While often considered a more earth-friendly space, the infrastructure needed to run the internet currently accounts for about 2% of the world’s energy use. Furthermore, only 60% of the global population presently has internet access.

Now, Apeksha is designing for the planet’s energy needs with the demands of a more online future in mind.
