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.

Stunning demo on the future of cell phones and computers

[Here is a fascinating TED video showing demonstrating a novel new human-machine interface for cell phones/computers. One of the big challenges of computer miniaturization and power consumption is the large interface devices required for humans to access computers and cell phones – namely the screen and keyboard. This MIT demo is a brilliant demonstration of another approach. Solving the power consumption issues of the human machine interface is critical because, as reported in the ABI research paper – zero carbon networking is the next big thing. ABI Research forecasts that in 2009 over 800,000 cell phone base stations will utilize alternative energy solutions such as wind or solar energy. ABI Vice president Stuart Carlaw says, “One only has to look at the splash of solar powered mobile devices at Mobile World Congress 2009 to see that environmentally friendly solutions are becoming increasingly important to mobile consumers, service providers, application developers and OEMs alike.”
Companies that focus on building zero carbon optical and wireless Internet networks and related computer equipment will be the big winners. This will be driven not so much by the requirement to make the Internet zero carbon, whose contribution to overall CO2 emissions is only about 2-3% globally, but by “gCommerce” applications where consumers and businesses are rewarded with free telecommunications products and services in exchange for paying a voluntary carbon tax on their automobile, home heating/cooling etc –BSA]
