SBE 2020: Submission Detail

ID Number: 156
Title: Energy Informatics
Lead Author: Watson, Richard T
Abstract: Our civilization is built upon energy and information systems. These two disciplines, however, are studied independently. Energy systems, in the form of fossil fuels, have changed the environment dramatically in the last three centuries. Information systems have profoundly altered human interaction and our cooperative structures in the last five decades. We are dependent upon energy to run our information systems, and we are dependent on information systems to manage our energy systems. Energy informatics is a proposed new discipline that jointly studies the two great shaping forces of modern society. It has the potential to provide significant solutions to global climate change and the creation of a sustainable society.
