Commenting on the announcement, Greenpeace’s senior IT analyst Gary Cook said, ‘Facebook’s new data centre will make our shares and likes greener, and it will do the same for Ireland’s power grid. Facebook deserves credit for its steadfast progress as it drives toward its goal of 100 per cent renewable power.

‘Facebook became the first Internet company to commit to becoming 100 per cent renewably powered in 2011, and has matched its growth with more renewable energy ever since. Facebook’s leadership has helped set a high bar for other Internet giants. Every announcement of a major new data centre, anywhere in the world, should now come with a promise to power that facility with 100 per cent renewable energy.’
