Europe braces for cell phone network outages due to energy shortage next winter

Cell phones in Europe could go down this winter due to an energy crisis that could affect much of Europe's mobile network.

The huge reduction in supplies of Russian gas to Europe due to the conflict in Ukraine has led to a scare of power outages, sending Europe's telecommunications industry into a panic, Reuters reported, adding that experts in the telecom sector fear a harsh winter will put serious strain on their infrastructure.

Utilities and government officials in the European Union are now trying to contain the effects of such a disaster.

There are currently not enough backup systems in Europe to cope with any widespread power shortages, which will likely lead to cell phone outages, telecom industry representatives told Reuters.

Most European countries do not have generators to support emergency power for extended periods of time.

Countries in the EU are trying to devise a plan to keep telecommunications running even as power shortages overload backup battery systems installed throughout Europe.

France, which will face the major problem of shutting down several nuclear power plants for maintenance in the coming months, is trying to take the lead on the issue.

Reuters reported that telecom companies have already discussed the issue with French electricity distributor Enedis over the summer.

Enedis told Reuters that all regular customers will be treated equally in the event of a serious power outage.

The French utility said it was able to isolate parts of the power grid to continue supplying key customers such as hospitals, strategic industries and the military.

Some Enedis employees said it was up to local authorities to also put telecommunications infrastructure on the priority list in the event of a major power outage.

The French Federation of Telecommunications (FFT), which represents telecom companies such as Orange, Bouygues Telecom and Altice's SFR, put the blame on Enedis for failing to ensure that the antennas of cell phone masts were exempt from a possible power outage.

France has about 62,000 cell phone masts in operation, but the industry does not have the resources to provide all antennas with new backup batteries, FFT president Liza Bellulo told Reuters.

A European telecommunications crisis
Meanwhile, U.K. telecommunications company BT Group recently told the Financial Times that it will not need more emergency power for the winter, but was still assessing which non-critical systems could be switched off to save energy.

European telecom executives told Reuters that they are evaluating their networks to reduce additional power consumption and upgrading their equipment with energy-efficient cell phone towers.

Phone companies will install new software to optimize traffic flow, be able to put cell phone masts in a " sleep mode" when not in use, and use different frequency bands.

They said they will work with their government agencies to ensure that contingency plans will be fully operational to ensure critical services in time for winter.

Telecom companies in these countries said they will cooperate with government agencies in case of prolonged power shortages.

Sweden's communications regulator PTS will finance the purchase of portable refueling stations and mobile base stations to handle prolonged power outages, while Germany's Deutsche Telekom will use its diesel-powered mobile emergency systems during prolonged power outages.

Italian communications companies, in turn, are hoping that the brand-new Italian government will exempt them from energy savings during a mandatory power rationing.

European phone makers Nokia and Ericsson told Reuters that they are cooperating with mobile network operators in hopes of mitigating the effects of possible power shortages.
