MilliporeSigma, Akamai, Synopsys and Uber join forces for the Wind Energy Deal
Renewables | 18 March 2021

With support from the Sustainability Roundtable Inc's Net Zero Consortium for Buyers, MilliporeSigma, Akamai Technologies, Inc. (Akamai), Synopsys and Uber have signed power purchase agreements (PPAs) with Enel Green Power for the energy produced by a 111 MW part of the Azure Sky wind project which is situated in Texas, US. The aggregation deal, a model which empowers companies with more modest and more distributed energy needs to join renewable energy demand to collaboratively purchase renewable energy, is among the largest aggregation deals on the planet.

"This aggregation deal shows a remarkable shift in the renewable energy purchasing market to give businesses with unobtrusive energy demand, yet ambitious renewable energy goals, the chance to procure renewable energy in a cost-effective manner," said Georgios Papadimitriou, Head of Enel Green Power in the US and Canada. "As more companies of all sizes hope to power their operations with clean energy, Enel is particularly positioned to empower that transition, by creating customized solutions to meet the energy needs, of all buyers."

MilliporeSigma, a life science business of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, will buy the energy produced by a 68 MW part of the Azure Sky wind project to support the organization towards its objective of climate neutrality by 2040.

Akamai, an insightful platform for securing and delivering digital experiences, is planning to purchase the renewable energy produced by 18 MW portion of the project to help the organization's commitment to run its intelligent edge network as proficiently as could be possible, be aware of its power usage, and also to limit the negative environmental impacts of its worldwide operations.

Synopsys is at the front line of Smart Everything with portions of the world's most cutting-edge technologies for chip design, confirmation, IP integration, and software security and quality testing. The organization will buy the energy generated by a 15 MW bit of the venture to help its aspiring emissions reduction objective.

Uber, a worldwide mobility platform, will purchase the energy produced by a 10 MW portion of the Azure Sky wind and capacity project, helping the organization progress towards its worldwide commitment to turning into a zero-emission mobility platform by 2040. This project assists Uber with accomplishing its pledge to coordinate with all of its US offices with 100% renewable electricity by 2025 while growing to data centers and global locations by 2030.

The four companies were upheld on the aggregation deals by Sustainability Roundtable Inc's Net Zero Consortium for Buyers, a buyers' foundation dedicated to making corporate buyers favorable renewable energy transactions.

The wind energy purchased by the four organizations from the 111 MW part of the Azure Sky project is relied upon to produce around 430,000 MWh/yr, equivalent to the electricity utilized by roughly 40,000 average US homes yearly.

Situated at the west of the Dallas-Fort Worth area in Throckmorton County, Texas, the Azure Sky wind and storage project incorporates a 350 MW wind project combined with around 137 MW of battery stockpiling and is relied upon to be operational in 1H2022. Notwithstanding the four companies under the aggregation deal, Enel will likewise sell the electricity produced by a 100 MW portion of the Azure wind project to Kellogg Company.

The Azure Sky wind and storage project is the most recent illustration of Enel's commitment to invest resources in renewables plus storage hybrids in the US. Enel is right now developing a similar plant, the 284 MW Azure Sky solar and storage project, in an adjoining county, and a third hybrid project, 181 MW Lily solar and storage project, also in Texas.
