  • The five-year agreement outlines plans for the development of over 10.5 gigawatts of new renewable energy capacity, almost eight times larger than the largest single corporate PPA ever signed.

Brookfield Asset Management together with Brookfield Renewable and Microsoft have signed a global renewable energy framework agreement (“the agreement”) to contribute to Microsoft’s goal of having 100% of its electricity consumption, 100% of the time, matched by zero carbon energy purchases by 2030.

The agreement provides a pathway for Brookfield to deliver over 10.5 gigawatts of new renewable energy capacity between 2026 and 2030 in the U.S. and Europe. The agreement includes the potential to increase its scope to deliver additional renewable energy capacity within the U.S. and Europe, and beyond to Asia-Pacific, India, and Latin America, and provides an incentive for Brookfield to build a large portfolio of new renewable energy projects over the coming years.

“Microsoft wants to use our influence and purchasing power to create lasting positive impact for all electricity consumers. This collaboration with Brookfield drives the innovative development of more diverse energy grids globally and contributes to delivering our goal of achieving 100% of our electricity consumption, 100% of the time, matched by zero carbon energy purchases by 2030,” said Adrian Anderson, General Manager of Renewables, Carbon Free Energy, and Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR).
