Apple investing heavily in the new data center and biogas research at Denmark which will soon power the company’s popular services on 100 percent renewable energy.
The huge American computer giant has stuck to the promise it made last year. Saying that it will soon build a data centre in Denmark with an ambitious agreement with the University of Aarhus. A biogas research and development partnership is its base for now. A new press release on Monday suggests something similar. Apple said it would spend €1.7 billion (17.2 billion kroner) to build two new European data centres.
“This is a clearly a benefit of Apple’s billion-kroner investment in the data centre in Foulum” says Kristin Jensen. Adding “The partnership is a good example of how our targeted efforts to attract foreign companies to Denmark are producing results.”
Moreover, As Apple CEO Tim Cook points out, both centers will run on 100% renewable energy. This energy will power company’s services like iTunes, iMessage, Siri, the Apple app store, its products including iMacs, MacBook, iPhone 7, iPhone 6 and more.
“This significant new investment represents Apple’s biggest project in Europe to date. We’re thrilled to be expanding our operations, creating hundreds of local jobs and introducing some of our most advanced green building designs yet,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said.
Denmark at Advantage
“An investment like this confirms that Denmark has managed to strike the right balance between an ambitious and climate-friendly energy policy and a world-class business environment,” Jensen says.
