This paper investigates the business impact of two novel mechanisms that increase the energy
efficiency of networks, i.e. sensor network decentralisation and system idle time estimation, which
have been developed in the CONSERN project. The analysis consists of two distinct but interrelated
phases, the objective of which is to combine a techno-economic analysis of actual gains as contained
within the technical KPIs of optimisation techniques, with a strategic analysis of factors promoting or
hindering the actual introduction of these mechanisms within mobile business ecosystems. In the first
phase, the technical gains of the two mechanisms are translated into an estimation of Operational
Expenditure (OPEX) savings for a number of typical configurations. Subsequently, a business impact
assessment is performed, in which two commercial deployment modes - an operator based and
operator independent mode - are outlined. After having drawn up the business ecosystem for these
two deployment models, a number of business opportunities and challenges for the two mechanisms in
the different deployment modes are identified using the business model framework developed by
Ballon, and a scorecard is used to weigh the importance of the various business model parameters
against each other. The paper concludes with some recommendations and steps to mitigate
disjunctions and improve synergies between the key stakeholders, constituting a sustainable business
