Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) is looking to expand its renewable energy projects to target 50,000 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of green energy, an amount that can power 4.6 million US homes annually. 

The 71 new renewable projects will be spread across the globe, including the first renewable project in South America, a solar farm in Brazil. Further, solar farms in India and Poland will be built.

Adam Selipsky, CEO of Amazon Web Services, commented on the goal of reaching 100% renewable energy across the entire business. 

“We are bringing new wind and solar projects online to power our offices, fulfillment centers, data centers, and stores, which collectively serve millions of customers globally, and we are on a path to reach 100% renewable energy across our entire business by 2025.”

Achievable goal

At the moment, the firm has 379 renewable projects across 21 countries, including 154 wind and solar farms, supplemented with 225 rooftop solar projects, creating a total of 18.5 GW of renewable energy. 

So far, Amazon has managed to reach 85% renewable energy across its businesses; therefore, the goal of 100% renewables by 2025 seems plausible.
