How Did Elisa Cut its Network’s Electricity Cost by 50%?

Meet us at MWC!

Learn how Elisa turned its network into a Virtual Power Plant and cut down its network's electricity costs by 50%

Strengthen Your Network, Optimise Your Costs

Elisa’s Distributed Energy Storage (DES) helps telecom operators and TowerCos to reduce electricity costs and OPEX by up to 50%.

Turn OPEX into Profit

Operators used to view backup batteries as a cost of reliable network operators. DES’ intelligent control turned Elisa’s backup batteries into a source of cost savings and new revenue.

Transform Your Network into a Virtual Power Plant

With DES, Elisa transformed its RAN into a Virtual Power Plant. DES controls the network’s backup batteries optimizing grid electricity consumption and earning new revenue from grid balancing services markets.

Network Resilience that Pays Back

DES has turned the economics of backup power upside-down and made it economical for Elisa to over-dimension it’s network’s batteries. During normal days, that extra capacity earns income for Elisa, but during storms and exceptional events, the backup capacity is there to power Elisa’s telecom network over extended periods when the customers need it the most.
