    AES x Google

    Google announced a world-leading goal to operate on 100% carbon-free energy by 2030 and set this goal knowing that a 24/7 carbon-free energy solution didn’t yet exist. AES and Google partnered together to develop a world-leading 24/7 carbon-free energy solution where we will supply Google’s data centers with time-matched carbon-free energy through a custom mix of solar, wind, hydropower and battery energy storage resources.
