電気自動車:可能性と計画


電気自動車:可能性と計画

商用車、地方自治体車、および自家用車の電化は現在、急速に進んでいます。ロンドン市とノルウェーは、3年足らずで、内燃機関車の販売を段階的に廃止することを目標としています。2030年までに、世界中の多くの国が同様の計画をしています。商業組織と公的組織は、この重要な変化の時期をスムーズにナビゲートし、その機会を最大限に活用するために、洞察と情報に基づいた計画を策定する必要があります。

これは、シミュレーションモデルが車両電化の適応にどのように役立つかを示すケーススタディと研究です。

Oil production maintenance planning at Argentina’s largest company


Oil production maintenance planning at Argentina’s largest company

YPF is the largest oil producer in Argentina. It has 43% of the oil and gas production market and 58% of the gasoline market in the country. They hired consultants from Continente Siete to develop a decision support system (DSS) for determining work schedules.

The new maintenance planning system helped YPF save $18 million annually at the pilot implementation site. Forecasts suggest, the integration of the DSS with the work processes of other sites should save the company another $234 million per year.

Modeling Intelligent Energy Systems for Cities and Regions


Modeling Intelligent Energy Systems for Cities and Regions

As the hubs of economic activity, cities drive the vast majority of the world’s energy use and are major contributors to global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Nowadays, roughly half of the world’s population is living in urban areas, and this share is increasing over time, projected to reach 60% by 2030. Cities are responsible for the largest consumption of energy resources worldwide – between 60 to 80% – and account for a roughly equal share of global CO2 emissions. The European Institute for Energy Research (EIFER) is a European economic interest group whose mission is to develop know-how and innovative solutions and products for the management of energy and related economic and environmental questions. Dr. Enrique Kremers from EIFER evaluates energy policies and their impact on reducing energy consumption to improve energy efficiency.
