Amazon to promote two large solar plants in Navarra


The combined renewable capacity of the two plants will reach 72 MW. These projects are part of twelve new off-site renewable energy facilities that Amazon plans to develop in Spain, including four wind farms and eight solar plants, with a combined total capacity of 596 MW.

According to the multinational, these energy agreements bring Amazon’s renewable capacity in Spain to more than 2.9 GW, distributed among 79 projects: 49 off-site facilities (nine wind farms and 40 photovoltaic plants) and thirty solar rooftops on its buildings. The plants in the Autonomous Community of Navarre will have a combined capacity of 72 MW.

On the other hand, Amazon reaffirms its position as the largest corporate buyer of renewable energy in Spain. Mariangela Marseglia, its vice president and general manager for Spain, Italy and Portugal, highlighted that the company’s solar and wind projects not only power its operations, but also provide clean energy to the grid and support the economic growth of local communities. Marseglia added that Amazon is on track to reach 100 per cent renewable energy for its global operations by 2025, having already reached 90 per cent by 2022.

In 2023, Amazon launched more than a hundred solar and wind energy projects, cementing its position as the world’s largest corporate buyer of renewable energy for the fourth year in a row. The company currently has more than 500 renewable energy projects around the world, which will have a total production capacity of more than 77,000 GWh per year when operational. These projects are crucial to powering its logistics centres, Amazon Web Services (AWS) data centres, corporate offices and physical shops, serving millions of customers globally.
