Shanghai Securities News, 11/22/07

At the first China Telecommunications Network Power-Saving Forum yesterday, Qian Hang of the Ministry of Information Industry (MII)'s Science and Technology Department indicated that the MII is currently working with communications operators to carry out a survey of power consumption reduction methods and also working on power-saving standards for the industry.

Qian said that 20 billion kilowatt hours of electricity are currently required annually to power China's core communications equipment, power systems, plant rooms and base stations. This is mainly due to communications equipment and plant rooms, with air-conditioning for Internet data center plant rooms alone accounting for about 45% of power use.
