Japan Turns Its Mobiles Green

Japan Turns Its Mobiles Green

 

If there is one country really making inroads into reducing its CO2 levels, it has to be Japan.  They take CO2 free mobile phones very seriously.  And if someone was going to take the initiative, it looks as if it will be the Japan, who will be the first country to power its mobile phone network and turn everyone's mobile phone green - entirely by using renewable energy’s.  All those mobile phones, becoming environmentally friendly, sounds cool to me.

It seems the power down disasters caused by the natural disasters such as the quake and the tsunami earlier in 2011, has forced mobile phone operator NTT DoCoMo to look at finding alternative ways of powering its masts network. It seems the power down disasters caused by the natural disasters such as the quake and the tsunami earlier in 2011, has forced mobile phone operator NTT DoCoMo to look at finding alternative ways of powering its masts network. 

As the biggest mobile phone operator with some 90,000 relay stations around the country, these new green transmission stations will run on eco-energy such as solar, wind or biomass.  It's not just consumers who will benefit from greener communication, but it means greener business communication CO2 free as well.

It’s also seen as an anti-quake measure for sure as well as to stop the widespread blackout as faced during the crisis earlier, but also one that looks to reduce the Company’s resource use and make certain headway as to their environmental impact. The plan is to start building 10 renewable energy facilities to supplement their present power supply from 2012.
