Coordinated Multiple Point (CoMP) Transmission/Reception could increase the transmission date rate of cell edge users and extend the cell coverage. Meanwhile, to meet the requirement of green communications, the researchers have studied how to improve the energy efficiency. In this paper, the energy consumption of eNodeB in CoMP is analyzed and the energy efficiency is optimized. Then, the joint optimization of resource allocation, beamforming and power allocation is performed to maximize the energy efficiency in CoMP homogeneous networks. The relationship between system energy efficiency and system spectrum efficiency is also discussed in this paper.
