MathWorks Begins VPPA

MathWorks signed a 12-year VPPA for an 11-megawatt portion of Enel North America's 25 Mile Creek wind project in Ellis County, Oklahoma. 

Through the agreement, MathWorks will purchase approximately 50,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of wind electricity and the associated renewable energy certificates (RECs) annually, equivalent to the power needs of its two main campuses in Massachusetts and six field offices in the US. 

The deal will help MathWorks become carbon neutral by 2023 by addressing 100% of the company's Scope 2 emissions in the U.S.

The 25 Mile Creek wind project is Enel's 12th wind farm in Oklahoma. The 250 MW wind project is projected to generate over 1,100 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of clean electricity annually.

"Our mission has always included a focus on environmental sustainability, so we're proud to announce our partnership with Enel to address all of our Scope 2 emissions," said Jack Little, co-founder and CEO of MathWorks in a statement. "As we accelerate the pace of engineering and science, we hope this power purchase agreement serves as a model for other companies looking for ways to make their operations more sustainable and affordable, while also increasing overall demand for renewable electricity and speeding the deployment of renewable energy projects."

MathWorks has made significant progress toward reducing its carbon footprint through several initiatives, including adopting renewable energy, continuously improving building efficiency, supporting carbon removal projects, implementing EV chargers on-site, funding complimentary bike share programs for staff members, and participating in recycling and reforestation programs.
