iQRON is consistently expanding its telecommunications business field. The company was able to win Deutsche Telekom AG as its first cooperation partner for a series of field tests.
In its Telecommunications business unit, iQRON equips cell towers with small wind turbines to supply them with electricity. In combination with additional solar panels and storage units, a cell tower can be reliably supplied with electricity from renewable energy at many locations.
Michael Eckelmann, CEO of iQRON AG: "Small wind turbines combined with PV solar panels and a storage unit are well suited to reliably supply mobile phone masts with electricity. This allows cell tower operators to significantly reduce their environmental footprint and make an active contribution to global climate protection."
Deutsche Telekom is already aiming for 100 percent use of electricity from renewable energy sources from 2021. In this context, the telecommunications company is conducting innovation trials with various industry partners to explore new ways of improving the energy efficiency and sustainability of the technology.
iQRON AG is a German company based in Dresden (Saxony), which specializes in the manufacture and sale of small wind turbines in the range of power from 2.5 kW to 7 kW. These are suitable, for example, for the operation of mobile phone masts or water pumps, for the electrification of remote regions or also as a supplement to the existing power connection.
The company is currently preparing its IPO on the Euronext Paris stock exchange.It is 100 percent owned by the e²C³ GmbH & Co. KGaA, also based in Dresden.
