It is the mother of civilization, of Arts and of Sciences. Technology continues to grow to liberate mankind from the . "The book provides an extensive overview of natural resources and societal issues associated with extracting raw materials."

This benefi t is so sizable that it could easily justify a larger share of wind energy in most European countries, even if wind were more.

The orchestration of these novel technologies, so-called cyber-physical systems (CPS), provides further, synergetic effects that increase efficiency of energy provision and industrial production, thereby optimising economic feasibility and environmental : Oliver Inderwildi, Chuan Zhang, Xiaonan Wang, Markus Kraft, Markus Kraft.
