Amazon has signed a 159MW power purchase agreement at Iberdrola’s 1.4GW East Anglia 3 offshore wind project in the UK.

East Anglia 3 is set to be made up of 95 Siemens Gamesa turbines and commissioning is due in 2026.

In addition to the PPA, the companies said they are partnering on an initiative called ‘Journey to Cloud’, which will enable Iberdrola to move more of its operations to the cloud. For example, Iberdrola said this would help it halve the time taken to run complex climate simulations and take advantage of Amazon’s artificial intelligence services.

Ignacio Galán, president at Iberdrola, said: “Agreements like this one, which joins those already signed by Iberdrola and Amazon on both sides of the Atlantic, demonstrate that electrification is the best path towards energy autonomy, the creation of local jobs and the improvement of the environment. And digitalisation will, without a doubt, be one of the main vectors of demand growth in the next years.”
