Además de compartir conocimientos e investigaciones, el programa GSMA CleanTech está trabajando para reunir a las partes interesadas clave para abordar de manera colaborativa las barreras para cambiar a soluciones de energía renovable. Al crear plataformas de participación en toda la industria, el programa tiene como objetivo crear una comunidad de liderazgo intelectual para impulsar el cambio y adaptar las soluciones de energía renovable.
Access to mobile services, including mobile broadband, has helped unlock an array of new opportunities and services that are enhancing the livelihoods of the world’s most underserved populations, spurring economic growth and enabling the mobile industry to contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
In many low and middle-income countries (LMICs), access to mobile connectivity has been expedited by the expansion of mobile towers into areas either not connected to a national grid, or connected but receiving unreliable electrical power. In these locations, “off-grid” and “bad-grid” towers tend to rely on on-site diesel-powered generators for their operation, inflicting a measurable cost on the environment and the balance sheets of mobile network operators (MNOs). Over the last decade MNOs, tower companies (TowerCos) and other key stakeholders have been exploring various technology solutions to adopt renewable energy for these diesel-powered towers. However, our latest study highlights that 88 per cent of off-grid and bad-grid towers in LMICs are still powered by non-renewable sources.
