Amazon has added 3.4 gigawatts of new renewable power to its portfolio, taking its total capacity to 6.5 GW. 

The company claims that it has now overtaken Google as the largest corporate user of renewables. Amazon’s new wind and solar projects are distributed globally from Australia and South Africa to Sweden and the U.K.

The retail giant is aiming to power all its operations, from its offices and fulfillment centers to the data centers of its Amazon Web Services business, with renewables by 2030. It claims to be on track to hit that milestone by 2025, and it wants to hit the target of being net-zero carbon by 2040.
