Google has an extensive network of data centers around the world to serve the needs of their users. However, it is not known exactly how much energy Google’s data centers consume, as the company does not publish specific data on the energy consumption of individual data centers.
However, in 2019, Google announced that they will fully offset their energy consumption with renewables by the end of that year. Google accounted for about 0.5% of the world’s total energy use in 2017, and the transition to renewables is an important part of their efforts to reduce their carbon footprint, with their services like Gmail, Webmail, Youtube, Adwords and Adsense.
To achieve this goal, the Alphabet company has made major investments over the years in renewable energy, including wind and solar power. The company has also taken measures to improve the efficiency of their data centers, such as using advanced cooling systems and reducing the energy consumption of the equipment itself.
