This summit represents a historic moment as this is the first time a company of Pakistan-origin has hosted a summit of such scale at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain. 

Titled "Innovate, Fund, Transform: Telecom's Journey to a Sustainable, AI-Powered Era," the summit set a new precedent for the intersection of technology and sustainability within the telecom sector, with a special focus on AI-enabled solutions.

Bilal Qureshi, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Brillanz Group and a trailblazer in engineering and energy solutions for the telecom sector highlighted the summit's significance in propelling innovative and sustainable solutions within the industry. He emphasised that hosting such an event at MWC Barcelona was a historic milestone for a Pakistani company.

"This summit marks a historic moment as it's the inaugural occasion a Pakistani company has hosted such a large-scale event at MWC Barcelona," Qureshi said. 

"The global launch of Thunder, our AI-Enabled Energy Intelligence Platform, underscores our dedication to spearheading impactful innovation, particularly in enhancing energy efficiency within the global telecom sector, which accounts for approximately 3% of worldwide carbon emissions."

The unveiling of Thunder, a hardware-agnostic SaaS platform, at the summit heralds a paradigm shift in how the telecom industry approaches energy efficiency, establishing a benchmark for intelligent energy management. The Sustainable Energy Summit has been a landmark event, highlighting Brillanz Group's leadership in sustainable innovation.

Notable moments from the summit comprised a fireside chat with Jazz's CEO Aamir Ibrahim. Ibrahim's discussions offered deep insights into the future of the telecom sector, underlining the necessity for a sustainable strategy to address the escalating energy requirements.
