Increasing our use of renewable energy sources to 100 percent in 2020.
We’re working aggressively to support our facilities with 100 percent renewable energy in 2020 Facebook has contracted for over 3.5 gigawatts of renewable energy, making us the largest corporate purchaser of renewable energy in the world. In 2018, we achieved 75% renewable energy, and are on track to meet our goal in 2020.
Renewable energy made up over 75% of our overall electricity mix in 2018. We have steadily increased our renewable energy since 2013 on our pathway to 100% in 2020
Electricity mix prior to 2016 was calculated using only data on data centers, but we are confident that this is also a close representation of our overall grid mix as data center electricity counts for >95% electricity each year. Beyond 2016, the calculation is based on data for all facilities.
