Microsoft, Brookfield to partner on renewable energy projects

Brookfield Asset Management of Canada and tech titan Microsoft have announced a collaboration to construct new wind and solar farms, aiming to generate more than 10.5 gigawatts of additional renewable energy capacity. 

This partnership outlines Brookfield’s commitment to roll out the new renewable energy infrastructure between 2026 and 2030 across the United States and Europe, according to a Microsoft representative in a statement to Reuters via email.

The collaboration was initially reported by The Financial Times, which stated that the development of 10.5 gigawatts of fresh capacity would exceed $10 billion, referencing current industry patterns. However, neither Brookfield nor Microsoft revealed any financial specifics regarding the arrangement. 

The agreement highlights the urgency to fulfill clean energy obligations while addressing the substantial energy requirements of cloud computing and artificial intelligence.
