Telefónica and Vertiv partner to deliver green tech solutions for connectivity

Vertiv and Telefónica are collaborating to improve energy efficiency with green tech infrastructure, which could save 45GWh annually. The global tech company Vertiv is expanding its partnership with Telefónica, a telecom giant with over 384 million customers, to launch a new initiative for energy efficiency. Enrique Blanco, Global CTIO at Telefónica, said that Vertiv is the right partner for this project, as it knows their infrastructure well and shares their vision of meeting high energy and emissions goals.

With an idea of powering efficiency, Vertiv and Telefónica’s joint vision sees Telefónica cut energy use per traffic unit (MWh/PB) by 90% by 2025, reduce Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 90% by 2030, and achieve net-zero emissions across its value chain by 2040. Blanco stated that “We are aware that the best kilowatt is the one we do not consume,” and also that they “.. don’t want to stop here, so we will extend this successful project to as many locations as possible.”

Vertiv and Telefónica are collaborating on a new model called Energy Savings as a Service (ESaaS). This innovative method requires a technology partner to invest in, operate and maintain critical infrastructure. Vertiv’s work in improving Telefónica’s main facilities is crucial for reducing energy consumption and emissions.

Pablo Ledesma, Director of Network, Services and IT Engineering and Operations at Telefónica Spain mentioned that: “We also want to improve the air conditioning systems throughout the technical telecoms sites to achieve maximum energy savings” and his counterpart, Karsten Winther, President for Vertiv in Europe, Middle East, and Africa underlined that “This pioneering model has been successfully implemented with Telefónica and is replicable in other sites and countries, allowing organisations to benefit from more efficiency and cost savings.”
