Dresden, 28. September 2020.
iQron is consistently expanding its business in the field of telecom towers: The company was able to win Deutsche Telekom AG as a cooperation partner for a series of field tests.
iQron will equip telecom towers of the Deutsche Telekom Group with small wind turbines in order to supply them with electricity. In combination with and additionally to solar panels and storage units, small wind turbines are going to become an integral part of so called “hybrid-systems” allowing telecom towers to be reliably supplied with electricity from renewable energy sources at many locations.
Michael Eckelmann, CEO of iQron AG, states: “Small wind turbines, combined with PV solar cells and a storage unit, are well suited to reliably supply telecommunication towers with electricity. This enables operators of telecommunication towers to significantly reduce their ecological footprint and make an active contribution to global climate protection”.
The Deutsche Telekom Group aims to utilize and produce 100 percent of its electricity from renewable energy sources from as early as 2021 already. In this context, the telecommunications company is conducting innovation trials with various industrial partners to explore new ways of improving the energy efficiency and sustainability of the technology.
