It then reviews contemporary issues such as global warming, environmental deterioration, depletion of carbon energy sources, and energy disputes. Next, it evaluates technical innovations, system change, and international cooperation. Then, it tackles how civilization will evolve in light of meeting future energy needs, how Smart Energy will meet these needs, and defines the global mission. It ends with a summary of China’s vision of a Smart Energy future. This is required reading for everyone concerned about energy, environment, economy, human survival, and development .
The enormous challenge of creating a longterm sustainable energy system calls for the participation of engineers, natural and social scientists. They can contribute both through their research and by helping to craft strategies that steer the future development of the system. A sustainable energy system cannot be developed by technical fixes alone; action is required on a broad front, including institutional and regulatory changes. There is an abundance of scientific evidence on which to base decisions on how to proceed. Still, research has a crucial role to play as well.Smart Energy Strategies highlights smart solutions: advances in technical and social-science energy research, particularly advances related to new information technology (e.g. control and communication); and experience with targeted applications of information technology in the supply and consumption of energy. The conference has focused on smart strategies taking into account current technical and institutional systems, with their inertia and shortcomings; future energy-related challenges: energy security; the growing energy needs of the disadvantaged; and unintended consequences of energy systems, particularly climate change but also uncontrolled money flows; smart technical, institutional, and regulatory mechanisms for meeting these challenges.

Projektarbeit aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich BWL - Beschaffung, Produktion, Logistik, Note: 2,0, Hochschule Fresenius; Köln, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Umwelt der Logistikbranche steht in einem ständigen Wandel. Dabei ist die Umwelt der Logistik extrem volatil und die Anforderungen verschiedener Gruppen ändern sich häufig. Durch diese sich ändernden Anforderungen bilden sich über einen längeren Zeitraum hinweg Trends, welche gemeinhin definiert werden, als etwas langfristiges und nachhaltiges, was eine breite Masse über längere Zeit beeinflusst. Man geht davon aus, dass Trends in der Regel dadurch entstehen, dass sich die Anforderungen an etwas in der Gesellschaft dahingehend verändern, dass es nötig wird sich durch Innovationen an diese oft gestiegenen Anforderungen anzupassen und so neue Technologien beziehungsweise neue Arten der Dienstleistung entstehen. Beispielhaft kann als eine erste Anforderung der Gesellschaft kann in diesem Zusammenhang die Globalisierung genannt werden. Dies bedeutet, dass Produkte auf ihrem Weg zum Endkunden weitere Wege zurücklegen müssen. Damit geht allerdings auch einher, dass Konsumenten die Produkte ebenso schnell erhalten wollen, als wenn Produkte nur einen wesentlich kürzeren Weg transportiert werden mussten. Eine zweite beispielhafte neue Anforderung der Gesellschaft ist die steigende Umweltsensibilität, das heißt dass die Nachfrage nach umweltfreundlichen Logistiklösungen in der Gesellschaft steigt. Dies hängt vor allem damit zusammen, dass weltweit eine Bewegung hin zu nachhaltiger Energienutzung, aufgrund des anhaltenden Kampf gegen den Klimawandel herrscht. Dies sind nur zwei Beispiele von vielen neuen Anforderungen, die die Gesellschaft an Logistikservices hat. Dementsprechend muss die Logistik Lösungen finden, um diesen neuen Anforderungen gerecht zu werden. Daraus entstehen dann für gewöhnlich Trends, welche von der Deutschen Post DHL Group in einem Logistics Trend Radar zusammengefasst wurden. In diesem werden jährlich die 26 wichtigsten Schlüsseltrends, die die Logistikbranche nachhaltig beeinflussen können, dargestellt. Der Trendradar gilt als Pflichtlektüre für Logistikmanager und für alle die heute schon über die Zukunft in der Logistik informiert sein wollen.

There is widespread interest in the way that smart energy control systems, such as assessment and monitoring techniques for low carbon, nearly-zero energy and net positive buildings can contribute to a Sustainable future, for current and future generations. There is a turning point on the horizon for the supply of energy from finite resources such as natural gas and oil become less reliable in economic terms and extraction become more challenging, and more unacceptable socially, such as adverse public reaction to ‘fracking’. Thus, in 2016 these challenges are having a major influence on the design, optimisation, performance measurements, operation and preservation of: buildings, neighbourhoods, cities, regions, countries and continents. The source and nature of energy, the security of supply and the equity of distribution, the environmental impact of its supply and utilization, are all crucial matters to be addressed by suppliers, consumers, governments, industry, academia, and financial institutions. This book entitled ‘Smart Energy Control Systems for Sustainable Buildings’ contains eleven chapters written by international experts based on enhanced conference papers presented at the Sustainability and Energy in Buildings International conference series. This book will be of interest to University staff and students; and also industry practioners.

Smart Energy Management for Households infers design-related insights and guidelines to improve the use and effectiveness of home energy management systems (HEMS) through an empirical evaluation of the longitudinal effectiveness of these devices and an exploration of factors that influence their use and effectiveness. Three case studies executed with three different HEMS in households, a life cycle assessment (LCA) on those three HEMS, as well as a reflection on the challenges of both researching and implementing HEMS in existing housing gave a comprehensive picture of the opportunities and barriers for HEMS. The research revealed five typical use patterns that emerged amongst households. It also revealed average energy savings of 7.8%, which however decreased in the follow-up that was conducted, and factors that may influence the use and effectiveness of HEMS. Nonetheless, the LCA cal culations divulged that the HEMS can achieve net energy savings when taking their embedded energy into account.
