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:

Green Cloud Apps will be future killer apps for the Internet

[I recently stumbled across a very cool app called EchoSign that allows for electronic transmission and signature of all sorts of documents such as NDAs, expense claims, contract revisions, patient signatures, etc.
It really simplifies the process of getting documents signed. But besides being a very cool app, this cloud app is 100% powered by wind through use of renewable energy credits (RECs). Although I am not a big fan of RECs I see them as a first step to moving their application to a zero carbon Internet infrastructure like the Greenstar network. Given the huge power consumption of cloud services, building apps that can use clouds powered solely by wind/sun will dramatically reduce costs and also help save the planet. If you check out the Greenstar web site you can see a demo of a how a HD video server is moved from site to site on the Greenstar network depending on the availability of green power at any given site without causing a single disruption in the video stream to the end user. If we can move video servers around the world without effecting the quality of video stream, imagine what types of other apps can be supported on such an infrastructure. It is green apps like this that represent the future of the Internet! – BSA]
