Mobile network operators could become more energy efficient in the future if they adopt a GSMA scheme which has just been completed by Telefonica Germany and Nokia Siemens Networks.

The GSMA revealed that the two parties have successfully completed the Mobile Energy Efficiency (MEE) Optimisation project, which could be adopted by other networks in the future.

Telefonica Germany took part in the GSMA's MEE Benchmarking service, which enabled the subsidiary to lower its energy costs through the promotion of network efficiency. It has achieved a 14% increase in efficiency per connection in the last three years.

In addition, Telefonica Germany has started using the GSMA's MEE Optimisation service, which could save the company €1.8 million a year.

Gabriel Solomon, the GSMA's head of public policy, said: "We are delighted that this collaboration with Telefonica and Nokia Siemens Networks is a success and look forward to achieving the identified savings.

"The GSMA is focused on replicating this success with other networks around the world as we increasingly see that energy efficiency is a strategic priority for mobile network operators globally."
