Amazon has added 37 new renewable energy projects to its portfolio, including 26 new utility-scale solar projects, two of which will be hybrid solar-plus-storage. 

The technology and logistics giant is adding a total of 3.5GW to its 12.2GW portfolio of renewable energy.

The company has also stepped up its investments in colocated solar-storage projects with two new hybrid facilities in Arizona and California. The project in Arizona will have 300MW of solar PV paired with 150MW of battery storage while the California project will have pair 150MW of solar PV with 75MW of battery storage.

The two newest projects will double Amazon’s current solar PV paired with energy storage capacity from 220MW to 445MW.

Andy Jassy, CEO of Amazon, said: “We now have 310 wind and solar projects across 19 countries, and are working hard to reach our goal of powering 100% of our business on renewable energy by 2025—five years ahead of our original target of 2030.”
