Telia Company, a Swedish telecommunications operator, has announced changes to its top management that will put sustainability at the forefront of the company’s agenda.   In March, Ola Rembe, a former executive at Ericsson, will become Senior Vice President and Head of Communications, Brand and Sustainability at Telia. This newly created position combines these different roles for the first time.   When it comes to sustainability, Telia is regarded as one of the telecom companies with more progressive thinking. The corporation has established specific goals to achieve a value chain that will be  carbon neutral by 2030 by at least halving greenhouse gas emissions and offsetting the remainder.   In addition, Telia has mandated that its suppliers set science-based goals, and last year it was disclosed that 29% of the suppliers participating in  its supply chain emissions had already done so, with a further 21% in the process of receiving…

Orange has announced a partnership with Reservoir Sun, a pioneer in self-supply solar energy systems. The aim of this arrangement is to build a photovoltaic power plant at the major satellite communications station Bercenay-en-Othe (Aube), in order to provide environmentally favorable outcomes for France and Europe.   The communications corporation is shifting its usage toward renewable energy sources and speeding up the process by utilizing solar energy in its tertiary and technical facilities. The solar energy farm is scheduled to be completed in 2025.   A surface area of 50,000 square meters will be occupied by the farm. The power plant, which has a 5 MW capacity, 1 MW for self-consumption and 4 MW for reinjection, will provide 20% of the site’s energy requirements. Additionally, using low-carbon energy from the sun will reduce CO2 emissions by nearly 100 tons per year.   An environmental impact analysis study will be conducted…

The successful demonstration of renewable energy sources in a 5G mobile site has been confirmed by Deutsche Telekom and Ericsson. Both companies collaborated to convert a live radio station utilizing a management system to optimize power supply and demand by leveraging solar and wind energy.   The site in Dittenheim, 120 kilometers north of Munich, has been partially powered by solar panels for over a year as part of a prior collaboration between the two enterprises. Wind turbines have now been installed as part of a new trial to increase the site’s renewable energy capability. Acting as a second renewable energy power source, the wind turbine is capable of providing up to 5kW of additional electricity. When the conditions are ideal, the facility may run entirely on renewable energy, eliminating the requirement for use of the electrical power grid.   The Ericsson Power System, which handles the two power sources…
