We are all talking about digital transformation, digital economy, wireless living, smart living, and creating mega datacenters which require a lot of power and energy. Sustainability and green commitments have become an important part of CSR strategies.
Carbon neutrality has become a globally recognized mission, one to which the ICT industry is actively contributing. Leading vendors should take that into consideration throughout their innovation chain.
These days, advancements in ICT are focusing more on using less energy to transmit, process, and store more information, while making energy systems more efficient.
As per experts, the 5G’s energy consumption is only 1/10 compared to 4G's and it can provide 30 times the capacity. This example illustrates a significant improvement. Digital technology can also support renewable and clean electricity generation, while also optimizing energy supply and demand models.
According to the Global Enabling Sustainability Initiative (GeSI), ICT has the potential to enable a 20% reduction of global CO2 emissions by 2030.
At MWC 2022, many keynotes and panels are taking this issue to the next level, in order to urge all ICT stakeholders to make sustainability an objective to protect the environment and lower the OPEX of companies, mainly datacenters which consume power intensively.
