Apple Says it Runs on 100 Percent Renewable Energy

For now, though, Apple is either generating or paying for enough renewable power to offset its power usage in Apple stores, offices, data-centres, and other co-located sites. We collaborated for over two years to help build this program, which passes the costs directly to corporate buyers, while adding more low-priced, renewable electricity to the state's energy mix.
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. Apple has now announced pledges with 23 of its suppliers to serve Apple operations on 100% renewable energy.
Apple announced that their facilities are now 100 percent powered by renewable energy.
"Where feasible, we produce our own renewable energy by building our own renewable energy facilities, including solar arrays, wind farms, biogas fuel cells, and micro-hydro generation systems", the company writes in its 2017 Environmental Responsibility Report.
Still, around 26% of the country's total electricity production (link in Chinese) came from renewables, which is better than the 12% figure for the world as a whole. "After years of hard work we're proud to have reached this significant milestone", Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, said in a statement late Monday.
Among its major projects, Apple's enormous new headquarters in Cupertino, named Apple Park, will be powered by a 17MW onsite rooftop solar installation and 4MW of biogas fuel cells, all controlled by a microgrid with battery storage. If the plan is successful, DTE Energy would use its new clean power capacity to provide electricity to more than 450,000 average homes in the state. When they're complete, it'll mean in excess of 1.4 gigawatts of energy generation, spread across a total of eleven countries. Clearly, the economic benefits of renewable energy research are rising, as manufacturing methods mature and economies of scale help to reduce costs.
Mr Mahu stated that now, renewable energy contributed about one per cent to the national power generation mix, but the focus was to reach 10 per cent by 2030.

As U.S. production levels sore, the country is exporting more of its own oil and importing less from foreign sources. Oil prices retreated on Wednesday as trade tensions between China and the United States dampened investor sentiment.
