Electricity use and management in Türk Telekom
Within the scope of efforts to reduce electricity consumption, Türk Telekom has implemented a number of savings and efficiency projects since 2013 and succeeded in reducing its electricity consumption by 8% between 2013-2020.
Despite the Covid-19 pandemic which threatened all humanity in 2020, Türk Telekom, pressing ahead unwaveringly with its efficiency projects, increased its installed power to 2.35 MW with its investments in the field of renewable energy. The Company also commissioned 148 low energy consumption free cooling box systems in 117 locations throughout Turkey for the efficient cooling of the system halls.
There was a limited increase in electricity consumption in 2020 compared to 2019 because of the increase in data usage on the back of the strong growth in the subscriber base, the increase in data centre loads, and increased FTTX installations.
