Abstract

IT will play a key role on the next sustainable energy systems, at all levels of society (building, community, districts, cities). The exemplar application of IT technologies are the settlements. Positive energy settlements is a core topic under the development of near future energy scenarios. They will represent one on the nodes of the next multilevel energy society, the smaller. +energy building will be able to produce thermal power for heating, cooling and hot water, electrical power and biofuels from domestic wastes, plus energy storage for thermal and electrical energy, in order to buffer the exchange of energy with the grid and allowing the energy auto consumption at local level. Indeed enabling factors are not merely on the technological side. A technology development is required to allow a series of potentialities (retrofitting of technologies, adaptability and economical viability, integration and hybridization of technologies), but emerging factors will be determinant for the exploitation of the theme. IT is recognized as one enabling factor for technologies in different context, both from the side of retrofitting technologies and actions to improve the end-user behaviours and it will play a key role in the energy context at all levels.
