Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (NYSE: TMO), the world leader in serving science, recently signed an eight-year virtual power purchasing agreement with Enel North America to deliver a 90-megawatt (MW) portion of the Seven Cowboy wind project in western Oklahoma. Thermo Fisher will purchase approximately 400,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of renewable electricity, equal to half of the company’s current U.S. electricity needs.
As part of the company’s emissions-reduction strategy, Thermo Fisher plans to eventually transition most locations globally to renewable energy. Today, more than 60 sites worldwide are fully powered by renewable electricity, including seven facilities that generate 3.5 MW of solar power and 3 MW of wind energy.
