When Big Tech met Big Oil...

A really interesting signal from both Amazon and Shell. Amazon will buy renewable electricity from a subsidy-free offshore wind farm being constructed off the coast of Holland.

Shell will benefit commercially from the sale of renewable electricity and both Shell and Amazon will meet their sustainability and emission reduction targets...

Could be the start of Big Oil decarbonising Big Tech?

I would be interested in other thoughts on this??

Is this going directly to an Amazon facility, or are is Amazon just paying Shell for the economic generation of this power that will then go to the general grid as well?
