According to a report released by the environmental activist group Greenpeace Google, Apple and Facebook are spearheading the efforts to power the Internet with 100 percent renewable energy. The report titled “Clicking Clean: How Companies are Creating the Green Internet” details how these Internet leaders have brought about a key shift in the choice of energy sources over the last two years.
Greenpeace says that If the Internet were a country, its electricity demand would currently rank sixth. Industry estimates show that Internet data is expected to triple from 2012 to 2017. Recognizing the challenge, Google, Apple and Facebook are powering the global online environment with clean energy through their own initiatives.
