TLDR: Advances in technology have the potential to contribute to energy efficiency and support the transition to a Net Zero future. Digital technologies can reduce global emissions by over 15% in sectors such as energy, industry, agriculture, construction, and transport. However, digital technologies themselves consume a significant amount of energy and contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. Telefónica, a telecommunications company, is taking steps to minimize its energy consumption and maximize its use of renewable sources. Initiatives include modernizing networks, deploying 5G, utilizing power-saving features and AI/ML platforms, implementing energy-efficient cooling systems, and using more environmentally friendly fuels. Various Telefónica initiatives and solutions, such as connectivity, digital workplaces, cloud computing, intelligent transport, and energy efficiency solutions, are helping to advance the green transition and reduce energy consumption. Technology has the potential to optimize resources, improve energy management, and contribute to a future with less energy consumption.
