Optimising our power-intensive equipment
We work with our equipment vendors to ensure that increased demand and business growth do not result in a similar percentage increase in electricity usage.
This year, we:
- made energy efficiency a mandatory requirement in the procurement process for all energy-intensive network and IT products;
- developed more sustainable network technology, including the introduction of machine learning algorithms to optimise the usage of radio resources with minimum energy consumption; and
- evaluated emerging technology, including development of an innovation hub (Green Island) to showcase different technologies that promote sustainability and energy efficiency in radio access sites.
