Microsoft will buy renewable power from Repsol as the Spanish group became the latest European oil & gas player to forge a green energy alliance with the global technology giant.

Repsol will supply wind and solar energy to Microsoft operations in Spain and elsewhere in Europe under an expanded collaboration billed as an acceleration of cooperation in “digital innovation and the energy transition”.

The Spanish group is the latest in a string of major fossil groups to sign deals with Microsoft stressing energy transition and renewable energy supplies.
