Going green: benchmarking the energy efficiency of mobile networks (second edition) 74384072
Sustained cost pressures and commitments to net zero in support of the 2015 Paris Agreement have made energy efficiency a strategic priority for many telecoms operators around the world. This is compounded by data traffic rises associated with LTE and 5G migration. To help provide an evidence base for measuring progress, we partnered with a group of operators to develop a Mobile Energy Efficiency Benchmarking tool. The tool is based on real-world data inputs from operators on a fully anonymised basis to quantify network energy consumption and efficiency levels, and fuel sources.
