Information technology and renewable energy — Modelling, simulation, decision support and environmental assessment


Hilty, Lorenz; Page, Bernd (2015). Information technology and renewable energy — Modelling, simulation, decision support and environmental assessment. Environmental Impact Assessment Review, 52(1):1.

Abstract

The transition of energy systems toward a higher share of renewable energy creates complex challenges in designing, implementing, controlling and maintaining the systems. Environmental assessments of system structures and the decisions made during design, implementation and operation are usually based on complex data, models and decision procedures and therefore involve innovative applications of information and communication technologies (ICT).

This special issue of Environmental Impact Assessment Review gives a broad overview of ICT-based approaches to meet the challenges of renewable energy sources. It is based on papers selected from the 27th EnviroInfo Conference held at the University of Hamburg in September 2013 under the theme “ICT and Renewable Energies” (Page et al., 2013). The papers have been expanded by the authors and submitted to this special issue. In addition, some papers submitted to this journal independent of the EnviroInfo conference were included in the special issue.

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.
