Energy Efficiency is one of the most critical issues affecting the prospects for successful deployment of 5G. This compact, informative report begins by outlining the original requirements for 5G, both in terms of performance and energy efficiency. it then goes on to cover the most promising avenues for achieving outstanding 5G efficiency - the optimal management of base stations (e.g. through the advantageous use of sleep modes), spatial multiplexing, beamforming, improved battery life, reduction of energy consumption by auxiliary equipment and increased hardware efficiency.
