Huawei Unveils Top 10 Site Power Trends

Huawei Unveils Top 10 Site Power Trends
Shenzhen, China.

At the event, Huawei released a white paper on the 10 most powerful trends on the web. According to Yao Guan, President of Huawei Site Power Facility Domain, in 2015, 2022 was a tough year for telecom operators due to the global energy crisis and rising fuel and electricity prices. Against this backdrop, Huawei shares ten key energy trends for telecom operators to reduce energy consumption and achieve zero carbon emissions.

Trend 1: Digitization of energy

With the international agreement to achieve carbon neutrality, the ICT sector is to go green ('Green ICT') and help other sectors to do the same ('Green ICT'). By combining digital technology and power electronics, Huawei can control bits of watts, contributing to the low-carbon transformation of ICT and other industries.

Trend 2: Low Carbon Grid

To achieve carbon neutrality, telecom operators strive to build green and low-carbon networks throughout the entire life cycle, from network construction and power supply to operation.

The structure of the site is simplified by replacing the equipment units and cabinets with shelves. Photovoltaic systems are installed on site to reduce grid energy consumption. Digitizing a website helps with modernization and maintenance, reducing the number of site visits. Facilities with abnormal energy consumption and carbon emissions can be accurately identified in real time, reducing O&M costs and carbon emissions.

Trend 3: Use of "green" energy.

As new energy technologies develop and new business models emerge, businesses are diversifying their energy supplies and using clean energy sources such as solar, wind and hydrogen. By reducing the cost of clean energy, telecom operators will increase the share of self-built green power plants in addition to PPA.

Trend 4: Simplify the website

In traditional units, air conditioners are often placed in equipment rooms or closets that consume a large amount of energy, resulting in low efficiency and high electricity bills. To solve this problem, there is a tendency to simplify the structure of utilities by moving from rooms to cabinets and columns, which reduces energy consumption and carbon emissions.

Trend 5: High efficiency

Performance optimization is no longer limited to components. The emphasis shifts from editing to generational communication, transformation, storage, distribution and consumption. By mounting your site in a cabinet or pole, you can increase your visibility (site energy efficiency) by up to 97% and reduce your footprint. In addition, energy devices and wireless devices are integrated to properly control energy efficiency and optimize energy consumption.

Trend 6: Smart websites

Common websites usually use crappy components that don't support better management. An institution's energy consumption and carbon emissions are not visible, and energy savings and carbon reduction are not possible. In addition, site maintenance relies on manual site visits, resulting in high O&M costs. Smart site management and automated operation and maintenance can solve this problem by providing real-time data on energy efficiency and carbon emissions and improving site efficiency.

Trend 7: From telecom sites to general sites

Telecom sites can become public websites, providing electricity to the public and turning telecom operators into integrated service providers. Site service modes are further differentiated by offering new services such as virtual power generation (VPP), grid-based power supply and offset power rental to increase site revenues and unlock telecom site value.

Trend 8: Multi-functional architecture

When multiple power supplies are used, the facility's power supply must support different access modes. The shared space must meet the requirements of power supply for various installations that require multi-purpose outlets. So the versatile architecture will be the first.

Trend 9: Storage capacity + energy storage

In traditional telecommunication industries, power storage only provides backup power for communication equipment. Operators are now developing new business models such as peak load sharing and VPP. Energy storage is involved in energy system planning. Station batteries are transformed from a backup energy source to an integrated energy storage system.

Trend 10: Security and reliability

The security and reliability of websites depends on network and hardware security. As energy digitization intensifies, governments and industries are scrambling to prevent attacks and security threats. Several security features have been announced.
