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:

If the Internet was a country it would be the 5th biggest energy consumer in the world

[Another excellent analysis by Greenpeace on the threat that the Internet poses in terms of energy consumption and CO2 emissions. The dramatic growth of the data centers that power the Internet are the heavy industry of the information age.

Electric roads and Internet will allow coast to coast driving with no stopping and no emissions

[Here is a great article on some of the ongoing research with electric roads in Korea and USA. As I have blogged before electric roads can be powered solely by independent roadside windmills or solar panels, owned and operated by small businesses.
