Tele2 said it is launching a project to make its 4G network more energy efficient through a range of technical updates and innovations, as well as participation in the global network SooGreen (service-oriented optimisation of green mobile networks). Sweden has a plan to reduce total energy consumption by 20 percent by 2020, and more than 50 percent of the country's energy should come from renewable sources. At Tele2 Sweden, the nationwide 4G network accounts for about 70 percent of total energy consumption.
