Microsoft announced a new wind energy agreement in the Netherlands with Dutch sustainable energy company and wind farm developer Eneco.
Eneco will provide Microsoft’s datacenters with green power for 15 years starting in 2022. This is Microsoft’s second purchase of wind energy in the Netherlands in a year, which brings its total wind energy purchases to 270 MW in the Netherlands — one of the largest corporate renewable energy portfolios in the country.
Digital transformation and smart energy solutions
The power purchase agreement is a next step in the ongoing partnership between Eneco and Microsoft. In 2018, Eneco selected Microsoft as its preferred partner for cloud services, signing a three-year deal with Microsoft Azure, which enables Eneco to achieve the company’s goals and ambitions in the area of digital transformation.
