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 and at the same time reduce our carbon footprint.

Linking renewable energy with high speed Internet using fiber to the home combined with autonomous 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. These new energy architectures will also significantly reduce our carbon footprint. For more details please see:

Computers and ICT in Australia account for 8% energy consumption - education biggest contributor

[Here is an excellent report by the computer association of Australia measuring the impact of computing and ICT on Australia’s carbon footprint. One of the notable factoids is that education and training sector is the largest contributor to this energy consumption and CO2 emissions. I believe this once again confirms the critical leadership role that R&E networks and institutions must play in helping reduce a nation’s carbon footprint and energy consumption. Overall the growth of ICT energy consumption is about 6% per year and probably even faster in the education and training sector. With this growth rate the energy consumption of ICT will double within a decade!! This is unsustainable. The use of ICT in education and training is probably the one sector where more adaptable and flexible solutions can be developed that are powered solely by renewable energy –BSA]
