Session Description

The upcoming event marks the official launch of the Energy Efficiency Benchmarking project, a groundbreaking initiative aimed at addressing the escalating need for energy efficiency in the telecommunications sector. Organized by GSMA Intelligence, in collaboration with a diverse consortium of global mobile operators, the event will serve as a platform to unveil the project's objectives, methodologies, and initial findings.




What is the Energy Efficency Benchmark?

Partnering with a global set of mobile operators, GSMA Intelligence leveraged its independent position and analytical capabilities to launch its Energy Efficiency Benchmarking project in 2020. The benchmark is based on fully anonymised, real-world data inputs, with a goal of quantifying network energy consumption, efficiency levels and fuel sources.
With each successive year, operator participation in the benchmarking project has grown. The result is a unique, increasingly salient, network-level, global data set on energy efficiency yielding so far not measured datapoints alongside insights into sustainability trends, technologies and best practices.

GSMA Intelligence is grateful for the 17 operator groups that participated in the project: AIS, Bharti Airtel India, Chunghwa Telecom, Deutsche Telekom, e&, Ethio Telecom, Globe, M1, MTN, Optus, Orange, Singtel, Telecom Argentina, Telecom Italia, Telefónica, Telkomsel and Veon. The 17 operators not only provided data about 65 networks in 59 countries but also actively participated in workshops and provided useful insights for this report. Overall, these operators serve almost 1.6 billion connections globally, representing 19% of total cellular connections.
