Apple, Facebook, Google progress toward a green internet, but coal-heavy utilities stand in the way

San Francisco, 12 May, 2015 – Major internet companies including Apple, Facebook and Google continue to lead efforts to build an internet that is renewably powered, but an uncooperative fossil fuel sector and rapid energy demand growth for the internet places those ambitions under threat, according to a new report released today by Greenpeace [1]. Continued resistance to renewable investments from coal-heavy monopoly utilities in data center hot spots such as Virginia, North Carolina, and Taiwan is causing the rapid growth in the digital world to increase the demand for dirty energy.
