Google’s renewable energy pledge
Google will reach its goal of operating 100% on renewable energy sources in 2017.
All of the company’s global data centers and offices will be operating with renewable energy.
The company said it will “focus on regional renewable energy purchases in places where we have data centers and significant operations. We’ll also broaden the scope of energy sources to include technologies or services that can ultimately enable clean energy, every hour of the day.”
Google agreed to purchase a 842 MW of wind and solar to reach its goal of being fully green, which almost doubled the company’s renewable energy investment.
The company says it will continue to pursue their long term goal of having renewable power available 24 hours a day.
There are other big companies that are putting efforts in eliminating carbon-emitting power.
Apple got 93% of its energy from renewables in 2015. There are about 83 companies such as Bank of America, Ikea, Facebook, Microsoft, and Starbucks that are striving to reach maximum energy efficiency.
As more and more companies globally start to rely on renewable energy sources, it becomes evident how important this is in today’s world.
