Leading The Energy Evolution
eVolution Networks is a leading innovator in energy efficiency. Our responsive and adaptive
Smart Energy Solution (SES) software effectively right-sizes mobile networks and data centers
using Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning. It matches supply with actual demand by
reducing energy consumption and electricity costs during off-peak periods by up to 35% - all
while maintaining Quality of Service. SES has already been implemented in mobile networks
worldwide and results indicate that, applied across the sector, it could reduce global energy
consumption by more than 2.5%.
We believe that this worldview is no longer sustainable, and that software innovation can drive the evolution of the world's energy profile.
