Amazon has announced it will add 2.7 gigawatts of clean energy through 71 new projects as part of its goal of using 100% renewable energy across its business by 2025.

The new projects include three large-scale plants in India with a total capacity of 420 megawatts, rooftop solar projects in France and Austria, a solar farm in Brazil, the first renewable energy project in South America and the first solar farm in Poland.

Amazon now operates 379 renewable energy projects in 21 countries, including 154 wind and solar farms and 225 rooftop solar projects with a total capacity of 18.5 gigawatt hours of renewable energy. Its total portfolio is expected to generate 50,000 gigawatt hours of clean energy, equivalent to supplying 4.6 million US households per year.

“We are bringing new wind and solar projects online to power our offices, fulfillment centers, data centers, and stores, which collectively serve millions of customers globally, and we are on a path to reach 100% renewable energy across our entire business by 2025,” said Adam Selipsky, CEO of Amazon Web Services.

Amazon backed Infinium announced plans to supply the online retailer with low carbon electrofuels to replace diesel in the company’s transport fleet.
