Amazon Signs PPA with ENGIE, Increasing Moray West Output Share


Amazon has signed a CPPA with ENGIE, increasing its share of output from Ocean Winds’ Moray West offshore wind farm in Scotland to a total of 473 MW when the site is expected to become operational later this year. 

Located in Scotland’s Moray Firth, the 882 MW wind farm is currently under construction. 

Amazon announced 39 new renewable projects across Europe last year, totaling more than 1 GW. Last year as well, ENGIE added more than 1 GW of clean energy capacity, raising the company’s CPPA portfolio to 7.3 GW.

“Moray West reflects our strategy to accelerate the transition towards a carbon-neutral world, through investing in renewable generation technologies,” says ENGIE’s Paulo Almirante.

“Furthermore, the innovative character of this CPPA shows that it is possible to create, together with Amazon, the conditions to achieve the UK objectives of renewables deployment and net zero economy. This deal strengthens ENGIE’s leadership position for CPPAs, through which ENGIE has sold a substantial capacity of renewable electricity generated by its wind and solar assets.”
