So why post a video made 5 years ago? It's because I'm researching into what radio stations can do to prepare for the next natural disaster. And losing access to mains electricity is often a huge problem. So how do the mobile network's solve the same problem?
In the outside exhibition at Barcelona's Mobile World Congress, I thought Motorola had found the answer. They had done trials in Namibia showing that the best solution for mobile base stations was a combination of a 3 kW wind turbine (smaller was useless) and a solar panel array. They published the research, but I get the impression the lessons learned weren't implemented. Google has now acquired Motorola and links on the Internet lead me to assume that Nokia acquired some of this section of Motorola.
But this video is proof that they were on to something.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
