Apple said its deals with utilities had resulted in 25 operating renewable projects totaling 625MW, part of a portfolio that will eventually total 1.4GW across 11 countries.
China was the biggest investor in renewable energy in 2017, sinking $US126.6 billion into the industry, a 30% increase over 2016. "These projects represent a diverse range of energy sources, including solar arrays and wind farms as well as emerging technologies like biogas fuel cells, micro-hydro generation systems and energy storage technologies".
Additionally, nine of Apple's manufacturing partners-e.g. the companies that actually make Apple products-and 23 suppliers have all committed to powering all of their work for Apple with 100 percent clean energy by some unspecified date. Major energy projects have pushed the company toward clean operations.
In 2014 Apple announced that all of their data centers were running on renewable energy, and up until today 96% of Apple's other operations had been using environmentally friendly energy sources too. We just broke ground on our new data center in Alabama and through a partnership with the Tennessee Valley Authority, we'll be able to scout new wind and solar projects locally and work with TVA to bring new renewable energy onto their electrical grid.
Apple is building solar arrays and wind farms, biogas fuel cells, micro-hydro generation systems and energy storage technologies - 25 of these projects are now operating, and 15 more are under construction.
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.
The announcement follows reports Apple has stepped up its opposition to moves in the USA to repeal the Clean Power Plan, warning that scrapping President Obama's flagship climate policy could undermine its current and future investments in renewable energy.
"The workshop is, therefore, to discuss power generation expansion and renewable energy integration, financing, as well as lessons learned from indigenous players in the solar energy sector".
