Project SEISMIC to study power management
solutions for sustainable and cost-effective rural telecom infrastructure
August 19, 2021, Toronto ON – Today, Clear Blue Technologies International Inc. (TSXV:
CBLU) (“Clear Blue”) announced Project
SEISMIC (Smart Energy Infrastructure for Mobile
Internet Connectivity), an initiative with Facebook Research and Mayu
Telecomunicaciones (“Mayutel”) that aims to help accelerate rural telecom
infrastructure through innovations in power management. By collecting real-world
field study data, the project hopes to validate that telecom sites powered by
smart off-grid power can achieve significantly lower capital expenditures,
reduce site power consumption, minimize operating costs and optimize service
field study is currently underway in Peru. Mayutel, the first rural mobile
infrastructure operator in Peru, built the SEISMIC telecom test sites, while
Clear Blue provided smart power technology using a power management module,
software, and cloud service to enable dynamic power management. Data collection
and field testing began earlier this year, with plans to publish initial
findings in 6-9 months. The project intends to validate a smart power
management solution that could offer significant savings in power costs between
40 to 60 percent, while still maintaining relevant telecom performance.
“Rural areas are the new frontier where the telecom market
is seeing rapid growth,” said Miriam Tuerk, CEO and co-Founder of Clear Blue.
“Clear Blue’s technology is a critical factor to making internet and telecom
connection more accessible by lowering the cost of power, especially in these
rural regions. We’re excited to see the results of the field study, which will
provide measurable proof to telecom operators and investors on the quantifiable
value of smart power – a significant step forward for the industry in
supporting wider deployment.”
In rural areas, traditional power is cost-prohibitive, with
service challenges and expensive operational costs due to low population
operators account for 2 to 3 percent of total global energy demand, making them
some of the most energy-intensive companies in their geographic markets.
telecom network providers are expected to install nearly 121.9 GW of cumulative
new distributed renewable energy generation technologies and distributed energy
storage systems capacity between 2021 and 2030. Finding new ways to bring
cost-effective, sustainable energy solutions to telecom services in rural
regions will help reduce the challenges of operational costs and drive greater
In undertaking the field study, Project SEISMIC aims to show
that smart power, based on Clear Blue’s technology, can reduce energy
consumption, installation costs and operating expenses for telecom operators,
while not compromising on network service.

About Mayu Telecomunicaciones
Mayutel is a telecommunications infrastructure operator focused on rural areas of Peru. Mayutel builds and operates its own telecommunications networks in rural regions where there is a lack of telecommunications infrastructure and, consequently, telecommunications services. Mobile Operators lease their infrastructure in order to provide services to new users in these regions. Mayutel is founded with the vision of making possible the provision of quality telecommunications services in an efficient and sustainable way to each of the country's inhabitants regardless of geography, distances and market difficulties.
