RENEWABLE TECH APPLE, Google and Facebook ; ECONOMY TODAY [Newcastle Journal (England)]
(Newcastle Journal (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) APPLE, Google and Facebook are among the technology companies pushing to power the internet with 100% renewable energy, according to a new report by Greenpeace.
It says Amazon is falling behind in the effort to reduce a reliance on energy sources like coal in powering data centres and cloud servers used by customers.
The report emphasises the responsibility that lies with technology companies, and points to the statistic that if the internet were a country, it would rank sixth in the world on the electricity demand table.
