The energy company has made significant investments in the development of onshore wind farms.
It was Amazon’s first operating renewable energy initiative in the United Kingdom, according to the company. “Amazon is on track to powering our businesses with 100 percent renewable energy by 2025, five years ahead of plan,” stated UK manager John Boumphrey. Investing in clean energy and striving to improve efficiency across all of our operations is just one of the numerous steps we’re taking to meet our goal of being carbon-neutral by 2040 as part of The Climate Pledge.” “We need decisive action to tackle the climate emergency,” Net Zero and Energy Secretary Michael Matheson said during a visit to the Kype Muir Wind Farm in South Lanarkshire. Onshore wind is one of the most cost-effective kinds of large-scale power generation, and it will play a critical role in Scotland’s future energy mix as we move toward a net-zero economy. Separately, the Scottish government has stated that it strongly supports the upgrade of existing wind farms with more modern turbines as part of ambitions to increase onshore wind power by 2030.
