Flavio Cucchietti - Energy Efficiency and ICT: short term needs long term opportunities

  1. 1. Energy Efficiency and ICT: short term needs long terms opportunities
  2. 2. Telecom Italia and its Network …some numbers … Thousands diesel gensets 49 .ooo battery strings >20MAh@48V
  3. 3. (*) Second highest national energy user. Energy used equivalent to the yearly production of a II Generation nuclear plant. Cooling 550 GWh TLC 1290 GWh ICT 160 GWh 509 GAS and Thermal plants 16 Co/trigeneration plants 2.200 (*) 1.900 450 Yearly consumption of Electrical Energy IT Railw. Telecom Italia Other TLC Operators 4.300 Yearly consumption of GAS: 32 Mil. Regione Val d’Aosta Telecom Italia 99 Mil. Posts 20 Mil . S. Raffaele Hospital Milan GWh GWh GWh GWh mc mc mc 26 Mil. mc mc Posts Energy consumption (E.E. 2,2 TWh, Gas 32 Mil. mc) Offices 200 GWh
  4. 4. -85 GWh <ul><li>Efficiency i the sites </li></ul><ul><li>Switch off/compactingold equipment </li></ul><ul><li>More efficient lighting </li></ul><ul><li>Alternative energies </li></ul><ul><li>Segregation/compacting equipment rooms </li></ul><ul><li>Efficient use of offices </li></ul><ul><li>Next Gen. Data Centres, virtualization … </li></ul><ul><li>BroadBand extension: ADSL, Switching, Rete intelligente, Core network….) </li></ul><ul><li>MobileNetwork extension </li></ul><ul><li>OLO/ULL </li></ul><ul><li>Data Centres </li></ul><ul><li>Start of the NGN2 </li></ul>Values in GWh Energy consumption evolution 2008-2010 2010 2.171 2.256 2007 405 INCREASE 490 SAVING
  5. 5. Energy consumption trend – wireline network E TOT E TLC Fixed network domain Source: Telecom Italia End user appliances Power Consumption <ul><li>FUTURE  high priority on energy </li></ul><ul><li>Last decade  20% reduction, but strong OPEX increase due to increased energy cost </li></ul><ul><li>’ 80-’90  Digital switching/ISDN = network consumption X 4 </li></ul>‘ 84 ‘ 88 ‘ 92 ‘ 96 GWh Years ‘ 98 ‘ 10 ‘ 08 Start of network digitalization End of network digitalization E TOT: total energy consumption from mains (TLC equipment, cooling, ausiliary systems) E TLC: energy consumption of TLC equipment New challenge on energy saving Need of further actions on TLC equipments Energy consumption became a Key Issue Start ADSL deployment Actions on cooling and energy systems
  7. 7. Energy burden to the Customer <ul><li>Minimize the consumption with reference to the single function supported </li></ul><ul><li>Enforce the lowest power state whenever possible </li></ul><ul><li>Design to optimize end of life management </li></ul><ul><li>Pursue these goals both internally and towards Std Bodies & Governments </li></ul>ENERGY EFFICIENT CUSTOMERS Smart Grids, Sensor Networks, BroadBand evolution … = Further ICT to the Client!!! While reducing the load to the Operator, NGN could greatly increase the energy expense to the Customer (much more ICT to the client) We have (and can) act now!
  8. 8. ICT – part of the “problem” and of its “SOLUTION” NEGATIVE 3,5% (could be greater!) POSITIVE ~15% ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN OTHER SECTORS
  9. 9. <ul><li>Products are global and need huge investments </li></ul><ul><li>Standardization is the key to guarantee: </li></ul><ul><li> earlier availability, quality and affordable costs </li></ul>Wanna get results soon? ….. Go Standard! ….. Connect STD with public and private research! <ul><li>… but is the Standardization arena ready for this challenge? </li></ul><ul><li>Strong need for coordinated action within and among Standardization Bodies </li></ul><ul><li>To reach the 2020 objectives it is urgent to obtain results </li></ul><ul><li>Regulators/Governments need to play their role </li></ul><ul><li>… too often research results do not become products </li></ul><ul><li>Need to promote linking and cross fertilization between Research and STD </li></ul><ul><li>Apply it systematically , starting from the EC funded projects </li></ul><ul><li>Review procedures/rules of the Standardization organizations to enable it </li></ul>EC Codes of Conduct EC Standardization Mandate M/362
  10. 10. Standardization fragmentation and lack of coverage GeSI EE IOCG Standardization Map – December 2009 Source: http:// =Lmkk%2fMfiZ9Q%3d&tabid=72 <ul><li>Fragmented Standardization!  objectives </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Clarify current state of the art </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Define coordinated strategy </li></ul></ul>Lack of Standardization Risk of inconsistent and conflicting Standardization
  11. 11. GeSI hot standardiztion action areas Customer networking and equipment sustainability goals (less equipment; reuse; optimize …) Standard external power supply Mobile (and small handheld) common charger Need for unique, standardized charger for all mobile phones (and other small devices too). Support ITU Rec. L1000 development. Few standardized power supply types to power Home Networking devices (and other): EU BroadBand Code of Conduct Home networking equipment requirements Propose energy improvement goals to be inserted into the new EU BB CoC Support harmonization among the world regional initiatives (EU and EPA/Energy Star) Customer networking and equipment energy efficiency goals (less user energy usage) Data Centre Act towards more environmental friendly IT equipment through the EU Data Centre CoC Radio Base Stations Cooperate towards the definition pf RBS testing methods and objectives (What you can measure you can improve!) ICT networks energy efficiency goals (less network energy usage) Energy Efficiency and Sustainability issues Area Action Point Description
  12. 12. Not only a service provider – customer issue Source:
  13. 13. EU actions … Code of Conducts GLOBAL STANDARDIZATION The BB CoC is worldwide reference for Industries and Operators It paves the way for much greater Energy Efficiency for Clients and Service Providers September 2010 GeSI CoC Event Bruxelles New BB CoC (V.4) is being finalized
  14. 14. The ICT Sector is moving Source:
  15. 15. Let’s move all together! <ul><li>Showing that the ICT can contribute within its own sector </li></ul><ul><li>Coordinating actions to accelerate the availability of more efficient ICT </li></ul><ul><li>Enabling important and measurable savings now </li></ul><ul><li>Paving the way for future technologies and services that will deliver even more </li></ul><ul><li>… then we will be more credible towards the “98%” </li></ul>It is URGENT to develop an energy efficient and low carbon society Let’s make it happen! It can be reached through coordination and cooperation
