Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, recently stated that without a strong Sino-European partnership, it is impossible to “shape the world of tomorrow.” Abraham Liu, the chief representative of Huawei’s agency in the EU, agreed with this, saying that the partnership’s mantra also extends to the gradual transition to carbon neutrality. He warned that despite the global economic slowdown caused by COVID19, climate change has not stopped and after a temporary lull, the mission level is rising rapidly again.
This is one of the key messages Liu wants to convey to mark the European Green Week in 2021, which is the EU’s annual “Green Festival”, which will last one week from June 7. This week, Huawei hosted a series of events at various offices in Europe to raise awareness of global climate challenges. Liu believes that Huawei is fully capable of playing its role in helping the European Union achieve the goals of the EU’s widely acclaimed Green Agreement, which described it as a “groundbreaking and bold policy.” He believes that the realization of a carbon-free future in the next ten years requires “five key technologies.” They are environmentally friendly and carbon-free grids driven by green energy, green connectivity, green digitization, and artificial intelligence.
In terms of “green energy”, it is predicted that renewable energy, mainly solar and wind energy, will become the fastest-growing energy source. Huawei is committed to “building a clean energy power generation system based on solar energy storage” and wind energy. In terms of green connectivity, the company is at the forefront of all-optical technology. “Our optical fiber printing technology,” he said, “can “print” 1,000 fibers on an A4 paper-sized backplane. This means that one computer can now do the work of nine computers, and in a traditional environment, energy consumption is reduced by 60%. ”
Speaking of green digitization, your company is a pioneer in optimizing technology, and intelligence helps data centers to “learn” to save energy. “When we talk about using bits to manage watts, that’s what we mean.” Huawei also collaborated with the nonprofit Rainforest Connection to create a sound monitoring system dubbed “Guardians of Nature” that collects sound data for artificial intelligence. illegal logging.

Becomes a “zero carbon grid” Liu predicts that energy consumption of global communication sites will reach 66 billion kWh, representing 2025 In 2012, it accounted for about 2% of the world’s total energy consumption.
Traditional wireless base stations are considered to be around 60% energy efficient. By replacing the computer room with an outdoor cabinet, Huawei can increase this number to 90%. “This is a great step forward,” he declared.
Liu will describe these and other “smart solutions” initiatives as part of Huawei’s contribution to Green Week in an online forum on June 8 and explain how he believes ICT innovation can help achieve carbon neutrality. The panel discussion also included Charlie McConalogue, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Oceans of Ireland, and Ilias Iakovidis, Green Digital Transformation Consultant of the European Commission.
“We call on all technology companies to support and actively participate in the fight against climate change, which is vital to the destiny of mankind.“

Liu believes that new technologies are necessary to reduce carbon emissions, while ICT Technology will play an increasingly important role in this process. “We call on all technology companies to support and actively participate in the fight against climate change, which is vital to the destiny of mankind,” he said. Liu believes that technology companies like him hold the key to unlocking the potential of leverage, allowing other participants to fully release their emission reduction potential.
According to a report by the World Meteorological Organization, although carbon emissions have temporarily declined due to the global economic slowdown and lockdown, emission levels are recovering rapidly. Liu said: “As the economy begins to recover, we must ask ourselves: How do we find opportunities to improve the global ecology and achieve carbon neutrality?”
Praised Europe as a leader in the fight against climate change and noted that in 2019, On the fourth anniversary of the adoption of the Paris Agreement, the European Union committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050. In fact, By 2020, 38% of the EU’s electricity will be generated by wind, solar and other renewable energy sources, surpassing fossil fuel power generation for the first time. “Furthermore, many European companies are global role models when it comes to pursuing sustainable development,” he said.
Liu added, “As a provider of ICT infrastructure and smart devices, Huawei strongly believes that ICT is becoming an important enabling technology for a greener world.” But he went on to caution that the cruel fact is that no one can solve the global problem. climate challenge alone. “All of us, all organizations, especially private companies like Huawei, should actively think, act, and cooperate with an open mind to solve this problem together.”
This year’s Green Week focuses on the “zero pollution goal” and Solutions for creating a non-toxic environment across the EU. Looking to the future, Liu said that Huawei is “ready” to work with its European partners to jointly embark on a “journey” to a carbon-free future in Europe.
