Format: Panel Session

This session discusses challenges and opportunities for alternative power to equipment or applications in locations with no access to the traditional power grid. Resilient and constant energy is key to keeping communications systems working properly both on and off the grid. Weather, location, infrastructure density, incidents and disasters, peak and off-peak timing, number of devices, security or simply a lack of fuel supply can all affect your network’s efficacy, as recent events such as the war in Ukraine and Texas power crisis have shown.

In this panel, experts share renewable energy options and power backup systems that work, including fuel cells, batteries, solar, wind, green hydrogen and nanogrids. Hear about modernizing infrastructure for resiliency, reliability and quality without fossil fuels or connecting the grid.
