Google Signs 12-year CPPA for Wind Power in Scotland
Google signed a 12-year corporate power purchase agreement (CPPA) for 100 MW of power from the Moray West offshore wind development.
The agreement calls for ENGIE to provide Google with more than 5 TWh of green power from the nearly 900 MW offshore wind farm in Scotland, which is set to begin generating power in 2025. Moray West is part of a portfolio being developed by Ocean Winds, a 50/50 joint venture owned by EDPR Renewables and ENGIE.
“People across the UK and Europe are increasingly worried about climate change and energy security. We share that concern and believe technology is an important part of the solution - both by reducing our own emissions, and by helping others to reduce their own” said Matt BRITTIN, President of Google EMEA, in a statement, adding: “This new investment in UK renewable energy brings us one step closer to reaching our goal of operating entirely on carbon-free energy by 2030, and means that, in the UK, we’ll be running on at or near 90% carbon-free energy in 2025.”
The statement notes that this new corporate PPA with Google supports both Google's 24/7 carbon-free energy ambition and ENGIE’s clean energy strategy.
