.
