The 5G industry may mean greater possibilities in communications but 5G base stations are notorious for their big appetite for energy – far more than conventional base stations (e.g., 4G). It’s why countries utilising 5G networks have been welcoming new business opportunities associated with the move towards net-zero carbon emissions. Wanting to find a solution for everyone, Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) has formulated an applied technology initiative that allows 5G networks to save on energy big time.

Specifically, MOEA has supported the country’s foremost technology research arm, the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) in the Research and Development (R&D) of 5G energy-saving private network solutions. Together with a private entity, ITRI is introducing 5G Open RAN (O-RAN), a unique way for 5G base stations to save energy. The product debuted online in this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC).
