Amazon to Go Green Throughout their Server Farms

/ 8 years ago

After receiving harsh criticism for the energy efficiency of their data centres from Greenpeace earlier this year, Amazon has shown willingness to consider their environmental impact, with the company vowing to use renewable energy to power their server farms.

Greenpeace gave Amazon’s data centre in Morrow County, Oregon an F grade, citing the company concealing its electricity sources and lobbying against Oregon’s clean energy laws for its own ends. Amazon Web Services rents out server space in its data centres to other companies that need cloud storage facilities. On its website, the company wrote, “AWS has a long-term commitment to achieve 100% renewable energy usage for our global infrastructure footprint.” Greenpeace has cautiously applauded the move, calling it, “a potential breakthrough,” but are keen to learn more about how Amazon plan to achieve their goal.
