Manufacturing isn't all there yet, but the company claims to have an additional nine manufacturing partners promising to power its facilities by 100 per cent renewable energy - increasing the total to 23.

"We're not spending any more than we would have", Lisa Jackson, Apple's vice president for environment, policy and social initiatives, said in an interview. "After years of hard work we're proud to have reached this significant milestone", said Apple CEO Tim Cook.

"We do want to get to a point where renewables and other carbon-free energy sources actually power our operations every hour of every day", Holzle said in Google's blog post.

This announcement is the culmination of years of investment in clean energy sources for all its operations worldwide.

"Where feasible, we produce our own renewable energy by building our own renewable energy facilities, including solar arrays, wind farms, biogas fuel cells, and micro-hydro generation systems", the company writes in its 2017 Environmental Responsibility Report.

Apple expects another 286MW of solar PV capacity to come online this year, in addition to a further 15 renewables projects which are now under construction.

The facilities include retail stores, offices and data centres in 43 countries, the company said.

As we build and expand data centers and offices to meet growing demand for Google's products, we constantly add renewable energy to our portfolio to match 100 percent of our energy use. It is powered by 100 percent renewable energy from multiple sources, including a 17-megawatt onsite rooftop solar installation and four megawatts of biogas fuel cells, and controlled by a microgrid with battery storage. It is now the largest LEED Platinum-certified office building in North America that brings together solar, biogas, batteries, and a microgrid controller to keep everything playing nicely together to meet the energy needs of the facility. It's a stunning achievement, and being done by the world's most profitable company is a resounding statement for those who think renewable energy simply costs too much.

China was the biggest investor in renewable energy in 2017, sinking $US126.6 billion into the industry, a 30% increase over 2016.
