Akamai, MilliporeSigma, Synopsys and Uber
Four global leaders coming together for sustainability
Akamai, MilliporeSigma, Synopsys and Uber signed power purchase agreements with Enel Green Power for the total energy output of a 111 MW portion of the Azure Sky Wind project. This aggregation deal, a model which enables companies with smaller and more distributed energy needs to combine their renewable energy demand to collaboratively purchase renewable energy, is among one of the largest aggregations in the world.
Azure Sky wind + storage will provide the Kellogg Company with enough renewable energy to meet the electricity needs of 50% of its manufacturing operations globally by 2022. The 100 MW Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) will help the company reach its goal of using 100% renewable energy by 2050. Kellogg's renewable electricity purchase will avoid over 250,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions each year.
HP Hood signed a 12-year virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) to purchase 90 GWh of wind energy each year from the Azure Sky wind + storage project. The U.S. dairy company will purchase the electricity delivered to the grid by a 25 MW portion of the project. The energy purchased is equivalent to 33% of the electricity used across all 13 of its owned manufacturing facilities in 2020 and will support its commitment to effect positive environmental change throughout its operations and energy supply.
Enel Green Power and lululemon signed a 15 MW virtual purchase agreement for renewable energy from the Azure Sky wind + storage project. The energy purchased is equivalent to the electricity needed to power 100% of lululemon’s direct operations in North America, including 380 stores, 6 offices and 5 distribution centers, and helps the athletic apparel company achieve its climate change goals around carbon reduction.
