With growing demand of Energy/Power to give supply to its thousands of server around the world, Google is looking for some cost effiecent energy resources and finally, Google is going totally renewable.
The search giant said Tuesday it expects to reach its goal of running 100 percent of its global operations, including data centers and officers, on renewable energies by next year.
Those data centers especially gobble enormous amounts of energy to help power trillions of Google searches every year. To offset those energy needs, the company buys enough wind and solar electricity every year to account for all the electricity its operations consume worldwide. Google said it’s currently the largest corporate buyer of renewable power, with commitments for 2.6 gigawatts of energy, most from wind projects.
A handful of other tech heavyweights have also worked to increase their renewable energy commitments, including Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook and Apple.
“Our ultimate goal is to create a world where everyone — not just Google — has access to clean energy,” Urs Hölzle, senior vice president of technical infrastructure said in a blog post Tuesday.
