Case study: Telstra achieves A$1.5 million in mobile network energy savings
Over the past two years, Australian operator Telstra has implemented mobile energy efficiency initiatives across its network, resulting in annual cost savings of A$ 1.5 million and carbon emission reductions of 6,700 TCO2e. With its strong emphasis on sustainability, the company has been measuring and reporting its carbon emissions since 2000. In 2010, Telstra decided to implement significant measures to capture the benefits offered by mobile energy efficiency solutions. The impact of this successful energy reduction programme is noticeable in Telstra’s results from the GSMA’s Mobile Energy Efficiency Benchmarking service, with strong improvements in RAN energy per connection, per cell site and per unit traffic.
