Network energy performance

5G has been deployed globally in over 200 live networks. As we move towards 2025, Ericsson believes it is possible to scale up 5G, while simultaneously reducing total network energy consumption.

Enabling Net Zero

The demand on mobile networks will continue to grow and without action, energy use and related emissions will too. In order to reach Net Zero, it is important to reduce energy consumption and break the energy curve.

Breaking the energy curve

Energy consumption in mobile networks has increased over time. About the same increase with each new mobile generation. We must advance how we plan, deploy and operate mobile networks to break the upgoing trajectory of energy consumption.
