The GSMA’s MEE Optimisation service is a follow-on service to MEE Benchmarking which develops action plans for MNOs to reduce network energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions in under-performing networks. The objective of the service is to assess in more 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. The business case for each energy-saving measure is assessed. MEE Optimisation is run in partnership with a third party, e.g. a vendor.
The GSMA launched MEE Optimisation in 2011. MEE Optimisation has recently completed its first successful project with Telefónica Germany and Nokia Siemens Networks’ Energy Solutions, identifying €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.
