BP and Microsoft form strategic partnership to drive digital energy innovation and advance net zero goals

BP and Microsoft signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to accelerate progress towards their sustainability goals and help the world decarbonise. The partnership aims to espouse digital transformation in energy systems and advance the net zero carbon goals of both companies. To this aim, it will focus on four areas that combine Microsoft’s digital expertise with BP’s expertise on energy markets including smart and clean cities, clean energy parks, consumer energy, and industrial Internet of things (IIoT) solutions. While Microsoft will help BP accelerate its digital transformation with Azure cloud services, BP will provide Microsoft with renewable energy to help meet the company’s 2025 renewable energy goals.
