Apple is Expanding Renewable Energy Footprint in Europe

Apple is Expanding Renewable Energy Footprint in Europe”

Both will be 200 meters high (a record for onshore turbines) and have the capacity to produce 62 gigawatt hours per day, a capacity equivalent to the energy required for 20,000 homes.

Apple environment, policy and social initiatives vice president Lisa Jackson said: "Combatting climate change demands urgent action and global partnership - and the Viborg data centre is powerful proof that we can rise to this generational challenge". Now operational, it powers the App Store, Apple Music, iMessage, and Siri, as well as other services in Europe using entirely renewable energy.

It was also stated that investment in clean energy can deliver breakthrough innovations that later on bring clean energy as well as good jobs to businesses and the local communities. This is definitely an area noted that needs leadership for the sake of both the planet and future generations. Surplus power will be sent to the Danish grid, but it isn't clear how much that will be. The sites will be near the Danish town of Esbjerg. So far, 72 manufacturing partners have committed to completely renewable energy for Apple production, they added. Varta is another addition to the number of European suppliers working towards clean energy solutions.

The moves are part of Apple's plan, announced last month, to become carbon neutral across its entire business and supply chain. While Apple's operations are already powered by 100% renewable energy and carbon-neutral, this new commitment will mean that by 2030, every Apple device sold will have net-zero climate impact. All across Europe, Apple's own suppliers are now working towards other clean energy solutions for all of their Apple products that include both Henkel and Tesa SE, both based in Germany.

Germany-based supplier Varta committed this week to running its Apple production with 100 percent renewable power. These solutions include DSM's wind power purchase agreement in the Netherlands and STMicroelectronics's solar carport in Morocco. Companies like Solvay are now expanding their use of renewable energy to their broader operations after joining Apple's Supplier Clean Energy Program five years ago.

In order to meet that goal, Apple says that the company is transitioning all of its European-based suppliers to renewable power.
