In return, Amazon will help the oil group to accelerate its digital transformation. The agreement thus provides that Amazon web services (AWS) will provide it with the tools

which may almost seem anecdotal, should allow TotalEnergies to establish itself both in modernity and in the renewable energy market. In fact, like the other majors, the group is rapidly diversifying into green electricity. It intends to devote 2.5 billion of its $ 13 billion investment to renewables. In the meantime, TotalEnergies is still thriving with black gold. Taking full advantage of the rebound in oil prices, it posted a net profit of $ 2.2 billion in the second quarter, against a loss of more than 8 billion a year earlier.
