The GSMA today announced the successful completion of the first Mobile Energy Efficiency Optimisation project with Telefonica Germany and Nokia Siemens Networks' Energy Solutions.
Telefonica Germany participated in the GSMA's Mobile Energy Efficiency (MEE) Benchmarking service, and over the past three years has improved network energy efficiency by 14 percent per connection. Telefonica Germany has also signed up to the GSMA's MEE Optimisation service, which identified an additional cost saving potential of EUR1.8 million per year.
"We are delighted that this collaboration with Telefonica and Nokia Siemens Networks is a success and look forward to achieving the identified savings," said Gabriel Solomon, Head of Public Policy, GSMA. "The GSMA is focused on replicating this success with other networks around the world as we increasingly see that energy efficiency is a strategic priority for mobile network operators globally."
Launched in 2011, MEE Optimisation is a follow-on service from MEE Benchmarking that develops action plans for mobile operators to reduce network energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions. It identifies energy-saving measures and assesses the business case of each measure, enabling operators to implement cost-effective solutions.
