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:

Ontario Government Green Bonds fund research infrastructure and ICT

It is exciting to see the number of university/college/hospital projects funded under Ontario's second Green Bond issue.  I am told the next bond issue will have many more university college research infrastructure projects with perhaps some having an ICT component involving campus upgrades etc.  The fact that ICT can represent up to 40% of a campus electrical consumption means there can be significant energy savings through the use of clouds, off campus hosting etc. R&E networks can play a critical role in providing solutions to help universities and colleges reduce their carbon/energy footprint.
