NCC mulls framework on clean energy sourcing for telecoms sector

The Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, has contemplated a framework to encourage clean energy sourcing in the telecommunications sector.

The Executive Vice Chairman of the Commission, Prof. Umar Danbatta, disclosed this at the industry roundtable in Kano on Wednesday.

The theme of the event is “Refocusing academic research toward Alternative Clean Energy: Panacea to paucity of energy in the telecommunications industry”.

Danbatta said that the framework would serve as a guide for telecom service providers to adopt clean and sustainable energy sources, reducing their carbon footprints and contributing to greener future.

He expressed the belief that the policy would not only benefit the environment but drive innovation and create new business opportunities in the industry.

He, however, said that  achieving this objective would require collaboration with the academics and other stakeholders, who are encouraged to contribute through research findings.

Danbatta said that the Commission needed the expertise, knowledge and insight of the academics to guide it in developing feasible alternative sources of energy that the industry can leverage for a sustainable energy supply.
