With the advent of the 5G era, mobile Internet and cloud computing services are booming. Sites are facing difficult network evolution and increasing OPEX as a result of surging power consumption. In addition, data centers are witnessing explosive growth in computing power and energy consumption. How to reduce energy consumption using new technologies and process more information with less energy is a major concern of the industry.

"Huawei actively works with global operators and industry organizations to promote energy conservation and emission reduction in the telecom industry," said Zhou Taoyuan, President of Huawei Network Energy Product Line, "Through technological innovation, Huawei continuously improves energy efficiency and introduces clean energy to telecom sites and data centers. This promotes the replacement of fossil energy by clean energy and reduces energy costs and carbon dioxide emissions, which is conducive to achieving global sustainable development goals."
