In December 2020, Amazon and ACCIONA announced today two different agreements to cooperate in reaching decarbonization goals and accelerating innovation. ACCIONA will provide clean energy to Amazon in the United States with the electrical production corresponding to 641MW, helping meet Amazon’s company-wide goal to use 100% renewable energy by 2030 and achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2040. Additionally, Amazon Web Services (AWS) will become ACCIONA’s ‘preferred cloud provider’ to gain operational efficiencies, unlock data-driven insights and accelerate its pace of innovation.
To help power Amazon’s operations with a long-term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), ACCIONA will build four new photovoltaic plants in Illinois, Kentucky and Ohio, with a total capacity of 889MWp. ACCIONA will invest close to US$1 billion (€835 million) over the next four years to develop these new projects.
In addition, as part of its digital transformation project, ACCIONA has chosen AWS as its ‘preferred cloud provider’ to initiate its shift towards the “Cloud First” paradigm. For that purpose, ACCIONA will work with AWS in two main areas. The company will migrate eight business-critical enterprise IT applications to the AWS cloud, including three SAP modules, as well as its enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, which integrates accounting, finance, human resources, knowledge management, and intranet applications. To improve its data governance and to develop a new data architecture, ACCIONA will also build a data lake on AWS with a new taxonomy, to continue the path to a real data-driven company.
