Cable system operators are taking significant strides in reducing energy usage and costs and exploring alternative energy sources, according to Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE), following a panel on energy management at The Cable Show in Los Angeles last week.

Accomplishments include the deployment of thousands of hybrid vehicles, engineering facilities to optimize airflow and reduce cooling expense, and smaller steps such as light sensors and recycling that are designed to create awareness of the cost and environmental benefits of “green” approaches.

“There’s no question that our industry is just scratching the surface of this issue, but it’s encouraging and exciting to see how quickly operators are moving to put new policies into place," said Dzuban in a statement.
