Energy Internet and eVehicles Overview
Governments around the world are wrestling with the challenge of how to prepare society for inevitable climate change. To date most people have been focused on how to reduce Green House Gas emissions, but now there is growing recognition that regardless of what we do to mitigate against climate change the planet is going to be significantly warmer in the coming years with all the attendant problems of more frequent droughts, flooding, sever storms, etc. As such we need to invest in solutions that provide a more robust and resilient infrastructure to withstand this environmental onslaught especially for our electrical and telecommunications systems and at the same time reduce our carbon footprint.
Linking renewable energy with high speed Internet using fiber to the home combined with autonomous eVehicles and dynamic charging where vehicle's batteries are charged as it travels along the road, may provide for a whole new "energy Internet" infrastructure for linking small distributed renewable energy sources to users that is far more robust and resilient to survive climate change than today's centralized command and control infrastructure. These new energy architectures will also significantly reduce our carbon footprint. For more details please see:

Another innovative low carbon brokered cloud strategy - Mastodon C
[Mastodon C is a new service from Magic Dashboards, a London-based startup.It helps developers and data scientists to minimize their environmental impact, by sending their Hadoop jobs to the greenest available locations, without reducing their productivity or significantly increasing cost.
The project use Jbroker for brokering Hadoop cloud jobs to AWS sites.
The project was born at the 2012 London Green Hackathon. If you'd like to see the project in its most nascent form, you can read the coverage on the AMEE Blog.—BSA]
It is great to see so many research and commercial organizations pursuing zero carbon or low carbon cloud/network initiatives including:
Hewlett-Packard, AMD, Clarkson University GreenCloud

Calculating of your cloud computing carbon footprint
An excellent paper calculating cloud/network carbon footprint can be found at http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpls/abs_all.jsp?arnumber=6008718
Graph of past 24 hour carbon footprint of whole network is provided in every minutes. History videos are available here:
