Apple Enters Agreement with Denmark University for new Biogas R&D Partnership

By Patently Apple.

Last February Apple officially announced a €1.7 billion plan to build and operate two data centers in Europe, each powered by 100 percent renewable energy. The facilities were planned to be located in County Galway, Ireland, and Denmark's central Jutland. Apple noted that the centers would power Apple's online services including the iTunes Store, App Store, iMessage, Maps and Siri for customers across Europe. Today the Copenhagen Post reports today that "Apple has followed up on its promise last year to build a data center in Denmark with an ambitious agreement with the University of Aarhus on a new biogas research and development partnership." 

In addition, we now know that beyond the general area of "central Jutland" Apple's facility was built in Foulum, a small town of about 100 households outside of Viborg where Aarhus University's agricultural research facilities are located.
