The power produced by the turbines, located in Denmark, will support Apple’s data centre in Viborg, the company said in a blog post Thursday. The Viborg center backs Apple’s key products, including the App Store, Apple Music, iMessage and Siri.
Apple said in July that it extended its goal to become entirely carbon neutral by 2030 and filling its network with Viking wind is a good way forward.
Apple Varta, a German-based supplier, committed to running its Apple production with 100 percent renewable power. So far, 72 manufacturing partners have committed to completely renewable energy for Apple production, it added.
Apple said in a filing in 2019 that severe weather caused by global warming could “cause a temporary disruption in production or the availability of component parts or finished products, in the availability of a data centre, or in the availability or productivity of our workforce”.
A delay in parts would mean Apple might not be able to ship products on time, which could hurt the company’s sales.
