Sustainable Economy, New Technologies, Global Responsibility: How do we Reach our Goal? 信息技术和可持续发展产业政策

14 October 2011

Information Technology (IT) is necessary for building smart infrastructure and production systems, to reduce pollution and improve resource efficiency. As a key enabler of a Sustainable Industrial Policy, IT is of great interest to the economic development in China. R. Andreas Kraemer of Ecologic Institute spoke on IT and smart systems for environmental objectives to a delegation from Sichuan province.

The event was part of a study tour to Germany on "Information Technology and Sustainable Industrial Policy" promoted by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für InternationaleRead more

Regional Availability of Climate Knowledge in the Baltic Sea Region

December 2010 to November 2011

Efforts are underway to make climate data in the Baltic Sea region more easily accessible. As part of a project supported by the International Bureau of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), from December 2010 on, exchange between representatives of science and practice from Germany, Poland, Sweden and other Baltic Sea countries will be strengthened.

Ecologic Institute and the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht Centre for Materials and Coastal Research, supported by other RADOST partners and in cooperation with the University of Szczecin in PolandRead more

Biodiversity of Freshwater Ecosystems: Status, Trends, Pressures, and Conservation Priorities (BioFresh)

November 2009 to April 2014

Freshwater biodiversity patterns and the processes that maintain them at European and global scale are poorly understood for most freshwater organisms. The BioFresh FP7 project built a public biodiversity information platform to bring together the vast amount of information on freshwater biodiversity currently scattered among a wide range of databases. This portal allows scientists and planners to evaluate and examine how freshwater biodiversity responds to environmental pressures for more effective conservation planning.

Trade for Sustainable Development - ITC Standards Map

October 2009 to July 2010
The project aims to enhance transparency on voluntary sustainability standards and increase opportunities for sustainable trade. It addresses these challenges by collecting, organizing and disseminating information on voluntary sustainability standards and related research results in a web-based tool. This web-based tool called ITC Standards Map centralizes information such as the standards' content requirements, the related verification and certification mechanisms, product scope, market outreach and standards-related research results. The information is made accessible to producers, exporters, trade promotion organizations, trade support institutions, policy-makers, and intermediate private or public buyers.Read more

Power Grid 2.0: Will the Information Technology Fairy Kiss and Wake the Electric Utilities?

27 February 2008
On 27 February 2008, an Ecologic Dinner Dialogue was held in honour of Suedeen Kelly, Commissioner at the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). In her initial remarks, Suedeen Kelly pointed out that many electric utilities in the United States are indeed aware of the potential new grid technologies have – the “fairy kiss” by information technology seems to be happening. However, the deployment of smart grids is not going to happen on its own. Read more

Smart Grids – Future Electricity Grids in a Transatlantic Learning Center at the CSD 15

March 2007 to May 2007
Combinations of electrical, information and communication technologies allow for Smart Grids to provide dynamic efficiency for power generation, transmission and distribution. Ecologic took the lead in preparing a Learning Centre on the current state and potential of Smart Grids at the 15th Session of the UN Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD 15). The course highlighted the benefits of smart grids for an increased use of variable renewable power sources, while enhancing energy security, stabilising electricity grids and reducing the need for reserve capacity, leading to economic benefits and reduced carbon dioxide emission.Read more
