Apple data centres are 100% run on renewable energy

Apple, the US corporate that designs, develops, and sells consumer electronics, computer software and personal computers, has a goal to power every facility the company has entirely with energy from renewable sources — solar, wind, hydro, and geothermal.

In an update posted on its Environmental Policies website, it has confirmed that all its data centres now run on 100% renewable energy. These include its facilities in Austin, Elk Grove, Cork, and Munich, and at our Infinite Loop campus in Cupertino.

In addition, the update claims “ for all of Apple’s corporate facilities worldwide, we’re at 75% , and we expect that number to grow as the amount of renewable energy available to us increases. We won’t stop working until we achieve 100% throughout Apple”. In its Malden facility in North Carolina, the company is building a 20 megawatt solar farm to power tits new US$1 billion data centre.

Earlier this month, Salesforce, a leading provider of enterprise cloud computing and social enterprise solutions, announced that it has set itself a goal to power its global data centres entirely with renewable energy.
