  • Energy efficiency solutions for the mobile network evolution towards 5G: an operator perspective

    This paper focuses on techniques or actions that the network operator should consider for the mobile network's evolution towards 5G from a sustainability point of view. To this end, the energy consumption of the Radio Access Network (RAN) is assessed when considering different load conditions (obtained by means of actual daily traffic profiles extracted from the live network) and different yearly traffic forecasts. An overview of different "what-if" scenarios towards 2020 and beyond is provided and energy consumption of the network is assessed by considering evolutionary Power Models (PMs) of future Base Stations (BSs) related to different Radio Access Technologies (RATs). Together with evolutionary PMs, many Energy Efficiency (EE) features that may be implemented within the network are also considered, with particular focus on EE features evaluated at higher time scale (from minutes to years), i.e., related to progressive network renewal with traffic steering options and legacy RATs' phase-off policies. These have been evaluated by using a software tool fed by actual traffic profiles, aiming at assessing EE performance at network level, by also considering the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) EE specification ES 203 228, which is based on homogeneous clusters' evaluations that may be extrapolated at country level, providing useful information on the possible evolutions of the mobile networks in the view of future 5G systems.

  • Enabling Technologies on Cloud of Things for Smart Healthcare

    Nowadays research is heading towards the integration of cloud computing and Internet of Things thus creating a Cloud of Things (CoT). This combination generates a new paradigm for pervasive and ubiquitous computing. However, reliable CoT-based services, particularly, highly delay-sensitive services, such as, healthcare, require energy-efficient CoT architectures. Considerable efforts have been proposed to improve the efficiency of CoT architectures. This paper analyses CoT architectures and platforms, as well as the implementation of CoT in the context of smart healthcare. Subsequently, the paper explains some related issues of CoT, including the lack of standardization. Moreover, it focuses on energy efficiency with an in depth analysis of the most relevant proposals available in the literature. An evaluation of all the energy efficiency solutions investigated in this paper shows there is still a need to improve energy efficiency, especially regarding QoS and performance.

  • Building energy consumption modeling at urban scale: three case studies in Europe for residential buildings

    In urban contexts, the use of energy in buildings is one of the main causes of greenhouse gas emissions. The reduction of energy-use in buildings could be one of the main drivers to improve the sustainability, livability and quality of urban environment, together with the production of energy from the available renewable sources. To achieve energy sustainability in the most critical high-density urban contexts, it is necessary to optimize: the energy consumptions compatibility of different users; the distribution of heat, for example through the district heating network; the use of all urban spaces, such as building envelopes and urban surfaces, to produce energy from the available renewable sources. The energy models at urban scale are a complex issue as they should be simplified to be applied on a vast territory. Indeed, detailed information are not given at territorial scale and short time of simulation are preferable; however, information should be detailed enough to describe properly the energy consumption of the whole urban environment from building to urban scale. Therefore, energy models should take into account also the urban morphology, people's behavior, social and economic conditions, local and national regulation, and the use of outdoor public spaces. The challenge of this work is to present three different energy-use models, to compare their characteristics and to find the best features of an "optimum" model to analyze and represent energy resources, future scenarios, energy efficiency solutions and best energy policies. The aim is to drive a smarter use of energy, matching it with the available and more efficient energy sources to help also public administrations in defining policies adapted to the real buildings heritage. The urban energy models can also be applied in future climatic scenarios, to evaluate the impact of climate change in the energy demand/supply of buildings, as well as in the potential of retrofit scenarios.

  • Planning of the optimal energy mix for smart cities

    The development of smart energy systems infrastructure has been initiated with deployment of smart meters from the beginning of this millennium. The smart grids incorporated into a hybrid system with optimal energy mix are partly solution to the severe environmental problems, the scarcity of fossil fuels and the constant growth of energy needs. The optimal energy mix contains renewable energy sources, energy efficiency solutions, and energy storage options. In more complex multi energy systems the monitoring and control of the all energy flows (electricity, heat, gas) has been crucial for the evolution to the smart grids as a part of the wider smart energy systems infrastructure, especially in smart cities. In this paper the three step investment minimization problem of the total costs for the instalment of the smart energy system has been formulated. The results show yearly electricity and heat balance (and even hourly) obtained using HOMER software tool. The developed model together with available software can support the decision making in planning phase of the smart energy subsystem.

  • Simulations on 130 nm technology 6T SRAM cell for Near-Threshold operation

    In the field of IC technologies, there is a constant demand for energy efficiency solutions. Near-Threshold Computing (NTC) is a technique that reduces energy consumption of IC devices, but it also makes them slower. We are applying NTC to a device constructed in 130 nm CMOS technology in the purpose of designing reasonably priced low-power IC devices suitable for low performance applications. In this paper, we concentrate on how a conventional 6T SRAM cell behaves in NTC use. Memory consumes a considerable portion of area and energy of a common IC system, and therefore it is a good target for optimizing with low-energy solutions. Applying NTC to 6T SRAM is not as straightforward as merely using lower supply voltage and slower clock speed; transistor sizes inside the memory cell have to be carefully considered to make the memory reliable. Two inner NMOS transistors in 6T SRAM cell play an important role; by doubling their widths from the minimum, the reliability and the static energy consumption are improved considerably. Overall, NTC makes it possible to achieve notable savings in the energy consumption of 6T SRAM cell.
