Lightsource BP has entered into a solar power purchase agreement (PPA) with Microsoft in Poland. The long-term PPA covers output from a 40MW solar project and also supports Microsoft’s goal of achieving 100% renewable energy supply by 2025.
Chief executive of Europe and APAC for Lightsource BP Kareen Boutonnat said: “Solar power has a huge role to play in Poland’s energy transition and in the two years since Lightsource BP began work in Poland, our team has built up a significant 2GW pipeline of solar opportunities. “This contract with Microsoft is a blueprint for Poland’s renewable future and support our goal to support the decarbonisation of Poland’s growing economy.” With one of the most carbon-intensive power grids in the EU, renewable energy in Poland is essential to cutting regional greenhouse gas emissions.
