MilliporeSigma, Akamai Technologies, Inc., Synopsys, and Uber signed power purchase agreements with Enel Green Power for the energy produced by a 111 MW portion of the Azure Sky wind project located in Texas.
Enel said that, "The aggregation deal, a model which enables companies with smaller and more distributed energy needs to combine their renewable energy demand to collaboratively purchase renewable energy, is among the largest aggregation deals in the world."
MilliporeSigma, the life science business of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, will purchase the energy generated by a 68 MW portion of the Azure Sky wind project
Akamai, a platform for securing and delivering digital experiences, plans to purchase the renewable energy generated by an 18 MW portion of the project
Synopsys a provider of chip design, verification, IP integration, as well as software security and quality testing, will purchase the energy generated by a 15 MW portion of the project
Uber will purchase the energy generated by a 10 MW portion of the Azure Sky wind + storage project
The four companies were supported on the aggregation deals by Sustainability Roundtable Inc's Net Zero Consortium for Buyers,
The wind energy purchased by the four companies from the 111 MW portion of the Azure Sky project is expected to generate around 430,000 MWh each year
Located west of the Dallas-Fort Worth area in Throckmorton County, TX, the Azure Sky wind + storage project includes a 350 MW wind project paired with approximately 137 MW [137 MWdc, which will inject up to 120 MWac peak power into the grid] of battery storage and is expected to be operational in the first-half of 2022. In addition to the four companies under the aggregation deal, Enel will also sell the electricity produced by a 100 MW portion of the Azure wind project to Kellogg Company.
