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.

The Globe and Mail has a good article on why we need to get away from our traditional thinking in terms of addressing climate change:

Guardian - Until we get a 100% decarbonised grid, the marginal impact of efficiency is always to add more coal to a power station
[There is a great article in today’s Guardian about understanding the real challenges of decarbonizing our society with respect to the recent decision by Germany to shut down its nuclear plants- http://goo.gl/e6WCF.

When India and China are adding a coal plant a week, energy efficiency in the western world is meaningless

[Here is a very cool project at Rutgers that demonstrates how we can build “adaptable” ICT green solutions that will be needed for a much warmer planet and yet at the same are also excellent solutions for mitigation.
