All Apple Facilities are now Powered by Clean Energy

The iconic Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California, was built with renewables in mind from day one, with the roof of the building covered in a 17 MW rooftop solar installation that is paired with 4 MW of biogas fuel cells.

Apple says that the new milestone covered power usage in its stores, data centers, offices and co-located sites across 43 countries. Apple is now completely powered by renewable energy - and 23 of its manufacturing suppliers have committed to do the same.

Apple has finally hit its goal of running its own operations off 100% renewable energy.

"What's important to us is that we are adding new clean energy sources to the electrical system, and that we're buying that renewable energy in the same amount as what we're consuming, globally and on an annual basis", he said.

Apple says it now has 25 operational renewable energy projects globally, which total 626 megawatts of generation capacity, with 286 megawatts of solar PV generation coming this year, its highest ever in a year; 15 more projects are under construction.

The company says since 2011, their renewable energy projects have reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 54 percent from its worldwide facilities, and stopped nearly 2.1 million metric tons of CO2e from the atmosphere.

China has been aggressively adopting renewable energy in recent years to deal with its airpocalypse-like pollution.

According to the Deputy Director of Renewable Electricity at the Ministry of Energy, Mr Seth Mahu, the move would also support the industrialisation agenda and agricultural policies of the government. Once those are completed, it will have more than 1.4 gigawatts of clean capacity across 11 countries.
