A new report released by Vodafone and Accenture says that the use of mobile
communications can reduce the annual energy bill for Europe by a €43
billion, equivalent to an annual reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by at
least 113 Mt CO2e (metric ton carbon dioxide equivalents) by 2020.

But for these opportunities to come to fruition, governments will have to
play an important role - like evolving regulation to set an appropria... (more)
