Energy Internet and eVehicles Overview
Governments around the world are wrestling with the challenge of how to prepare society for inevitable climate change. To date most people have been focused on how to reduce Green House Gas emissions, but now there is growing recognition that regardless of what we do to mitigate against climate change the planet is going to be significantly warmer in the coming years with all the attendant problems of more frequent droughts, flooding, sever storms, etc. As such we need to invest in solutions that provide a more robust and resilient infrastructure to withstand this environmental onslaught especially for our electrical and telecommunications systems.
Linking renewable energy with high speed Internet using fiber to the home combined with eVehicles and dynamic charging where vehicle's batteries are charged as it travels along the road, may provide for a whole new "energy Internet" infrastructure for linking small distributed renewable energy sources to users that is far more robust and resilient to survive climate change than today's centralized command and control infrastructure.

Zero Carbon Data Centers being deployed by Google and others
[There has been a number of recent announcements of companies planning to deploy zero carbon data centers. Previously I mentioned the initiative in Iceland in partnership with Hibernia cable
Here is an excellent presentation by Bastion Host which is planning on deploying a renewable energy data center in rural Nova Scotia which will also take advantage of Hibernia Cable and the much shorter great circle route between North America and Europe. The other advantage of locating a data center in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland is the close proximity to US markets. But, as well, being in Canada enterprise customers are largely protected from the prying eyes of the US Patriot Act.
Google considers data center in Lithuania http://www.reuters.com/article/ousiv/idUSL0767120020080107
VILNIUS (Reuters) - Web search company Google Inc. is considering building a data center in Lithuania, business daily Verslo zinios reported on Monday.
The government has proposed locating the centre near a hydro power plant in Kaisiadoriu district, central Lithuania, and the negotiations over investment were to be closed soon, the paper said. [...]
