Microsoft announces largest corporate procurement of renewables

This huge PPA deal shows how corporates like Microsoft are leading the way in clean energy procurement. This shows a real commitment in line with their plans to procure all of their electricity from net-zero sources by 2030. This will be a huge task considering the sharp increase in electricity demand of energy intensive data centres supporting the adaption of AI. 

Businesses are under increasing pressure to decarbonise their supply chains and increase their ESG credentials. Solar can play a hugely important role in this either via on-site generation or PPAs. We're very proud to be supporting a number of clients who are helping businesses reach their carbon and ESG goals by installing renewables, energy storage and smart building technologies. 

If you'd like to hear more about the types of opportunities we're working on, please get in touch with me or one of our team. 

Microsoft has signed the largest-ever corporate power purchase agreement (PPA) for renewable energy, signing on for more than 10.5 GW of capacity in the United States and Europe. The projects are set to begin construction in 2026. BloombergNEF estimates that the portfolio will take over $11.5 billion to build. Microsoft and Brookfield said the deal is nearly eight times larger than any other single corporate renewable PPA.
