Intelligent Energy Management for Mobile Cells: UNIBERG Starts Research Project Funded by Schleswig-Holstein Government
UNIBERG is pleased to announce the commencement of a new funding project in collaboration with the Schleswig-Holstein government, scheduled to begin in March 2023.
Titled “Intelligent Energy Management for Mobile Cells,” the project aims to optimize the energy consumption of 5G mobile cells and based on this, also prioritize renewable energy sources for their operation.
With the global rise in 5G technology adoption, there has been a corresponding increase in power consumption and related costs. Mobile network operators are grappling with rising energy expenses associated with maintaining mobile cells. The rollout of 5G necessitates a higher density of mobile cells, significantly amplifying power consumption per cell. Additionally, there is a growing demand for environmentally sustainable mobile cell sites driven by socially responsible investors, mobile operators, and the general public.
The funding project by UNIBERG aims to address these challenges. To achieve this, the project leverages Artificial Intelligence to predict network usage and adjust the performance parameters of individual and networked mobile cells accordingly. This strategic energy management approach enables efficient and forward-looking utilization of available energy sources, with a particular focus on renewable energies.
A press conference is scheduled for November 17, 2023, at 14:00 in Kiel. The event will be attended by Dirk Schrödter, the Minister of Digitalization for the state of Schleswig-Holstein. During the conference, UNIBERG will provide in-depth insights into the project’s objectives and present preliminary outcomes.
