American tech giant HP has announced it will only use renewable electricity globally from now on. As part of this goal, HP is joining RE100, a global initiative of top businesses committed to 100% renewable electricity, which is led by The Climate Group in partnership with CDP.
RE100 works with companies to help businesses transition to renewable energy sources and accelerate the transformation of the global energy market to a low carbon economy.
As a step to achieve this goal, HP plans to reach the 40% renewable electricity mark by 2020 in its global operations.
HP is applying a three-phase strategy to reach this goal:
1. Reduce energy consumption by optimizing operations/building efficiency and implementing new efficiency projects.
2. Increase the use of on-site renewable power.
3. Acquire or generate off-site renewable power to offset brown power emissions, including the use of renewable energy credits (RECs) and power purchase agreements (PPAs).
Along with this, HP also unveiled the world's thinnest laptop dubbed as HP Spectre. Spectre measures 10.4 millimeters (0.41 inch) at its thickest point, this makes it slimmer than than the 12-inch MacBook (0.52 inches) and MacBook Air (0.68 inches).
Another USP of the laptop is its copper design combined with carbon fiber that gives the laptop a premium look. It features 13.3-inch full HD screen with Corning Gorilla Glass. The laptop comes with 8GB LDDR3 RAM and 512GB SSD storage and runs on 6th generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors.
