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.

IEEE Green House Gas standards for 5G networks and Green ICT
I thought you might be interested in the email below from IEEE Standards Association. If you think it is merited, please share it with your audience regarding GHG standards and renewable power. I've added some more information about the standards portal and ClimateCHECK's work with green data centre GHG standardization.
The IEEE P1595 Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Standard project will use a new online standards development platform developed by ClimateCHECK, in association with the Greenhouse Gas Management Institute (GHGMI), the worlds largest community of GHG experts. The online standards platform provides global accessibility for experts to collaborate in authoring documents online, with the functionality to track edits, comments, balloting, as well as task management and reporting. The accessibility of the online tools, coupled with purpose built standards development functionality is designed to enable greater productivity of experts with the objective of saving time and costs while maintaining high quality. The process governance functionality, which is flexible to incorporate standards templates and procedures from different standards initiatives, provides transparency and additional credibility to the work of the standards developers.
IEEE GHG standards are relevant to 5G Networks and Green IT because the standards will be useful for data centre design, engineers and CFOs in the business case and provides the methodologies to support green power claims. ClimateCHECK will use the standards portal as part of benchmarking and performance work with McGill University and UCSD supercomputing centre to create GHG metrics. Using ClimateCHECKs online collaborative solution, subject matter experts and stakeholders can more effectively design green standards and standards-based quantitative green metrics to help transition from qualitative green claims. These tools and approach will benefit all the stakeholders in the business decision making process and provide competitive advantage to green product vendors.

Subject: Call for Participation for P1595(TM) Working Group
IEEE CALLS FOR PARTICIPATION TO DEVELOP STANDARDS FOR QUANTIFYING GHG EMISSIONS FROM SMALL HYDRO AND WIND POWER PROJECTS, AND GRID BASELINE CONDITIONS
The IEEE Standards Association announced a call for participation for the IEEE P1595(TM) Working Group to help develop new standards for quantifying greenhouse gas (GHG) emission credits from small hydro and wind power projects and for grid baseline conditions. The IEEE P1595 Working Group is part of the Climate Change Technology Sub-Committee (CCTSC) of the Energy Development and Power Generation Committee (EDPGC) of the IEEE Power and Energy Society (IEEE-PES).
The IEEE P1595 standard will use protocols for wind power, small hydro and grid baseline developed by the Government of Canadas Department of Natural Resources - CANMET Energy Technology Centre (NRCan-CETC) as its seed documents. These protocols were developed in accordance with the ISO 14064 Part 2 International Standard for GHG Projects, which is used by regulated carbon offset credit markets such as in the Province of Alberta and in the Province of British Columbia. ISO 14064 Part 2 has also been adopted by the Voluntary Carbon Standard (www.v-c-s.org ).
The IEEE P1595 working group will be working in cooperation with the ClimateCHECK, a collaborative solutions provider in the GHG and clean technology markets. The IEEE P1595 working group will be utilizing ClimateCHECKs online standards development platform, which was developed in association with the Greenhouse Gas Management Institute (GHGMI).
Those interested in joining the IEEE P1595 Working Group or for more information, please contact the P1595 Working Group Chair Jim McConnach at firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 1-705 645 5524 or CCTSC Chair Tom Baumann at email@example.com, phone number +1 613 795 1158.
