AbstractThe technological advancements in smart phones and their applications have rapidly raised the number of users and their data demands. To fulfil enlarged user's data requirements, Basestation (BS) engages their resources over prolong time intervals at the cost of increased power consumption. In parallel, operators are expanding network infrastructure by employing additional BSs which also adds in power consumption. This directly increases carbon emission (CO2) thus results in to more global warming. Therefore, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has become major contributor in global warming while mobile communication is one of the key contributors within ICT. This paper investigates reduced CO2 emission through decreased power consumption in LTE networks. Proposed energy saving scheme is validated through the analysis of various performance related parameters in MATLAB. Results have proven that proposed scheme reduces CO2 emission by 2.10 tonnes per BS.
