Microsoft signs its first renewable energy deal in Asia with Singaporean solar firm Sunseap

As part of its goal to use more renewable energy in its datacenters, Microsoft said it has entered an agreement with Singapore-based clean energy firm Sunseap. The value of Microsoft’s investment was not disclosed, but an announcement today said it will create “the single-largest solar energy portfolio in Singapore to date.”

During the 20-year agreement, Microsoft will buy 100% of the renewable energy that the solar project, which has a peak output of 60 megawatts, exports to the grid. Sunseap claims to be the leading solar energy provider in Singapore and also operates in other Southeast Asian markets, including Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines.
