Apple plans to power a data center with biogas and solar energy

A protest against the perilous use of coal-fired plants slammed  recently Apple.

The Greenpeace organization has taken this decision.

Due to this, Apple plans to use fuel cells to power up its North Carolina data center.

This will feed on biogas  captured from landfill sites.

4.8 megawatts worth of fuel cells were supplied by Bloom Energy.

So, Apple want to lighten its carbon footprint. In this case greenhouse gas emissions will be reduced, using biogas instead of the conventional natural gas.

Apple wants Maiden to be one of the greenest datacenters known to mankind.
