Renewable energy from solar and wind power could be used to mitigate soaring energy costs as operators invest billions in building out 5G sites

Ericsson and Deutsche Telekom are testing the use of wind power to mitigate soaring energy costs as telecoms operators invest in building out 5G networks.

Over the past year the trial has used solar panels to provie part of the energy requirements for a 5G site in Germany, and now a wind turbine has been added into the mix.

The technology could find interest from power-intensive industries amidst a dramatic rise in energy costs.

The project began a year ago with twelve square metres of solar panels, supplying about 10 percent of the site’s energy requirements.
