Apple confirms to Reuters it is spending $921 million (or 6 billion Danish crowns) to build a second datacentre in Denmark, one running entirely on renewable energy.

Apple datacentreThe facility is based in Aabenraa in southern Denmark, near the German border. It is set to start operations on Q2 2019, and will power Apple online services such as the iTunes, App Store, iMessage, Maps and Siri for European customers. The aforementioned renewable energy powering the datacentre comes from a combination of wind and biomass energy.

"We're thrilled to be expanding our datacentre operations in Denmark, and investing in new sources of clean power," the company says. "The planned facility in Aabenraa, like all of our data centers, will run on 100% renewable energy from day one, thanks to new clean energy sources we're adding."

The first Apple datacentre in the country, near the town of Viborg, is due to start operations later this year.
