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.

How green was my fiber?

[Olivier Jerphagnon has an excellent blog on ICT and green technologies. As he points out in his most recent posting with the new 100G optical technology and FTTH he state that "fiber optics is a very “green” technology compared to semiconductor electronics. When you look at it more closely, it dissipates a lot less energy than copper based cables and it saves a lot of materials: one single strand of glass can carry as much data as many thousands of copper cables, and it can do over a longer distance without using electronic equipment to regenerate it."

As I mentioned in past postings, I expect future network utilization will be measured on a "bits per carbon" basis rather than "bits per second". With the new 100G wavelength technology, dramatic over provisioning will be the basic design principle. Not only will this make network management much easier, it will also significantly reduce carbon footprint of networks.--BSA]

Also there is a new newsletter on Green Data Centers and Internet Business http://www.igigroup.com/nl/pages/business.html

As the demand for datacenter space continues to grow in the foreseeable future, the force for "greening" these datacenters will become stronger. This dynamic market offers great opportunities to companies that offer products that enable this "green" revolution.

The Green Data Centers & Internet Business Newsletter, published monthly, covers the rapid developments in the areas of Green IT, Green Data Centers, Carrier Hotels, Colocation, Web Hosting, Virtualization, and New Internet Business Models. The following topics will be addressed in each issue: Government Regulations, EPA Requirements, New Energy-saving Measures and Technologies, Vendor Initiatives, RFPs, Partnerships and Alliances, Contracts, and New Products. The newsletter provides the necessary marketing and technology information to keep you abreast of new developments and opportunities.
