Global Clean Power Generation

The world is changing and at Applied Materials we are taking action to change it for a cleaner, brighter future. Our Energy and Environmental Solutions group is focused on technology and products that help reduce the need to burn fossil fuels and lower greenhouse gas emissions.

We source a portion of our electricity from renewable sources in the form of green power purchases from utilities, as well as several clean energy installations to our facilities around the world. In addition, solar photovoltaic panels installed at company sites in the U.S., Switzerland, Singapore and China generated nearly 3.6 GWh of energy. 2014 also marked the second-year in a row that Applied’s headquarters in Santa Clara, California harnessed 100% of its power from green energy purchases.

In 2014, Applied Materials was once again recognized for the company’s commitment to green energy, ranking No. 82 on the Environmental Protection Agency’s National Top 100 list of the largest green power users, as well as No. 13 on its list of Top 30 Tech & Telecom companies and No. 26 on its FORTUNE 500 list. Applied uses more than 67 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power annually, which is equivalent to avoiding the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of nearly 10,000 passenger vehicles per year, or the CO2 emissions from the electricity use of more than 6,000 average American homes.

See below to learn more about the Applied Materials solar arrays and environmental benefits.

  • Arques Rooftop and Parking Lot Solar Arrays

    In October of 2008, Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger dedicated the company’s nearly 2 megawatt rooftop- and parking lot-based solar installation at its Sunnyvale, California R&D campus. The solar panels are expected to produce power for at least 20 years with a projected pay back in 7-10 years, and the installation represents a long-term financial investment in clean energy.

    Applied Materials is one of the largest purchasers of green power from Silicon Valley Power; all of the power serving our Santa Clara, California sites is 100% sourced from renewable energy. The company’s Sunnyvale solar installation provides an additional 4% of green energy toward the total electricity used on the R&D campus.

    Approximately 8,000 wafer-based solar panels were used in an area of more than two football fields in size; the panels are manufactured by Sunpower Corporation using Applied Materials equipment.

    The tracking system in the parking lot uses GPS technology to follow the sun throughout the day, increasing sunlight capture by 30% over conventional systems.  The panels are the most efficient on the market today, with the rooftop panels providing 18% conversion efficiencies and the parking lot tracker panels providing 20% conversion efficiencies. The electricity generated is equivalent to that used by approximately 1,500 homes. The panels replace an amount of carbon equivalent to the emissions of 450 passenger cars for one year or that absorbed by 667 acres of pine forests.

  • Harris Branch Solar Array

    In August 2007, Applied Materials installed a 24kW solar array at its Austin campus that will generate more than 34 megawatt hours annually.

    The pollution-free panels eliminate 54,390 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions each year, roughly the equivalent of planting eight acres of trees. At the time of installation, this was the largest array ever installed at an Austin business site.

     

     

     

  • Xi’an Global Development Center Solar Array

    Recognizing the growing potential of China’s high-tech manufacturing industry, Applied Materials established a Xi’an Global Development Center in 2006. The center supports customers’ needs in semiconductor equipment engineering and field services, as well as in factory automation software, process diagnostics and control, and equipment engineering. It also serves as a training and development center for customers, partners, and employees.

    In 2008, Applied Materials activated a 56 kilowatt solar array on the campus, the largest solar array in Xi'an at the time, which helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more 65 tons per year.

  • Singapore Operations Center Solar Array

    Designed to meet stringent environmental standards, Applied’s Singapore Operations Center was awarded Singapore’s highest environmental honor – the Green Mark Platinum award – by the Singapore Building and Construction Authority.

    The Center features the largest thin film solar system in Singapore, a 400 kilowatt peak system that annually generates 450 megawatt hours of electricity – enough energy to power more than 100 apartments for a year.

    This system uses 5.7m2 PV solar panels, the most powerful in the world. Other fixtures include low-e glass curtain walls and a rainwater recycling system. These and other features are expected to result in energy savings of up to 30%.
