Reports and analysis on the transfer to renewable energy

Several reports and analysis addresses the current worldwide focus on climate and sustainability, highlighting concerns and developments within different applications for the use of renewable energy versus traditional alternatives.

These reports and analysis are all very interesting to you and I, to organisations and not least companies that are currently in a transfer phase to renewable energy sources and clean power.

We have extracted some of these papers below, in a selection from well-recognised sources for your input and knowledge.

Titel:

“Renewable Energy for Mobile Towers”

Publisher:

GSMA

Release date:

Sep, 2020

Highlights:

  • The number of global towers increased from four million to five million in this period (2014-2020)
  • MNOs owned and managed close to 90 per cent of the world’s mobile towers in 2014, but today 70 per cent are owned and managed by tower companies (TowerCos)
  • ESCOs now own and operate the power systems at nearly 50,000 tower sites worldwide
  • Estimate that the total number of off-grid sites has fallen by 33 per cent since 2014, from 297,000 to 198,000 in 2020
  • The number of bad-grid sites was nearly cut in half, dropping from 267,000 to 145,000
  • 88 per cent of the world’s off-grid and bad-grid towers are still powered by non-renewable sources
  • Annual CO₂ emissions from diesel-powered generators at off-grid and bad-grid towers have been reduced by an estimated 2.2 million metric tones, from 9.2 million in 2014 to 7 million in 2020
  • The business models of MNOs and ESCOs comprise more incentives to invest in renewable/ clean technologies compared to TowerCos
  • Regional representative cases: Myanmar, Bangladesh, Fiji, Peru, Congo, Uganda, and Mali
