ChatGPT Consumes Electricity Equal to 283,000 California Homes’ Daily Consumption in Year

The Governor of the Saudi Public Investment Fund, Yassir Al-Rumayyan, said that the ChatGPT application consumes electricity in one day equivalent to the consumption of 283,000 homes in California in a year.

Al-Rumayyan added, during his speech during the launch of the “Priority Summit” of the Future Investment Initiative in Brazil in Rio de Janeiro, that this shows the scale of the challenge that the world will face, while continuing to use fossil fuels, especially coal and others. Therefore solutions must be sought to operate artificial intelligence from renewable energy.


He continued: “This is what we are working on, and I believe that Brazil is in a good position to be one of the main players.”

He stated that energy is the biggest challenge facing the development of artificial intelligence, noting that energy consumption in artificial intelligence will exceed all limits.

“We expect electricity consumption to increase between 3% and 6% annually from the use of artificial intelligence,” according to Al-Rumayyan.

Al-Rumayyan also expressed the Fund’s interest in investing in football in Brazil. He said that the Kingdom aims to increase PIF assets to about $3 trillion by 2030. Furthermore, Al-Rumayyan highlighted that this investment is part of a broader strategy to diversify the PIF’s portfolio and enhance its global presence.
