Apple now runs on 100% renewable energy. All of its activities on a global scale, from its data centres to its factories, including its shops and offices, are powered by renewable energies that it produces or buys.
In 2015, Apple announced its intention to operate at 100% renewable energy. This April 10, 2018, the Cupertino company announces that it has achieved its objective. All its Data Centers, offices, shops, as well as the factories in which its products are assembled are now powered by renewable energies. This is the case in the United States, but also in 43 countries, including China, the United Kingdom and India.
In order to achieve this goal, Apple has built its own renewable energy production facilities such as wind farms or solar panels. It thus produces its own renewable energy where possible. Otherwise, the company signs long-term contracts to buy its renewable energy from innovative local companies.
In total, Apple is currently undertaking 25 renewable energy projects and another 15 are in development. Its green energy production capacity, currently high at 626 megawatts, will soon increase to 1.4 gigawatts.
As Tim Cook, CEO of the Californian company, who recently opposed the cancellation of Obama’s Clean Power Plan, explains, it is a duty for Apple to leave the world in a better place. been that she never found it. The American company is proud to have reached this milestone and intends to continue its efforts in the years to come. The news comes a week after Google announced it was buying enough renewable energy to power its cloud.
