Energy efficiency is a strategic priority for mobile network operators globally. As mobile use expands, so does the demand for energy, particularly by the network infrastructure. The GSMA’s Mobile Energy Efficiency (MEE) programme offers two services to MNOs: MEE Benchmarking and MEE Optimisation.
MEE Benchmarking is a management tool that helps MNOs measure and monitor the relative efficiency of their radio access networks, identifying under-performing networks and quantifying the potential efficiency gains available, typically around 10% to 25% across a MNO’s portfolio.
MEE Optimisation is a follow-on service that develops action plans for MNOs to reduce network energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions in under-performing networks. The service is run in partnership with a third party, e.g. a vendor, and it identifies individual energy saving measures and assesses the business case.
The GSMA is recruiting mobile network operators to join the MEE programme. To become involved, please contact email@example.com
