AES x Google
Google announced a world-leading goal to operate on 100% carbon-free energy by 2030 and set this goal knowing that a 24/7 carbon-free energy solution didn’t yet exist. AES and Google partnered together to develop a world-leading 24/7 carbon-free energy solution where we will supply Google’s data centers with time-matched carbon-free energy through a custom mix of solar, wind, hydropower and battery energy storage resources.
What is 24/7 carbon-free energy and why do we need it?
70% of the world’s internet traffic passes through data centers located in Virginia, and together with Microsoft, we’re making the internet greener. We partnered together to provide Microsoft with around-the-clock renewable energy to power its Virginia-based data centers.
