France to see 5G energy efficiency gains from 2023 in urban areas: Arcep

France is expected to achieve energy efficiency gains from 5G deployments in the most densely populated areas of the country from 2023, according to a study by local telecom regulator Arcep.

Arcep has published a study evaluating different energy consumption scenarios to assess the impact of 5G networks in France. The findings show that the deployment of 5G networks initially generates an increase in energy consumption.

The regulator noted, however, that 5G deployments should lead to very significant reductions in power usage over time.
