WP2 – Energy Models
  • D2.1 – WP2 Intermediate Report[pdf]
    Abstract - With ICTs forecast to represent more than 50% of the world energy consumption and more than 20% of the humanity carbon footprint by 2030, the inclusion of renewable energy within mobile communication networks is a necessary step against global warming. SCAVENGE project is addressing this issue by proposing a sustainable paradigm for 5G mobile networks, where infrastructures and end-devices are powered with locally harvested energy resources. In the framework of Work Package 2, this document is dedicated to describe the main energy harvesting sources and the storage technologies used in real-life systems, with corresponding models from the literature. Moreover, in order to select the best technology for each network element, the principal energy consuming parts are described while modelling the consumption with respect to relevant network parameters. The report presents mainly a state-of-the-art survey on these topics and gives some perspectives for next period. The work is achieved by all the Early Stage Researchers (ERSs) in SCAVENGE project.
  • D2.2 – Energy Model Definition
WP3 – Sustainable Networking
  • D3.1 – WP3 Intermediate Report[pdf]
    Abstract - 5G is currently being standardized in 3GPP and the Energy Efficiency (EE) is considered to be one of its main design principles. The standardization work for EE goes currently towards providing more precise definitions and systematic methods for Control and Management (C&M) of overall EE. The standard will provide definitions of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for various networking cases, various measurement methods, and C&M framework based on self-organized network (SON) solutions. This work goes in parallel with the EE improvements in mobile Core Network (CN) and Radio Access Network (RAN). In order to define the architecture framework for Energy Harvesting (EH) networks the work in WP3 studies various EE procedures for CN & RAN and EH use cases. This study concentrates also on various items related to EE of future devices and IoT. The report presents an overview of these topics and the corresponding activities carried out by the Early Stage Researchers (ERSs) including a state of the art, various EH network scenarios and plan for the future work.
