Telefonica Spain reduced CO2 emissions by 15,000 tons in 2020

Tuesday 24 August 2021 | 14:09 CET | News
Telefonica said numerous measures undertaken in 2020 prevented nearly 14,799 tons of CO2 from being emitted into the atmosphere by saving some 74GWh GWh of electricity consumption. Measures include installing around 600 solar panels on the roof of its national monitoring centre in Aravaca, withdrawing obsolete equipment and technologies, shutting down cells or low-traffic transmission nodes, installing 'free cooling' systems at base stations and introducing Energy Savings as a Service (ESaaS) models at data centres, among other actions.
