Smart solutions, energy efficiency, and sustainability – updating the research agenda for environmental informatics


Hilty, Lorenz (2013). Smart solutions, energy efficiency, and sustainability – updating the research agenda for environmental informatics. In: EnviroInfo 2013 – 27th International Conference on Informatics for Environmental Protection, Hamburg, Deutschland, 2 September 2013 - 4 September 2013, 465-469.

Abstract

"Smart" solutions have considerable transformational power. From the perspective of Environmental Informatics, it is an open question whether a specific smart solution (e.g., a smart home application) is more energy efficient than a conventional solution and under which conditions even a more energy efficient solution is more sustainable. This pa-per provides ideas and arguments why we should take a broader perspective in research and development, taking into account the life cycle of ICT products, the dynamics of economic systems, and emerging risks for basic rights, and how these challenges can be integrated into the research agenda of Environmental Informatics.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
