10 emerging trends in Telecom Energy according to Huawei
Key point: Against the backdrop of diversified power inputs and outputs, the multi-pattern architecture will become a trend.
Currently, most power supplies do not support multi-pattern input or output. Different energy conversion devices need to be combined into one system, which has a large size, low efficiency, and multiple interfaces for maintenance. In addition, the device cost and O&M cost are high. The multi-pattern architecture features higher system density and efficiency, simpler deployment, and smarter O&M and is expected to be popularized in the telecom energy industry in the future.

Trend 9: Higher Efficiency
Key point: Rectifier efficiency will be further pushed to the extreme. Site-level and network-level efficiency will attract more attention.
Currently, the efficiency of telecom power systems is mostly improved at the rectifier level. The rectifier efficiency of mainstream vendors is 90% to 98%. In the future, the maximum efficiency will be further improved from 98% to 99% (translating into 50% less rectifier loss). However, the energy consumption of the entire site mainly occurs in the power generation system, temperature control system, and power supply line. Operators will pay more attention to the improvement of site-level and network-level energy efficiency.
Trend 10: Trustworthiness
Key point: Trustworthiness becomes an integral part of telecom energy.
