Google Signs PPA in Netherlands, Belgium
Google signed two power purchase agreements (PPAs) in Belgium and the Netherlands as part of the technology company’s goal to operate carbon-free energy by 2030.
The PPAs will add new clean energy to their national electricity grids in both countries and match the electricity consumed by Google’s operations in its offices and data centers, according to a statement.
The company’s operations in Belgium and The Netherlands will be at or near 80% carbon-free energy in 2024
In Belgium, Google will acquire 23.8 megawatts of renewable energy from Luminus, provided by four dedicated, new-to-the-grid onshore wind projects. This PPA will help keep the Belgium data centers and offices at or near 80% carbon-free energy in 2024.
In the Netherlands, the agreement with Eneco will enable the purchase of 153 megawatts of clean energy from near-shore, new-to-the-grid wind farms.
Google has signed more than 35 wind and solar agreements in Europe to purchase nearly 3 gigawatts of renewable power — the equivalent of installing more than 9 million solar panels.
