Opportunities and challenges for a sustainable energy future

Opportunities and challenges for a sustainable energy future | IT in Industry | Scoop.it

Access to clean, affordable and reliable energy has been a cornerstone of the world's increasing prosperity and economic growth since the beginning of the industrial revolution. Our use of energy in the twenty–first century must also be sustainable. Solar and water–based energy generation, and engineering of microbes to produce biofuels are a few examples of the alternatives. This Perspective puts these opportunities into a larger context by relating them to a number of aspects in the transportation and electricity generation sectors. It also provides a snapshot of the current energy landscape and discusses several research and development opportunities and pathways that could lead to a prosperous, sustainable and secure energy future for the world.

Fully-customized, modular solar house is 3D printed prefab

"Solar House 2.0, erected this year on Barcelona's waterfront, uses time-tested passive solar techniques, but it takes a high-tech leap forward using digital design and digital fabrication techniques to make it completely optimized for ideal solar gain.
With its jagged cantilevers jutting out at odd angles across most of the facade (except the North corner), Solar House 2.0 looks, and acts, like few other buildings. Thanks to digital design, the building's structure was mathematically adjusted so that every point of the building was adapted to the exact conditions of the exterior.
Software also played a lead role in the building's construction. Relying on 3D milling (for more on 3D printing see our video MakerBot: open source, self-replicating, stuff-making robot)- the Solar House designers employed a CNC (computer numerical control) wood router- the building's individual pieces could be completely customized, creating the totally irregular patterns not possible (or affordable) with older, mass production techniques.
Solar House 2.0 was completely prefabricated so when the pieces arrived at the site, it took the team just 2 weeks to erect the 154-square-meter (1,658 sq ft) building. The building's plans are open source and available to anyone who wants to build their own solar house, solar office or solar tower, but completely-customized to their location."

Nerd Post: Ford Gets Virtual

"Virtual reality, the new reality for Ford automotive design! At the Partners in Prevention Conference in Toronto, Ford offered test drives of their 2013 Fusion... before the car had even been built!

Virtual Reality is a phenomenal new development for the company. With this technology, modification and adjustments can be planned before the car heads to the assembly line for production."

Allan - surely an oversight that you and I weren't on this list. :-) Or, could it be that neither of us is as young as we'd like to be. Happy holidays.

It’s Saturday evening, you’re about to head out to a party and want to dress to impress. Unfortunately, nothing in your wardrobe seems to do the trick. Not a problem. Simply go online to the site of your favourite designer, download the design, print off the outfit and wear it out.

 

This concept may sound far-fetched right now, but the technology that could allow this to happen is already here and is starting to make its way into mainstream manufacturing...
