KDDI, Monday shared its findings on the use of the 'tri-brid' technology for base stations, a new green mobile base station technology that operates in response to the weather conditions and time of day by making efficient use of three types of electric power - standard commercial electric power, solar power and rechargeable batteries. The company, which boasts 40 million domestic mobile subscribers had started using the 'tri-brid' base station since 2009 and noted that the new technology can reduce annual CO2 emissions by up to 30% compared to base stations that utilize only commercial electric power. KDDI's initiative is under its Green Plan 2012-2016, which focuses on achieving the following outcomes - low-carbon society, recycling-oriented society and and biodiversity. 

According to KDDI, the company also plans to deploy Tri-brid base stations internationally as part of its effort to combat global warming, starting with deployments across mobile phone base stations in Indonesia.
