Amazon confirms Cork as site of latest 23MW wind farm project

Amazon Continues Investments in Renewable Energy

Coming to the U.S, Virginia's farm would be Amazon's the seventh plant to be constructed.

Today, Amazon has announced two more such plans, which will be its 65th and 67th renewable energy-related projects.

The company now has 66 renewables schemes globally, including 51 solar rooftop arrays, with the aim of using 100% renewable energy across its global operations. He is looking forward to "continuing to work with AWS as we strive to make Ireland a leader in the renewable energy space".

We don't know exactly when Amazon will finish its latest projects, but it wants to see both energy farms begin producing power sometime in 2020; which could hint at construction being completed in late 2019.

In Cork, Ireland, Amazon will build a 23.2-MW wind farm with an estimated annual production of 68,000 MWh of electricity.

The farm will have 45MW of renewable capacity and will generate 100,000MWh every year.

Richard Bruton, Ireland's Minister for Communications, Climate Action, and Environment, to have applauded the initiative taken by Amazon.

Virginia Senator Mark R. Warner said that it would not only produce a clean source of energy, Amazon would also help in creating new jobs in rural areas as well. Some of the programs that have set the status of Amazon as one of the torchbearers of sustainability include Frustration-Free Packaging, Ships in Own Container, Shipment Zero, Investments in the circular economy with the Closed Loop Fund, and others.

Amazon is guided by four principles: customer obsession rather than competitor focus, passion for invention, commitment to operational excellence, and long-term thinking.
