PHILADELPHIA, September 22, 2022 /CSRwire/ – Comcast announced at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2022 that Comcast Cable plans to double its network energy efficiency by 2030, cutting the electricity per consumed terabyte of data in half.
Comcast has been investing in a nationwide network transformation to virtual, cloud-based technologies that offer faster broadband speeds, greater reliability, and improved energy efficiency. The new virtualized platform includes more centralized locations for headends, hubs, and data centers that are more efficient than previous technologies, requiring less hardware, less space, and less energy per byte.
“We’re on the path to a greener internet,” said Charlie Herrin, President of the Technology, Product, Experience organization within Comcast Cable.
Comcast has set a goal to be carbon neutral by 2035 for Scope 1 and 2 emissions, or the direct and indirect emissions it owns and controls, across its global operations. With purchased electricity accounting for the majority of its emissions, Comcast is investing in clean, renewable energy to power its network and operations, as well as shifting to newer, more energy-efficient technologies and facilities to deliver more data with less energy per byte.
“Achieving our carbon neutral goal will require our business to work harder and smarter, and that goes for the network itself,” Herrin added.
We’re proud to make network energy efficiency a priority among our peers and suppliers, and to demonstrate the role our industry has in creating a more sustainable future.
President, Technology, Product, Experience, Comcast Cable
To underscore the company’s commitment to the environment, Comcast has purchased and gifted renewable energy certificates to power SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2022 with 100% clean energy.
