Katende, J. ICT APPLICATIONS IN ENERGY MANAGEMENT. ICT APPLICATIONS IN ENERGY MANAGEMENT.
The quest for energy and more energy has always been, and will continue to be, prominent in the global sustainable development agenda. Fears have been expressed about possibility of exhaustion of energy resources if the rapidly depleting natural and artificial resources are not replenished, or if the growing world population is not controlled. Energy scarcity and crisis are common causes of social, economic and political woes. Even renewable supplements and alternative energy sources so far discovered have not met the minimal energy demand of the world. Therefore, this paper considers potential applications of ICT in efficient energy management and saving; some of the associated threats or challenges of ICTs are also discussed.
