AES Corp. says it completed 3.5 GW of renewables projects in 2023, nearly doubling the capacity constructed compared to the previous year.

“This construction milestone represents a new record and a growth rate of nearly 100% over 2022,” says Andrés Gluski, AES president and CEO. “Including these newly added projects, AES’ portfolio of renewables now reaches 18.4 GW.”

Of the 3.5 GW of projects that AES completed, 1.6 GW are solar, 1.3 GW are wind and 0.6 GW are energy storage.
