Energy and environment, 1st Edition by André, Michel; Samaras, Zissis

By André, Michel; Samaras, Zissis

Transport structures are dealing with an most unlikely problem: fulfill an expanding call for for mobility of individuals and items, whereas reducing their fossil-energy standards and maintaining the surroundings. also, delivery has a chance to adapt in a altering global, with new companies, applied sciences but in addition new specifications (fast supply, reliability, more desirable accessibility).

In this booklet, fresh study works are pronounced round the triptych: “transport, strength and environment”, which demonstrates that automobile applied sciences and fuels can nonetheless enhance, however it is critical to organize their implementation (e.g. electro-mobility), to think about new companies, and to contain all actors, rather businesses, who often is the drivers of innovation. Mitigation recommendations are studied to advertise cutting edge, multimodal and fresh transports and prone. study development is said on pollution, vibrations and noise, their mitigation and evaluate methodologies.

Climate Change Policy in the European Union

The eu Union (EU) has emerged as a number one governing physique within the foreign fight to control weather switch. The transformation that has happened in its rules and associations has profoundly affected weather swap politics on the overseas point and inside its 27 Member States. yet how has this been completed while the ecu contains such a lot of degrees of governance, whilst political management in Europe is so dispersed and the coverage offerings are particularly tough?

International Energy and Poverty: The emerging contours (Routledge Studies in Energy Policy)

Round 2. eight billion humans globally, often referred to as the "Other 3rd" or "energy poor", have very little entry to worthy power that meets their wishes for cooking, heating, water, sanitation, illumination, transportation, or simple mechanical energy. This publication uniquely integrates the hitherto segmented and fragmented methods to the problem of entry to power.

Climate Change and Displacement: Multidisciplinary Perspectives

This ebook - now on hand in paperback - brings jointly a number of disciplinary views at the phenomenon of climate-induced displacement. It deals a rigorous holistic research of the phenomenon, in an effort to greater tell educational figuring out and coverage improvement alike. each one bankruptcy identifies key matters that have to be thought of in shaping family, nearby, and overseas responses, together with the advanced reasons of move, the conceptualization of migration responses to weather switch, the terminology that are meant to be used to explain those that circulate, and attitudes to migration that could impact judgements to stick or depart.

For a number of reasons, such as improved battery performance and changes in emission performance standards, sometime in the next ten years electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles (EV and PHEV)1 are likely to begin to gradually replace vehicles using internal combustion engines. g. noise), but some conditions are still keeping EVs from a full rollout on the market. In some niche markets, EVs are already performing well, and EVs are gradually being introduced to more markets thanks to a large number of national and local demonstration initiatives.

One of the goals of Green eMotion is to create an ICT system concept for the Europewide electromobility services marketplace (including definition of the requisite interfaces) and to demonstrate it. Almost all the 10 Green eMotion demo regions in Europe are using this business-to-business (B2B) marketplace, linking their IT systems to the marketplace via open standard interfaces. The test phase, which began in September 2012, comprises functions used for locating charging points and clarifying charging contracts with third-party providers (roaming).

2. Reggio Emilia PS overview Data will still be collected from the vehicles as well as from questionnaires administered to drivers, in order to identify any change in driving behavior or users’ perception. The use of only subjective data provides a different level of reliability than objective data gathered from data loggers installed onboard in vehicles. However, given the aims of this project, the use of self-reported questionnaires is recommended because it permits collection of data about phenomena which are not directly observable, such as user acceptance, driver reactions, users’ willingness to pay for the services, users’ acceptance system and so on.
