Progress with energy efficiency – energy efficiency with progress

The largest environmental impact of the A1 Telekom Austria Group is the electricity used to operate its networks. In fact, it accounts for about 80 % of its total energy requirements. The new mobile communications standard 5G enables even faster data transmissions and greater bandwidths. At the same time, an increase in electricity demand is expected in connection with 5G communication. Measures to increase energy efficiency therefore play a central role in making the infrastructure and the products and solutions based on it as sustainable as possible.

The A1 Telekom Austria Group has been focusing on increasing its energy efficiency already for years, in order to decouple the increasing data volumes from the related energy consumption. The use of the latest RAN (Radio Access Network) components at the subsidiaries of the A1 Telekom Austria Group ensures not only a high quality of service but also energy efficiency within the company. At the same time, hosting services use electricity more efficiently by outsourcing infrastructure to data centers and thereby reduce CO2 emissions. In addition, innovative cooling methods such as hot spot extraction, cold aisle containment or heat recovery systems reduce electricity requirements by up to 75% compared to conventional cooling systems
