Ireland and Denmark are in Apple's sights, with the tech giant announcing that we will see an environmentally sustainable data center constructed in each which country - set to cost them €1.7 billion ($1.93 billion US).

These centers will be 166,000 square meters in size each and used for Apple online and cloud services for European customers. These fully renewable energy supplied facilities will be supporting Apple's iTunes, App store, iMessage, Maps and Siri applications.

No details have been provided just yet of exactly how this renewable energy will be generated and when asked by iTnews "on the design for power usage efficiency, total rack space capacity and server hardware choice for the data centers" no answer was given.

The Danish facility is set for construction in Viborg, Jutland and is located next to one of the largest electric substations. It's worth noting that excess heat produced by this data center will be used as part of the Viborg district central heating system.

Ireland's data center will be erected in Athenry, County Galway and is set to be constructed on top of recovered forestry land. Apple will be re-planting any destroyed trees in the Derrydonnel Forest, to make up for clearing that will take place.
