A Part of the Energy \"In Crowd\": Changing People's Energy Behavior via Group-Based Approaches

IEEE Power and Energy Magazine, 2018

One of the most critical and pressing solutions needed to address global climate change is the transition to secure, affordable, and sustainable-energy systems. This transition is usually considered a technological challenge because it involves the integration of renewable energy, a trend toward decentralizing energy generation, and more demandside participation. However, involving consumers in the transition is crucial for its success. ...

  • A Part of the Energy \"In Crowd\": Changing People's Energy Behavior via Group-Based Approaches

    One of the most critical and pressing solutions needed to address global climate change is the transition to secure, affordable, and sustainable-energy systems. This transition is usually considered a technological challenge because it involves the integration of renewable energy, a trend toward decentralizing energy generation, and more demandside participation. However, involving consumers in the transition is crucial for its success. For example, sustainable-energy transitions may require consumers to adopt sustainable- energy sources, technologies, and energy-efficiency measures as well as change their direct and indirect energy use behaviors to the limited and fluctuating supply of (renewable) energy. However, such behaviors may not always be easy for consumers to adopt, as they can entail personal sacrifice and discomfort or require them to change habits or infrastructure, which can be cognitively and financially demanding. To guarantee a sustainable future for all, it is critical that we understand what motivates consumers' energy behaviors and how we can promote consumers' motivation to engage in sustainable-energy behaviors and act beyond immediate personal interests.

  • Sustainable Electrification Solutions for Developing Countries

    The International Energy Agency estimates that by 2030 still over 1.2 billion people worldwide will not have access to electricity. The vast majority lives in rural areas in developing countries, where the extension of the national grid is often not feasible. Consequently there is often no plan in place to give the rural population access to electricity, which is fundamental to an acceptable quality of life. e.quinox, a student led charitable organization at Imperial College London, has spent the last years developing and testing sustainable electrification solutions for these areas. e.quinox's model is based around central energy generation in an Energy Kiosk and decentralized distribution through Battery Boxes. Currently e.quinox is operating three Energy Kiosks in rural Rwanda, providing 400 households with access to electricity.

  • An Enterprise Systems Engineering Approach to Electrification: Looking at the Bigger Picture Through Life-Cycle Analysis of Community Microgrids: A Case Study in Papua New Guinea

    Electrification of remote communities worldwide represents a key necessity for sustainable development and advancement of the 17 United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Additionally, it is a prerequisite to the creation of numerous other infrastructure and economic systems, including agriculture, health care, education, clean water, sanitation, transportation, and telecommunications. With over 1 billion people still lacking access to electricity, finding new methods to provide safe, clean, reliable, and affordable energy to off-grid communities deserves to be a dynamic area of research. This is the reason that so many papers have been written on the design, optimization, and construction of electrification microgrids.

  • Analysis on the Sustainable Utilization of Water Resources in China

    This paper analyzed the characteristics of Chinese water resources and developed a sustainable utilization evaluation system of water resources. Principal component analysis method was used to carry out the evaluation. The results show there is an obvious negative correlation between water resources endowment and its utilization efficiency, and a positive correlation between utilization efficiency of the water resources and economic development. When economy and population was consider as influence factors, the sustainable development status of water resources in China is different from the distribution of resources endowment. Besides less per-capita water resources, the low water utilization efficiency in the regions with abundant water is another element restricting water resources sustainable use. Furthermore, based on the idea of sustainable development and field survey, suggestions for improving the utilization efficiency of water resources were given.

  • Neuroevolution Based Optimization of Hybrid Transmission Shift Points

    In a hybrid vehicle the speeds at which the transmission shifts between gears has a large impact on energy consumption. Dynamic Programming (DP) can be used to find the optimal transmission gear for a given torque and speed. Neuroevolution of Augmenting Topologies (NEAT) is then utilized to find the shift lines which allow the transmission to be at the most energy efficient point in an implementable way. Through this strategy, an improvement of 7% was achieved compared to the traditional approach.

  • Who Has More Incentive to Make Sustainable Investment, Supplier or Manufacturer?

    Core manufacturers often require their suppliers to get involved in sustainable projects by making investment. Meanwhile, the manufacturers themselves also make sustainable investment. In this paper, we investigate the incentive and impact of the sustainable investment made by the supplier and manufacturer, respectively. Analytical results show that it is more beneficial for the environment when the supplier makes sustainable investment. In addition, the supplier has incentive to invest with profit improvement rather than the manufacturer's obligatory requirement.

  • Study on evaluation system for economic effectiveness of safety resources based on data of accounting

    This paper demonstrates the necessity of establishing the evaluation system for safety resources based on data of accounting systematically. The author gives the connotations and the features of the proposed new evaluation system of the safety resources. The main viewpoint of the paper includes that evaluation system for safety resources is used in all units with possible accidents in production and for estimating and reflecting the effectiveness of the resources provided in preventing accidents, and also for the compensation of the losses caused by the accidents in production within the entire process. On the basis of the connotations of this evaluation system, the main framework and the model of data envelopment analysis ( DEA ) for the new evaluation system is also explained. The purpose of establishing this evaluation system is to promote effective management and evaluation of safety resources invested in high dangerous industries and enterprises.

  • Research on Issues of Resources and Environment

    With the development of society, the human capacity to transform nature gradually increases, as which environmental pollution and ecological destruction have occurred. The faster pace economy developed, the larger scales economy expanded, and the stock of resources dropped at an alarming rate. Environmental issues are posing a threat to human beings in the future. In this paper, we study the issues of resources and environment, establish the optimal models for renewable resources and non-renewable resources, and make responses to the related problems.
