100%RES ~

Or 100PRE are abbreviations, collective names for energy provider systems that use renewable energy to 100%.

Algorithm ~

A series of steps from the beginning of a task to its solution

Algorithmic thinking ~

We use algorithmic thinking on a day-to-day basis in everyday living, learning and working, we create algorithms for others, series of activities, and we plan out information flow processes. If someone wants to really understand the world he or she has to know and understand the bases of these activities. It has multiple levels.

BEI ~

The abbreviation of Baseline Emission Inventory, the base numbers of carbon dioxide equivalent emission of a specific analyzed area which can be compared to pollutant emission savings. The starting point and an indispensable part of a SEAP document.

Biomass ~

Biomass is vegetation that can be used in energetics for energy generation.

BioSNG ~

The abbreviation of Bio Synthetic Natural Gas. The word „Synthetic „ refers to its manufacturing process which uses multiple types of renewable energy.

CNG ~

The abbreviation of Compressed Natural Gas. This type of fuel is a suitable propellant for internal combustion engines as such it provides other uses for methane or BioSNG.

CO2eq ~

It is the converted carbon dioxide equivalent of greenhouse gasses. The most common greenhouse gasses are carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide.

Digital literacy ~

Digital literacy contains knowledge that has been developed to skills which enable users to utilize the opportunities provided by computers e.g.: word-processors, spreadsheets, and the use and understating of other application software. The general knowledge of networks and the Internet is strongly connected to this and the importance of multimedia applications is also increasing. The role of e-administration and e-government is also incrementally expanding. These new opportunities are changing the traditional learning processes, the use of e-learning is also on the increase which provides opportunities for everyone to learn at home at their own pace.

EE ~

Energy efficiency, the solution or execution of a given task or function with the least amount of energy needed. For example, the heating demand of buildings can be reduced by improving the insulation of the building, or using compact fluorescent lamps that provide the same amount of illumination instead of using traditional light bulbs can also increase energy efficiency. 

Units of Measurement: kWh/m2*a; GJ/t, kWh/km

Energy efficiency is not the same as energy saving. Energy saving means some level of limitation of a function or a task.

EGS ~

The abbreviation of Enhanced Geothermal System. It is essentially the use of the geothermal heat produced by deep rock layers without geothermally heated groundwater, using the rock itself as heat exchanger.

EV ~

The abbreviation of Electric Vehicle.

GHG ~

It is the abbreviation of Greenhouse Gas, this is a compilation of gasses that cause the Greenhouse effect to intensify. Carbon dioxide is most commonly associated with this but methane (CH4), mono-nitrogen oxides (NOx), nitrous oxide (N2O)  and other substances and compounds also affect it (but sulfur dioxide (SO2)  does not).

H2020 ~

The Horizon 2020 is a European Union innovation, research and development policy for 2014-2020. Its objective is to improve the global competitiveness of the continent prioritizing the innovating projects of the energetics sector, in smart energy, smart home and smart mobility subjects among others.

IPCC ~

The abbreviation of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change organization.

ORC ~

The abbreviation of Organic Rankine Cycle. This process enables the utilization of low temperature (mostly renewable) heat sources for producing electricity.

PV ~

The abbreviation of Photovoltaic which is also the collective name of devices, systems, and technology that uses solar power to produce electricity.

Programming language ~

A programming language is used in computing, it’s a series of instructions that can be read and understand by people which can be used to directly or indirectly (e.g. after translating into computer code) communicate instructions to a computer on how to execute a task.

Sustainable Energy Action Plan ~

Or in abbreviated form SEAP.  It’s a local level energetics strategy which aims for at least 20% carbon oxide emission saving by the year of 2020 in the entire local area (population, public buildings, and industry). 

SEAP ~

Sustainable Energy Action Plan.  It’s a local level energetics strategy which aims for at least 20% carbon oxide emission saving by the year of 2020 in the entire local area (population, public buildings, and industry). 

Smart City ~

Smart City is the name of a settlement that was developed covering sustainability and well-being on every area by using cutting edge technology.

Smart Energy ~

The coordination and management of renewable energy sources is more challenging than the coordination of fossil fuel energy providers because they depend on factors that cannot be influenced, like the weather.  The coordination of these require complex energy management. Renewable energy that was managed in this way is called Smart Energy.

Smart Home ~

An energetics element of Smart City energy providing. It is basically the buildings that use the smart coordination of home energy consumers, energy providers and energy storages.

Smart Mobility ~

The collective name for transportation methods that fit in a smart city energy providing system. Their importance in sustainable energy providing is indisputable.
