    Apple, the world's leading manufacturer of mobile phones and computers, has decided to invest in green technology in China. Apple has long strived to ensure that its buildings and infrastructure run exclusively on renewable energy sources. He intends to embark on this strategy, not just with himself, but also with suppliers. Investing in green energy Apple's American technology company is one of the pioneers in the field of renewable energy (RES) to power its own technology centers in the US and worldwide. Last year, Apple began selling green energy from its US power plants, this year the company continues to invest more in RES in China. Apple produces most of its appliances in China, which it sells worldwide, including the United States. At the same time, China is one of the most important retail markets for the business, Although there is increasing competition from local producers.For the Chinese government, reducing pollution is a key priority, putting pressure on local and international companies to help reduce high levels of smog in large cities and clean up waterways and contaminated soil. ten suppliers in China will invest $ 300 million ($ 7.5 billion) in several projects that will deliver 1 GW of power to China's national power grid from 2022 onwards. Three wind power plants will be the first to provide up to 134 MW of electricity. Apple wants to make it easier for partners to switchHowever, Apple is driving all its data centers with green energy in the US and Europe. In addition, Apple operates its own 20 MW solar power plants in Nevada, 130 MW in California and 50 MW in Arizona. Apple's total solar power capacity is approximately 220 MW. At the same time, 44 suppliers from 16 countries have committed to 100% renewable energy use. By 2020, they should break the 4 GW net energy limit that all companies will use. This will allow them to benefit from better prices and to make the transition to different types of renewable energy sources easier.
