Google Cloud
24/7 Carbon-Free Energy
in 2020.

After Google announced the sustainability goal to reach 24/7 carbon-free energy by 2030, Google Cloud released their 2020 carbon-free energy percentages (CFE%) for their data centers around the world.

Google Cloud Carbon-Free energy current state and next challenges

Google Cloud data centers around the world results show that 67% of their energy consumed was local, carbon-free, and on an hourly basis, achieving it through different renewable sources like solar and wind power, thanks to the progress Google have achieved in how to track, buy and use the electricity, plus the application of energy policies and supporting the development of new technologies.

Nevertheless, it shows gaps to improve and achieve 100%, with the development of new projects, new technologies, or look for different types of renewable resources.

We highly recommend following Google's commitment to assist the decarbonization of the world's electric grids and make renewable energy 24/7 a collective action, preventing more impacts of climate change.

You can extend this information on the Google Cloud blog and read more news of the renewable energy industry in our news section.
