Apple’s commitment to innovation doesn’t stop at consumer
technology, the EPA will attest.
The agency recently named Apple one
of four Partners of the Year as part of
its Green Power Leadership Awards, in
which the EPA honors companies that
have demonstrated significant commitments to reducing their environmental
impact. Apple claimed the honor for its
progress toward a three-pronged goal to
displace dirtier forms of energy, ensure
that whatever energy it procures is additional to what would have otherwise
occurred, and demonstrating accountability for the company’s green power
To that end, Apple supplies its data
centers with 100% renewable energy,
and all U.S. corporate facilities are 100%
renewable-fueled thanks to a combination of generation and purchasing. The
company’s renewable strategy focuses
on creating new Apple-owned generation
projects near its biggest centers of energy
demand, including two 20 MW solar
arrays and a 10 MW fuel cell installation
supplied by directed biogas. These three
projects alone offer an annual capacity of
167 million k Wh.
To supplement this, Apple pairs its
on-site generation with renewable energy
certificates (RECs) generated in the same

Google, Oklahoma State University, and
the global medical technology company
BD were also named Partners of the Year
in 2014, and another 15 organizations
were honored for green power purchasing and on-site generation initiatives.
Together, the honorees use more than 7. 6
billion k Wh of green power every year.
APPLE’S AMBITIOUS ENERGY GOALS and progress toward reducing its environmental impact
earned it a Partner of the Year award from the EPA. The company supplies its data centers
with 100% renewable energy and generates power near its biggest sources of energy demand.
