Through a PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) between both companies, Google will purchase an additional 19.8 MW of wind capacity from Aspiravi. This installed capacity comes from 3 new-to-the-grid wind farms that Aspiravi is building in Flanders, Belgium and will be operational in 2025.

This agreement builds on a previous collaboration, in which Google purchased 59.2 MW of wind capacity from Aspiravi. Both companies are proud of this partnership, which not only strengthens the Belgian energy landscape, but also contributes directly to the country’s climate objectives.

This project is part of Google’s broader sustainability strategy. The company aims to run its data centers and office campuses on carbon-free energy (CFE) 24/7 on every grid it operates in by 2030, when measured on an hourly basis.

Frederic Descamps, Google’s Data Center Lead in Belgium adds: “Sustainability has been one of Google’s core values since its founding. We’re pursuing net zero emissions across our operations and value chain by 2030, supported by an ambitious clean energy goal to operate our data centers and office campuses on 24/7 carbon-free energy. Our ambition is to make a positive impact in every grid that we operate in. To achieve this, we work closely with leading energy companies such as Aspiravi, who are committed to our sustainable goals.”

It was essential for Google that the green energy from the agreement was 100% local and sustainable, which is why it once again turned to the West Flemish company Aspiravi.

Bernard Steverlynck, CEO Aspiravi Onshore: “We are very proud of this expansion of our partnership with Google, an innovative company with a very clear vision regarding sustainability. Aspiravi shares that vision and wants to be the local partner for energy-intensive companies in the field of renewable energy. Together with all our customers, we work on local and sustainable energy solutions for their companies. We are therefore pleased that we are contributing to the transition from fossil fuels to carbon-free energy production with partners such as Google. Together we work towards a more sustainable future for current and future generations”.
