Global Press release - Business January 2022

Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has advised OVHcloud, a European provider of cloud solutions, on its first renewable power purchase agreement with EDF Renouvelables, one of the world leaders in renewable energy. The 15-year agreement covers the supply of electricity from a 50 MW solar power plant in France to be built, owned and operated by EDF Renewables.

Under the deal, OVHcloud will be supplied with competitively priced renewable energy to power a number of its data centres in France, which currently consist of 16 buildings at four locations. It will help meet OVHcloud’s decarbonisation goal of obtaining 100% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2025.

EDF Renewables will build a 50 MW photovoltaic power plant in the south of France, with a scheduled commissioning date in 2024.

The Norton Rose Fulbright team was led by global head of energy, Anne Lapierre, assisted by Paris-based associate Pierrick Ferrero.
