This smart grid technology improves renewable energy efficiency and battery life (reducing capital expenditure), while enabling remote control and predictive maintenance in the cloud (reducing operating expenses); in short, transforming your tower into an efficient energy services centre.
This system replaces the zero-intelligence electrical panel with electronic mini-switches capable of monitoring and controlling loads (RF transmitters and receivers, lighting, air conditioning, heating), generators (PV, wind, diesel, local grid) and storage units (battery packs).
The overall benefit for 5G and Orange is to change the paradigm of towers from a “cost center” model to a “green energy service” model ensuring resilient communications and supporting the local community network.
Types of accompaniment
SGC has integrated the 5G program, season 1, of Orange Fab France in 2020.
