These facilities include retail stores, offices, data centres and co-located premises in 43 countries such as the USA, UK, China and India. When these new projects become operational in 2019 and 2020, participating customers like us will be able to substitute a portion of our electricity bill with a fixed price matched to the production of renewable energy generated.

Hölzle went on to explain the company is taking its responsibilities even further, entering into contracts to buy a further three gigawatts of power from renewable sources. Jackson highlights how Apple has not only focused on reducing emissions but also contributed to the availability of green energy on the grid.

The news follows a similar announcement from Google, which claimed in December it had attained a goal of 100 percent renewable energy.

Apple, Google and technology-based peers such as Facebook and Amazon have been among the leaders of the corporate renewable energy movement, procuring large volumes of power for the data centres that underpin their operations.

Apple has hit its target of powering all its facilities with renewable energy, in the latest sign of an industry-wide shift towards clean power.

Apple hits 100% renewables goal

Apple now has 25 operational renewable energy projects around the world, totalling 626MW megawatts of generation capacity, with 286MW of solar PV generation coming online just in 2017.

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.

To sum up, Apple is not technically using 100% renewable energy sources but it uses this term to imply that it can meet its global energy consumption in future by using green energy. Its data centres now source 44 per cent of power needs from renewable energy.

Through this program, Google will procure 78.8 megawatts (MW) of solar energy for our Douglas County, Georgia data center, as part of our effort to utilize renewable energy in every market where we operate.

"We're committed to leaving the world better than we found it", Apple chief executive Tim Cook said in a statement.
