I asked the support about the Frankfurt data center, and I got the answre below. So, Frankfurt indeed runs on 100% renewable energy, and you can find information about the other data centres as well:
At this time we partner with several data center providers. You can find detail about their energy consumption and efforts to utilize renewable energy sources here:
Equinix (NYC1, LON1, AMS2, AMS3, SGP1, TOR1) - https://www.equinix.com/data-centers/design/green-data-centers/

Today feels like a good day to bump this thread. Digital Ocean, can you please supply information about your energy suppliers in 2018 and if you have plans to move to renewable sources.
I’m also interested in the answer to this question. I would also be willing to pay a surcharge if necessary.
I would love to know which of the Digital Ocean regions run on sustainable energy.

I would also like to know. I’m hosting my website in Singapore and I have no idea if the energy used is renewable or not, I guess not.
And I would also be willing to pay more for that, I would be ok with paying double or three times the amount I currently pay.
Otherwise I think I’ll just move to another hosting provider, which is a shame because Digital Ocean is simply the best one for my needs.
I would also like to know this - I’m assessing my business’ impact on the earth and wish to choose providers who are trying to reduce theirs too.
