  • International standardizations related to energy management and its influences to industrial automation

    JEITA has contributed to activities of developments of ISO 50001 (EnMS) and related standards, and is suggesting energy management methods adapted to the current Japanese situation through participations in discussion of proposed standard drafts and in international meetings. According to backgrounds of the skyrocketing of energy price and global environment issues, EnMS was standardized internationally and governments have introduced EnMS to their policy. To accelerate this trend more, countries hold targets of energy efficiency improvements according to the agreement of COP21. Therefore, the number of ISO 50001 certified sites is increasing in the world. Although Japan holds energy saving targets in which 50.3 million kilo-liters of primary energy are reduced by 2030, the number of ISO 50001 certified sites in Japan is increasing slowly, since the Energy Saving Act has been already taken effect. But it is reported that measures by only conventional retrofitting equipment are not enough to achieve the targets. In this paper, it is described that a method of energy saving activities required to Japanese companies is the energy management from viewpoint of whole optimization, and ISO 50001 and related standards are effective for the method. Furthermore, it is reported that JEITA has started to discuss about energy management level as a new proposal international standard.

  • Implementation of VAWT in Energy Generation Decentralization in Developing Countries Social, Engineering & Open Data case study in South-East Asia

    In this paper we will be discussing an overview of utilizing Vertical Axis Wind Turbines in local communities of developing countries, testing the local acceptance by employing a factorial survey in Indonesia and Thailand, promoting a conceptual design that will suit these locations respectfully and providing an open source database to help the local community utilize and generate electricity independently which could relief developing countries governments from the hefty costs of producing, transporting and distributing electrical energy to these communities.Before planning, designing and situating any renewable energy project in a developing area we have to take in consideration the local social opinion and fairness into account. As in many developed countries, including the local population in decision making advances the project acceptance, stimulates socio-economic dynamics of the local community and promotes the adoption of new technologies. Thus the intention to connect society with engineering and new renewable technologies. Relying on the survey results a 2 D simulation model has been developed to study the performance of a conceptual Vertical Axis Wind Turbine.We structured the case to first discuss some issues that have shaped our understanding of social acceptance with case studies in both Thailand and Indonesia, followed by a simulation of a proposed vertical axis wind turbine and finally a web based platform to with open source data needed for local residents, communities and societies to have access and implement their projects. The paper concludes with a discussion of the implications of this project for future development, social acceptance enhancements and practical applications.

  • Evolving the Nation's Energy Infrastructure: A Challenging System Issue for the Twenty-First Century

    Over the next several decades, a profound transformation of the global energy enterprise will occur driven largely by population growth and economic development. How this growing demand for energy is met poses one of the most complex and challenging issues of our time. The current national energy dialogue reflects the challenge in simultaneously considering the social, political, economic, and technical issues as the energy system is defined, technical targets are established, and programs and investments are implemented to meet those technical targets.

  • Sustainable Energy: Balancing the Economic, Environmental and Social Dimensions of Energy

    Many of the problems the World faces are managed from a mostly technical or economical perspective, even though problems also have social and environmental dimensions and could be better managed with a more integrative, global perspective. A common trait of these global issues is their interdisciplinary nature, which makes them complex problems difficult to address from one particular discipline. Energy is an example of a global, interdisciplinary problem which is usually approached from a narrow technical or economical perspective. This paper will approach the energy dilemma from the broader perspective of sustainability, striving to achieve a balance among the economic, environmental and social dimensions of energy. Such a balance can benefit the energy policy process by providing a framework that account for many of the interests involved in developing future energy directions and policies.

  • Social-aware energy harvesting device-to-device communications in 5G networks

    With ever increasing demands for local area services in 5G cellular networks, solutions are necessary to deliver local area data in a spectrum- and energy- efficient manner. In this article we propose a new cellular communication architecture that integrates energy harvesting technologies and social networking characteristics into D2D communications for local data dissemination. The proposed architecture includes three domains: the physical domain, the energy domain, and the social domain. Specifically, in the physical domain, D2D communications enable two nearby users to communicate with each other directly. In the energy domain, devices harvest energy from renewable energy sources. In the social domain, D2D users form social networks exhibiting stable social structures and relations. Then we mainly focus on the efficient local data dissemination issues in the proposed architecture and propose two social-aware energy harvesting D2D communication schemes (device relay and device multicast). Illustrative results demonstrate significant spectrum and energy efficiency enhancement for local data dissemination in 5G cellular networks.

  • Economic Implications of Renewable Energy Transition in Nigeria

    The energy system worldwide is undergoing transition to renewable energy (RE) due to concerns over depletion and environmental impacts of fossil-fuel sources, energy security, as well as the volatile nature of crude oil prices. In Nigeria, the need to support this transition is underpinned by the deplorable state of Nigeria's electricity sector which is marred by electricity shortage, domination of fossil-fired systems, struggling power infrastructure and bad governmental influences, among others. The transition to RE is to be considered a viable solution to the aforementioned problems because it encourages decentralised generation which makes room to bypass the bottlenecks in Nigeria's current electricity system. However, the transition to RE in Nigeria has been slow due to policy inconsistencies as noted by the REMP policy document in 2005. In reality, RE transition is complicated because it demands multidisciplinary approach to address social, economic, and environmental issues. Thus, this study is undertaken to analyse the economic implications of RE transition in Nigeria by linking the effect of macroeconomic factors such as investments and energy costs, industrial competitiveness, energy efficiency (EE), GDP changes, employment, income level and standard of living on the progress of transition. Afterwards, the result of the analyses is used to develop a set of criteria useful in measuring the progress of the proposed RE transition. Lastly, some inputs are made towards the sustenance and intensity of the transition process.

  • Green Cooperative Device–to–Device Communication: a Social–Aware Perspective

    As the mobile operators strive to accommodate the increasing load and capacity requirements, direct communication among users' devices, namely, device-to- device (D2D) communication, emerges as an advantageous solution for cellular traffic offloading. However, the formation and the operation of D2D networks are challenging, as D2D peers must satisfy various network-related constraints. Although existing approaches address the D2D communication technical challenges, they usually neglect the fact that devices are used by humans possibly reluctant to communicate with unknown users, introducing an additional constraint. Following the proliferation of social networks and cutting edge mobile devices, social ties among users can promote D2D cooperation. In D2D cooperative communication, multiple devices in close proximity attempt to access the wireless medium. Their interactions at medium access level are affected by the users' social features, as socially connected users are more likely to engage in D2D cooperation. Moreover, the energy consumption of power-constrained mobile devices affects the effectiveness of D2D cooperative communication, stressing the need for incorporating energy awareness in D2D networking. In this paper, we outline the challenges that appear in D2D cooperative networking and medium access control (MAC) design under the influence of social characteristics and the energy consumption concerns that arise in modern D2D networking scenarios. Considering the users' social ties, we present an energy efficient social-aware cooperative D2D MAC protocol as a paradigm of social information inclusion in the green D2D MAC design. Last, we discuss the practical issues of the adoption of social awareness in green D2D cooperation, which may affect the D2D performance in realistic scenarios. Our simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of exploiting the existence of users' social connections in D2D cooperation, highlighting the need for green social-aware D2D cooperative schemes.

  • Supporting Social and Gender Equity Through Micro-Grid Deployment in the DR Congo

    Energy use has long been associated with improvements in development and social outcomes but in many areas, realization of these benefits is stalled by the challenges of building out the infrastructure for a centralized grid. The development of mini-and micro-grids has opened up new opportunities for electricity access by offering flexibility in deployment, the potential for more localized control, and greater versatility in financing options. When powered by renewable energy, these systems offer the additional benefit of environmental gains. While tools to optimize clean energy system deployment in traditional contexts exist, there remains a need for an approach that links the identification of appropriate energy systems with the unique social context of off-grid communities, such as conflict resolution, gender equity, and the limitation of illegal environmental degradation. Below, we propose that a data-informed, participatory framework can assist in site selection and design process for deploying microgrids, to maximize the likelihood that electricity provision will lead to positive social and environmental outcomes, including the reduction of tensions and the promotion of peace in conflict- prone regions. We apply this framework to communities in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

  • Experiences with stakeholder engagement in transitioning to an increased use of renewable energy systems

    Transitioning to an infrastructure that integrates a more substantial portion of renewable energy sources into the larger energy portfolio is not effortless or without sacrifice; it has economic, technical as well as social challenges related to the decisions, choices and consequences in trying to establish new energy systems. Those decisions, choices and consequences are highly dependent on the social, economical and environmental context in which they are made. It is of paramount importance to look for a means of involving more sectors in the policy discussions that are taking place in facing the challenges of an increased use of renewable energy. All energy stakeholders should be engaged in discussions about a new energy future. This paper presents lessons learned from experiences with energy stakeholder engagement in Puerto Rico. Both theoretical and practical issues are presented, in the context of a fossil- fuel dependent society which has the added challenge of being geographically isolated from the main sources of fuel. The paper also presents alternatives for broader participation of energy stakeholders in the energy decision-making process as well as education and outreach challenges.

  • Does Knowledge Energy Mediate the Relationship between Internal Social Capital and Management Innovation

    As the environment has become more dynamic and complex, innovation is more important. Based on a sample of 208 Chinese companies and a structural equation methodology, the study discusses the relationship among internal social capital, knowledge energy and management innovation. Our results indicate that internal social capital positively affects knowledge energy, knowledge energy is indeed associated with greater management innovation, and internal social capital has direct impact on management innovation. Further, our results provide evidence that knowledge energy plays a partial mediating role between internal social capital and management innovation. Since very limited empirical studies have concentrated on above issues in China, the results of this study can offer important direction to theories and practices in the developing of management innovation.
