2023 Energy Performance Snapshot

We purchase renewable electricity when available, and continue to purchase electricity from fossil-fuel sources in jurisdictions where reliable and abundant alternative energy sources are not available.

Electricity Overview

Primary sources of energy for our manufacturing, testing and office sites come from the electrical grid. Our ongoing efforts to conserve electricity and optimize our manufacturing processes have helped us use electricity more efficiently.

Manufacturing Electricity

Our manufacturing sites continually optimize processes and replace or upgrade equipment. We aim to achieve our renewable electricity goal through power purchase agreements, the use of unbundled renewable energy certificates (iRECs) and, in select cases, self-generation.

Since 2015, we have steadily increased our use of electricity that comes from renewable sources. Overall, our renewable electricity usage increased by 4 percentage points compared to 2022, to a total of 39% renewable electricity for the company overall in 2023. Since we set our renewable energy target in 2021, our renewable electricity usage has increased by 9 percentage points.

Energy Consumption

We use natural gas to power heating, cooling and humidity-management equipment critical to manufacturing and test processes and diesel fuel for emergency generators. The emissions from these fossil fuels are included in the totals of our Scope 1 emissions.
