RWE, ASML Sign Green-Power Supply Deal
By Mauro Orru
RWE AG said Tuesday that it has signed a power purchase
agreement with ASML Holding NV under which it will supply more than
250 gigawatt hours of green electricity a year to the Dutch maker
of semiconductor equipment.
The German energy company didn't disclose financial details for
the 10-year agreement, which is already under way.
RWE said it would supply power from two new onshore wind farms
to be commissioned during 2021, one solar plant in the Netherlands
and an offshore wind farm in Belgium.
"We are committed to taking our responsibility and support the
fight against climate change. As part of this commitment, we
support the energy transition and aim to source 100% of our energy
from responsible, renewable sources such as wind, solar and
geothermal energy in 2025," ASML's director of sustainability
strategy Marijn Vervoorn said in a statement.
