In this case, Nokia can't reduce the area of the panel, which has a lot of small antennas. But it got rid of the cooling fins, which take up a lot of space. At one apartment building in Helsinki, they're even driving the waste heat down into the building to heat up the common areas; between lower power requirements and heat reuse, that's an 80 percent reduction in carbon usage for the base station site – Source PC Mag
