Launched in 2011, the GSMA’s Mobile Energy Efficiency (MEE) Optimisation service follows on from MEE Benchmarking by using the results combined with site audits and equipment trials to:
- analyse the costs and benefits of specific actions to reduce energy and emissions, and
- roll out the most attractive solutions.
The service assesses in detail why a particular network is under-performing and what actions it could take to improve energy performance to the industry average and also to best in class. It assesses the business case for each energy-saving measures and implements the attractive solutions.
MEE Optimisation projects are run in partnership with a third party vendor or systems integrator. The GSMA has formed a Technology Partner Group to deliver the projects globally. The Technology Partner Group comprises the following companies:
MEE Optimisation completed its first project with Telefónica Germany and Nokia Siemens Networks’ Energy Solutions in 2012. The service identified €1.8 million savings in energy costs per annum with paybacks considerably less than three years, and emissions savings of four kilotonnes of carbon dioxide. A second project is underway in Asia.
