"How 6G Promises to Build a Sustainable Future"

Wednesday, 22 June 2022, 2pm ET

As 5G evolves into 6G networks, it will be critical that it adopt the most energy-efficient technologies to reduce carbon emissions and our dependence on non-renewable resources.

In terms of increased sustainability, 6G will need to aim directly at lessening its overall environmental impact, including water consumption, raw material sourcing, and waste handling. But it is also important to consider the indirect impact of 6G networks can have on sustainability by conserving resources and minimizing waste in either existing use-cases or novel use-cases.

Areas that this webinar will examine in how 6G can take on a key role in a sustainable future include:

  • Sensor networks (e.g., smart ag, fleet and building management) – IoT, low power, and inherently backscatter compatible 6G
  • Smart grids and grid-interactive data centers
  • Micro grids, where devices can share and trade low levels of energy to prevent the need for batteries
  • Zero-energy devices – a new opportunity in 6G


Onel Alcaraz López, Assistant Professor, 6G Flagship, University of Oulu

  • Onel L. A. López received the B.Sc. (1st class honors, 2013), M.Sc. (2017) and D.Sc. (with distinction, 2020) degree in Electrical Engineering from the Central University of Las Villas (Cuba), the Federal University of Paraná (Brazil) and the University of Oulu (Finland), respectively. From 2013-2015 he served as a specialist in telematics at the Cuban telecommunications company (ETECSA). He is a collaborator to the 2016 Research Award given by the Cuban Academy of Sciences, a co-recipient of the 2019 IEEE European Conference on Networks and Communications (EuCNC) Best Student Paper Award, and the recipient of the 2020 best doctoral thesis award granted by Academic Engineers and Architects in Finland TEK and Tekniska Föreningen i Finland TFiF in 2021. He is co-author of the book entitled "Wireless RF Energy Transfer in the massive IoT era: towards sustainable zero-energy networks'', Wiley, Dec 2021. He currently holds an Assistant Professorship (tenure track) in sustainable wireless communications engineering in the Centre for Wireless Communications (CWC), Oulu, Finland. His research interests include sustainable IoT, energy harvesting, wireless RF energy transfer, wireless connectivity, machine-type communications, and cellular-enabled positioning systems.
