INESC TEC develops solutions to reduce the energy impact of communication networks
INESC TEC's High-Assurance Software Laboratory (HASLab) will develop solutions that allow the adaptation of WAN (Wide Area Networks) communications networks to the availability and source of electrical power in real time, while prioritising renewable sources.

The €49K project FLEXCOMM (Towards energy-aware communications: connecting the power grid and communication infrastructure) was recently approved by the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) and will start in January 2022.
“The main innovative aspect of this project is the integration (and operational cooperation) between the communication and electrical power distribution infrastructures”, said João Marco Silva, coordinator of the project and a researcher at HASLab. As a result, the project will contribute to reducing the energy impact and, consequently, the environmental effect caused by the growing volume of data transported by communications networks.
