A new partnership to drive renewable energy growth in the US
10 April, 2018, 20:26
The company's new headquarters, Apple Park in Cupertino, California, runs on renewable energy, including a 17-megawatt rooftop solar panel project and four megawatts of biogas fuel cells. Apple's announcement means that all of its data centers, retail stores, offices and co-located facilities in 43 countries around the world are now 100% powered by renewable energy - truly a feat worth celebrating. It said nine additional manufacturing partners have committed to switching all their Apple production to 100 percent clean energy, bringing the total number of supplier commitments to 23.
It's an expensive process to embark on, too: Apple has deals with providers all around the world, and has to work around local limitations such as physical space, weather, and more.
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.
As Apple put it, "To get to 100 percent renewable energy for its own facilities, the company worked to set an example for others to follow".
While we suppose it might be a while before Apple's products are 100% made from sustainable materials, the good news is that in terms of their operations, Apple is now claiming that they are running on 100% renewable energy. It also gives clean energy back to the public grid during periods of low occupancy.

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.
Last week, Google said it now holds contracts to purchase 3GW of output from renewable energy projects, allowing it to reach its 100% clean energy target. Apple's biggest link in the supply chain, Foxconn, has yet to sign up.
