Apple's Entire Business Is Now Being Powered With Clean Energy

Renewable energy projects that provide power to Apple facilities range from large wind farms in the United States to clusters of hundreds of rooftop solar systems in Japan and Singapore

The company has also announced that nine more of its manufacturing partners have committed to power all of their Apple production with 100% clean energy, bringing the total number of supplier commitments to 23.

And over 85 suppliers have signed up for Apple's Clean Energy Portal that helps suppliers find renewable energy in different regions around the world. "After years of hard work we're proud to have reached this significant milestone", said Apple CEO Tim Cook.

In March, Apple's latest Supplier Responsibility progress report for 2018 had highlighted how India supplier Wistron had achieved a Zero Waste to Landfill certification in record time.

Apple's been pushing for more investment in renewable energy for quite some time now, and almost two years ago announced that its operations in 23 countries, including the U.S. and United Kingdom, were completely powered by renewable sources. Now this extends to 43 countries around the world, with 25 renewable energy projects that offer 626 megawatts of energy generation capacity.

With 15 more projects under construction, Apple is therefore on target to complete more than 1.4 GW of clean energy generation across 11 countries.

The facility eventually will power Wynn's newest 280,000-square-foot meeting and convention expansion with 100 percent renewable energy. It also gives clean energy back to the public grid during periods of low occupancy. It is noteworthy to mention, the company's new Cupertino "spaceship" campus is completely powered by renewable energy.

The journey to 100% renewable energy has taken years, with a slow progression of solar installations, wind farm energy contracts, and new facilities starting up on 100% renewables like its high-tech 400,000-square-foot data center that is on track for startup in 2020 in Waukee, Iowa.

China first overtook the USA in new renewable energy investment in 2009 (p.14), but the gap between the two only amounted to $14 billion at that time.

However, there's still some way to go until Google is 100% run on renewable energy sources. "How much will you charge me for some of your clean energy?' No".
