Digitalization era and the omnipresence of information systems and technologies in our everyday lives lead to the growing energy demand, which further induces magnified exploitation of energy resources. This results in the increase of environmental degradation. . The digital era we live in thus sets new challenges that need to be addressed by today’s generation. These challenges are parts of a global attempt to reach the equilibrium between enabling future generations to fulfill their potentials in harmony with the ecological, energy and socio-cultural changes that await them in the world with exponential population growth, and energy demand on the planet with finite resources.
