    Michael Scott, September 4, 2018 (Nasdaq)

    “…[In 2015, Facebook a goal to] have 50 percent of its power supplied to facilities from renewable energy sources by 2018. It hit that target a year early, in 2017…By 2020, it plans on going 100-percent renewable, cutting its greenhouse gas emissions by 75 percent…[Since 2013, the social media giant] has signed more than 3 GW of solar and wind contracts. But it’s biggest push has come over the past 12 months, during which time it’s signed off on over 2.5 GW to power its data centers in the U.S. and Europe…Most of that is in the United States, with 300 MW in Norway…[But it is] still behind some other Silicon Valley giants…Google is in the lead, with 3 gigawatts contracted just this year, following Apple, which is already powering all data centers and offices with renewable energy, and Amazon, which by January this year had hit the 50-percent renewable market for its data centers…[140 companies have signed 100 percent renewables pledges and] have purchased 7.2 GW of clean energy in 2018…” click here for more
