According to the report, the rise in telecom subscriptions worldwide has led to increased number of telecom tower installations. This has led to rising consumption of diesel.

An overall estimate of 80% telecom towers operate on diesel generators, thus resulting in high-energy costs. Therefore, using batteries in place of diesel generators help operators reduce costs related to fuel transport and generator maintenance.
The global telecom sector has grown significantly in the last 5-10 years. Wired telecom infrastructure has witnessed a revolution with the entry of cellular systems. Technological advances have made it essential for telecommunication networks to have a continuous supply of power in order to function effectively.

Uninterrupted power supply can be achieved through grid or diesel generator sets. However, growing concerns about environmental and climate change issues have fueled the need for telecom towers that utilize clean energy. Renewable power sources such as solar and wind are used to power these towers. In case of grid failure, batteries are used to provide backup as standby power to telecom towers.
