Ericsson said its Smart Connected Site solution, including Enclosure 6150, will empower Ooredoo Qatar to simultaneously manage various energy sources, including lithium-ion batteries, the traditional power grid, and diesel generators. This hybrid energy management system will play a key role in optimizing the utilization of these energy sources based on their availability.

Real-time Monitoring and Control

In its release, Ericsson highlighted that the Smart Connected Site solution offers real-time monitoring and control capabilities. It collects, aggregates, and communicates data on radio, power, enclosures, site materials, and operating status.

This functionality will assist Ooredoo Qatar in effectively managing and controlling energy consumption, resulting in a significant reduction in reliance on diesel generators and, consequently, a substantial decrease in carbon emissions.

Aligning with Qatar's Vision 2030

Ooredoo Qatar said the implementation of the Ericsson Smart Connected Site solution is a key step in its sustainability journey, aligning with Qatar's Vision 2030, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent by 2023.

Trial Results

According to the statement, trials involving the hybrid energy management system, which combines power from diesel generators and lithium-ion batteries, have yielded results, resulting in up to 66 percent daily reduction in diesel generator runtime, which translates to a 55 percent decrease in fuel consumption.

This outcome is estimated to equate to a reduction of approximately 3 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per month per site and a 50 percent decrease in the number of site visits.
