The telecommunications firm today (Feb 21) confirmed the clean energy shift, having partnered with GenCell on the joint lab testing of a hydrogen-based backup solution.
Dubbed GenCell BOX™, the solution was tested at GenCell’s Tel Aviv facility under the supervision of Deutsche Telekom to showcase the capabilities of hydrogen technologies within the telecoms sector.
With initial tests now complete, the duo will focus on the installation and the integration of the GenCell BOX™ at a real-life mobile site.
Rami Reshef, CEO GenCell, said, “GenCell is extremely pleased to cooperate with global telecom leader Deutsche Telekom and happy that they recognise the benefits that GenCell’s existing and future technologies will bring to their network.
“Our goal is to leverage hydrogen, ammonia and fuel cell technologies to enable telecom providers to achieve their climate objectives.
“At the same time, we want to ensure that they maintain the highest levels of operational and cost efficiency and continue to deliver on their customers’ quality of service expectations.”
Claudia Nemat, Deutsche Telekom Board Member for Technology and Innovation, added, “Ensuring an integrated management of clean, efficient and reliable power is key for sustainable mobile site operations.
“Through our trials with partners we explore how intelligent solutions will enable us to efficiently harness the mix of green energy while optimizing power supply and demand at mobile sites.”
