- Huawei Digital Power launches Smart VPP solution at the World ICT Energy Efficiency Summit

BORDEAUX, France, Oct. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The 7th World Summit on Energy Efficiency in ICT, titled "Green Site, Brighter Future", was held in Bordeaux, France on October 24. Leading operators, tower providers, research institutes, standardization organizations and other stakeholders from around the world gathered to exchange views on the green transformation of the telecommunications sector. It aimed to accelerate the construction of green and low-carbon networks and unleash the potential of sites through innovative modes such as virtual power plant (VPP).

In his keynote speech, Fang Liangzhou, vice president and chief marketing officer of Huawei Digital Energy, highlighted that although operators are under pressure from reducing emissions and increasing energy costs, they can take advantage of their physical facilities and resources energy to increase their income. For example, they can deploy distributed PV systems on site and connect site energy storage to VPP to stagger peaks or build electric vehicle charging facilities on existing sites. Ecological development has become a global consensus. The position of operators is changing from energy consumers to energy consumers, producers and facilitators. Huawei is committed to integrating digital and power electronics technologies to help operators succeed amid the global transition to carbon neutrality.

Huawei launches Smart VPPV solutionSeveral industries around the world are striving to be carbon neutral and turning to electrification, which brings volatility to the power grid. Meanwhile, the increasing share of renewable energy poses risks to the power grid. To address these issues, virtual power plant (VPP) can be deployed to aggregate and schedule distributed load resources, improving the stability of the power grid. VPPs have high requirements for the overall scale and responsiveness (speed, time segment, and accuracy) of the distributed resources accessed.

Relying on unique intelligent algorithms and high-performance hardware, Huawei launched an intelligent VPP solution. Offers:

Li Shaolong, vice president of Huawei's Digital Power Site Power Facility Domain, said Huawei's Smart VPP solution aims to help operators leverage existing resources at sites to realize new benefits. Huawei will collaborate with network aggregators, industry standards organizations and other VPP stakeholders to promote the business development of telecom sites serving VPP.

Green telecommunications sites: An industry consensus

Today, digital technologies have become part of everyday life, and network traffic continues to grow explosively. Without innovation, the energy consumption of operators' networks will increase considerably. The energy infrastructure of the digital industry needs to continually improve energy efficiency and increase the use of renewable and clean energy. The use of new technologies, products and solutions to build ecological sites has become common practice in the sector.

Li Shaolong, in a keynote speech titled "Huawei Intelligent Energy Solution Accelerates ICT Green Transformation", said that Huawei's intelligent energy solutions can help accelerate green transformation of ICT and help operators move from energy consumers to energy prosumers. As energy consumers, it is necessary to maximize energy efficiency and minimize energy consumption. Operators have abundant resources and can transform themselves into producers through PV deployment and participation of energy storage in VPP. In this way, the site's resources can be activated to increase revenue and contribute to achieving the "dual carbon" objective.

In the future, Huawei Digital Power will continue to help operators build green and low-carbon networks and collaborate with partners from different sectors to provide innovative solutions and facilitate green transformation.
