Read the blog here. AWS has announced a 4.8-hour tesla power storage battery driver in the U.S.-West region of northern California. They help bridge the gap between intermittent production, from sources such as wind, and the constant power needs of the data center. For more information, please see the Tesla press kit here. Five solar farms already announced by AWS are now in service in the Commonwealth of Virginia. With the Amazon Solar Farm US East, the six solar farms carry 260 megawatts of renewable energy on the grid. Solar energy – BP holds a 43% stake in Lightsource BP. Lightsource BP wants to play a decisive role in building the future of global energy supply by developing important solar capabilities around the world, and BP is working with Lightsource BP to strengthen its global presence. AWS and Dominion Virginia Power are teaming up to form a flagship renewable energy offering.
As a result, Dominion Virginia Power will manage and integrate energy from Amazon`s various wind and solar farm projects into the AWS computing center network.

Lightsource Labs is the innovation arm of Lightsource BP and combines advanced technological development capabilities with Lightsource BP`s in-depth experience in renewable energy to bring smart energy solutions to market. While Lightsource BP focuses on financing, developing and managing solar projects over the long term, Lightsource Labs is exploring new technologies and developing creative solutions to help households reduce their bills and carbon footprint. His last solution is Tribe. Starting in 2021, BP will supply AWS with more than 170 megawatts (MW) of new wind and solar projects built in Sweden and Spain – enough renewable energy per year to power more than 125,000 European homes.
