Dynamic load and spectrum usage management techniques can significantly improve the energy efficiency of mobile communications systems. This paper considers: the opportunistic reallocation of traffic loads between bands to allow radio network equipment in the bands that the traffic is originated from to be powered down, and the opportunistic selection of more appropriate spectrum based on propagation characteristics to minimize necessary transmission power through improving propagation and/or reducing power leaking into co-channel cells in frequency reuse cases.
