With a target of covering 100% of its power needs with renewable energy by 2025, Microsoft has committed to purchase renewable energy. In the locations where it conducts business internationally, Microsoft is expanding its sustainability initiatives to assist domestic manufacture of green energy equipment
Hanwha Solutions owns Qcells, a worldwide solar leader located in Seoul.
Microsoft and Qcells have collaborated to create solar project development. Panels and engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services are provided as part of the collaboration to specific solar projects that Microsoft has contracted through power purchase agreements (PPAs).
By 2030, Microsoft has pledged to have a net zero carbon footprint, and this agreement will help build a reliable supply chain for building new renewable generation capacity .
With a target of covering 100% of its power needs with renewable energy by 2025, Microsoft has committed to purchase renewable energy. In the locations where it conducts business internationally, Microsoft is expanding its sustainability initiatives to assist domestic manufacture of green energy equipment.
To provide additional sustainable energy to the grid, Microsoft is supporting Qcells’ solar products, including those made in the country. The only solar Company in the US with a full solar supply chain and one-stop shop for sustainable energy solutions is Qcells.
It is anticipated that Qcells’ transformation into a one-stop shop for sustainable energy solutions would accelerate with the rising demand for American-made solar goods. Qcells aims to become a major developer of solar and other sustainable energy solutions, including energy storage systems, as it is the only firm in the U.S. with a full solar supply chain. Qcells will continue to offer entirely clean energy solutions and take the lead in the international battle against climate change by fusing its expanding EPC knowledge with a smart energy management system.
In order to deploy renewable energy on a large scale, this cooperation is the first time a corporation that purchases electricity works directly with a solar supplier. The two businesses’ shared goals to diversify the world’s energy supply chain, actively drive the creation of more dependable energy supply chains both domestically and abroad, and lower carbon emissions are the foundation of the new partnership.
