bp and Amazon have agreed to extend their longstanding relationship, with bp to supply additional renewable energy to power Amazon’s operations, and Amazon Web Services enabling the acceleration of bp’s programme to digitise its infrastructure and operations. bp sees building relationships with major corporate partners such as Amazon as a key part of its strategy of transforming into an integrated energy company and to delivering its ambition of becoming a net zero company by 2050 or sooner and helping the world get to net zero.
In a new series of clean power agreements, bp has agreed to more than triple the renewable power that it will supply Amazon in Europe. bp will supply Amazon with an additional 404MW of wind power in Europe, starting in 2022 - 275MW sourced from a new wind project in Sweden and 129MW from two new wind projects in Scotland. This is in addition to the companies’ December 2019 agreement for bp to supply AWS in Europe with around 170MW of renewable power.
Building on their longstanding relationship, in December 2019 bp agreed to migrate over 900 key applications hosted in its European mega data centres to the AWS cloud.
