Electricity is essential for Amazon's offices, fulfillment centers, and Amazon Web Services (AWS) data centers, which serve millions of customers around the world. the projects are part of amazon's plan to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2040. By 2025, the company hopes to cover 100% of its electricity needs through renewable energy sources. This goal was originally set for 2030.

The mentioned 26 power plant projects are being implemented in Australia, France, Germany, Italy, South Africa, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States. In total, the company has 127 renewable energy projects around the world, including 59 that use wind and solar energy.
