Energy 4 Industrial Revolution Nature (op-Ed) looks to grow
#Cosmoread: Davos, Switzerland, the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in 2016, industry leaders focused on what it calls the fourth industrial energy revolution nature. Before the industrial energy revolution revolution, while allowing a very large-scale production, manufacturing, power plants and water power to steam power used in other fields. The third industrial revolution has touched every aspect of people’s lives, the cutting-edge technology and automation, introduced. The fourth industrial energy revolution is even more promising.
These advance publicity, Klaus Schwab, the forum’s executive chairman, said he believed “the fundamental way we live, work and relate to each other that could change the brink of a technological revolution.” “The human race is unlike anything experienced before,” their scope, scale and complexity, these changes will have to change the “production, management and administration of the entire system,” he said.
The fourth industrial energy revolution nature, Schwab “physical, is blurring the lines between digital and biological areas.” The irony is that this fast-paced technological and space-age world to the power of nature, bringing humanity back to earth is. Schwab talks much about, information technology, nanotechnology, industrial technology and biology linkage contacts the power of nature is something.
These relationships and reducing the use of chemicals to improve yields enable precision farming; He leaves after the physical design to improve solar cells by patterning. Even new solutions in the field of health care, urban services and storms, floods, fires and more flexibility to inspire the community combined with knowledge of natural systems, sophisticated mapping and engineering insights, and some of the power of nature digital access to information is seen.
Consider oyster reefs. They coastal infrastructure, coastal erosion, flooding and reduce damage, absorb wave energy and to reduce as much as 76-93 percent of the power of waves to protect shorelines. The Nature Conservancy to restore oyster reef communities, working with engineering companies and others. They work to reduce the risk of coastal communities from storms digital information, coastal modeling, engineering and ecosystem brings together insights.
Many fonts of knowledge that links such fast-paced change society trying to tackle climate change is good news for communities around the world, which can meet their energy needs and how new ways of conceiving is open. The World Economic Forum’s 2016 meeting, over 190 nations has committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions on climate change comes on the heels of the historic Paris agreement.
Coupled with the global commitment to tackling climate change fourth industrial revolution, how to rebuild the state of US fuel entrepreneurs, communities and individuals generates puts, transportation and energy uses.
Bill Gates, Jack Ma, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg and technology, research and investment in clean energy innovation leaders have formed an alliance to supercharge decisive power. These industry leaders that produce zero carbon emissions affordable, reliable energy with the potential for early investment in projects that encourage public-private partnership to a new level fast. Or as fast as the speed of social media such as smart phones that take place with an adoption rate Imagine an energy revolution.
Changing the energy sector and reducing greenhouse gas emissions and energy costs while providing choice to consumers about additional transparency, reliability and security to increase and will continue to diversify energy sources.
But this new revolution, not all energy focuses on innovative actions. Fourth Energy Revolution Nature – in addressing climate change and its Nexus – finance, insurance, hotel services, construction design, risk management and is driving the change.
• The insurance industry, including infrastructure and natural in their risk modeling storms, erosion, flooding and other threats to help reduce the risk based on the nature of the solutions is spurring new investments.
• Cities, storm water and help clean the air, cooler temperatures and the supply of drinking water are used to handle nature.
• Planners, developers and urban and coastal infrastructure providers increase the flexibility of the use of nature-based solutions are expanding.
And some of the greatest technological innovations, but instead there are institutional. “Green performance contracts” as the new system of economic, environmental and energy performance can improve. Potato chip manufacturers consider the example of the supply of raw potato. PwC summarized by potato chips, carbon footprint, in a study that showed prices were established by weight. In response to price signals to farmers a moisture (and thus heavier) to produce potato controlled humidification. Despite the strict specifications set by the moisture content of the chip makers, farmers still increase in the price paid for raw potatoes, but no value is added to the final product, according to the potato water a few extra grams of weight added. The total weight was important, and the excess moisture to burn took additional cooking.
In a life-cycle analysis of the carbon footprint of the potato chip, the extra cooking chips’ power consumption to account for the unexpectedly high percentage turned out. The extra cooking greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and energy, transportation of potatoes to the factory those dwarfed.
The solution to this challenge was simple: without compromising product quality produce potatoes with less moisture to provide farmers with an incentive to change the purchase contract.
Other energy performance contracts that comprehensive measures to improve energy efficiency, expand the use of renewable energy and distributed generation to provide customers with access, are emerging between builders and governments. Often these services for the entire project cost savings generated by a project that will cover are guaranteed.
I see it unveiled a fourth industrial energy revolution nature, I Alfred, Lord Tennyson is reminded of the words: “The Earth is so big yet so circumscribed, and is.” The population is putting pressure on limited resources, grow and incomes rise as a world power, food, water and other resources, increasing demand for watches. But the good news is boundless imagination of humanity and the hope of a healthy and prosperous future lies.
Ready-made solution with greater precision the nature of the waste, reducing the use of resources, and economic opportunities and environmental benefits is helping to link information technology, chemistry, nanotechnology and more in knowledge-mail.
