Green communication has become a hot topic in the field of wireless communication. This paper aims to improve the Quality of Service (QoS) of the system and minimizes the energy consumption by the spectrum-energy cooperation between adjacent base stations. We formulate the proposed spectrum-energy cooperation model as a hybrid constrained many-objective optimization problem (MaOP). To improve the efficiency of optimization algorithm, an alternate optimization algorithm is presented to address the proposed complex MaOP. The evolutionary multiobjective algorithm is employed for spectrum cooperation optimization which is discrete optimization problem, meanwhile classical optimization method is employed for energy consumption optimization and energy cooperation optimization that are continuous optimization problems. Simulation results show the effectiveness of the algorithm.
