How 5G Can Spur Climate Tech Innovation
5G wireless technology is being rolled out in the United States and around the world. By mid-decade there will be an estimated 3 billion 5G connected users, globally. The speed, connectivity, and low-latency of 5G will make it a critical backbone technology to a wide range of climate tech applications. From autonomous vehicles to supporting an Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem to improve energy efficiency and connectivity of devices like smart manufacturing and agriculture, 5G infrastructure will be essential to meeting our energy and environmental challenges.
An overview of and window into the potential climate tech applications of 5G and what is needed going forward to help ensure that this critical infrastructure can facilitate the low-carbon transition.
