Google and AirTrunk have signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with energy provider OX2 in Australia for the development of a new solar farm in the Riverina district of New South Wales, from which Google and AirTrunk will receive 25MW of renewable power.

Damien Spillane, AirTrunk chief customer and innovation officer, said, "As a leader in hyperscale data centers in Asia-Pacific & Japan, AirTrunk is committed to accelerating the energy transition to achieve Net Zero by 2030. Our collaboration with Google and OX2 will deliver new renewable energy capacity into the grid on the east coast of Australia. Developments like this are critical to accelerating progress towards a carbon-free future in Australia.”

Rachel Watson, OX2 Australia country manager, added, “This is a very exciting project for OX2 to be involved in, as we establish a new relationship with AirTrunk and Google. Their commitment to buying carbon-free energy is helping to accelerate the energy transition, and get more renewable energy into the system.”
