EPA, DOE Recognize IBM as ‘Green Power Purchasing’ Leader

Washington, DC [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) awarded IBM a 2006 Green Power Purchasing Award for its use of renewable energy purchases in the U.S., including wind, solar and biomass-generated electricity. As part of the company’s commitment to climate stewardship, IBM bought 96,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) and 13,704 MWh of electricity generated by wind turbines, solar panels or biomass. This is the largest purchase by a Fortune 10 company, making IBM the seventh largest corporate purchaser of renewable energy and Green-e certified RECs in the U.S. IBM also has been recognized by EPA as one of the Top 25 Green Power Purchasers in its Green Power Partnership since March of 2006.
