Google and Eneco have inked a deal that will see the IT giant buy all power generated by Sunport Delfzijl, the Netherlands’ largest solar farm, to feed a datacentre in the nearby Dutch city of Eemshaven.

The power purchase agreement (PPA), which covers a period of ten years, is Google’s fourth in the European country and brings the company’s total global contracted delivery of renewable energy to 2.7GW.

“Google is forward-thinking to use locally generated solar and wind energy to power its data centre,” says Bram Poeth, director of Eneco commercial clients.
