In smart grids the formerly separated worlds of energy and telecommunication converge to an interactive and automated energy supply system. Driven by social, legal, and economic pressures, energy systems around the globe are updated with information and communication technology. These investments aim at enhancing energy efficiency, securing affordable energy supply, and mitigate climate change. In Broadband Networks, Smart Grids and Climate Change, renowned scholars and managers from the fields of energy and telecommunication address key questions related to technological, strategic, and regulatory issues revealing consequences and opportunities for businesses evolving with smart grids. IT has transformed many industries now it is energy s turn! This important book will guide readers through smart grids, the interconnection of broadband and energy systems and its implications: more efficient, greener and more responsive to consumers/producers. Leonard Waverman, Dean of the Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary and Fellow of the London Business School The energy supply system will change dramatically in the years to come, and information and communication technologies will play a pivotal role in this transition. If you wish to understand in-depth how policy, regulation and businesses can leverage and harness this transition for sustainable economic growth this book offers an excellent starting point. Dr. Ingo Vogelsang, Professor of Economics, Boston University A persuasive linking of three major policy inquiries through the advanced technologies for each. Celebration of technology is fine, but perspective about it is still better. Makes for a timely course all in one collection. Douglas N. Jones, Professor (emeritus) of Regulatory Economics, The John Glenn School of Public Affairs and Director (emeritus), The National Regulatory Research Institute, The Ohio State University. To developed countries smart grids offer an enormous opportunity to decarbonize their energy supply systems. But also for emerging countries the synergies between information and communication technologies and the energy system establish opportunities for economic growth without wasting resources and environmental degradation. For both initial situations this book offers valuable insights for scholars, policy makers and practitioners. Dr. Joachim von Braun, Director of the Center for Development Research (ZEF Bonn) and Professor of Economics and Technological Change, University of Bonn

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 1,3, University of Applied Sciences Bonn-Rhein-Sieg ; Rheinbach, language: English, abstract: In Business Development, Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) have become an increasingly attractive growth opportunity among companies over a long period of time. Nowadays, there is hardly a day where current developments of ongoing M&A transactions or speculations about presumed M&A deals cannot be followed in the daily press. Other external growth opportunities, such as strategic alliances, joint ventures, and franchising (inorganic growth) are still behind M&A as a strategic alternative. Organic growth, which can be achieved by increasing sales personnel, developing new products or expanding in new geographical areas, presents another alternative. Nonetheless, M&A are often preferred because they provide a faster way to enter new markets and to make operations more efficient. Moreover, the constantly increasing global competition, strengthened through lowered market entry barriers and trade enhancing conventions between several countries, contribute to an increased consolidation pressure among businesses. However, it turned out that M&A are fairly sensitive projects that are vulnerable to fail. It is proved that a huge number of M&A did not deliver on their promises. The majority of failed M&A are a result of mismanagement during the Post Merger Inte-gration (PMI) when processes have to be adjusted, personnel need to be teamed up and corporate cultures have to be reconciled. During the PMI, synergies, as the dominant motive for M&A, which are identified before the transaction, have to be realized. However, synergies can frequently not be realized due to a poor quality of information, a high level of complexity or bad implementation strategies. In spite of these difficulties, many companies have not established a well-functioning synergy management and synergy tracking in their organizational structures yet. This thesis deals predominantly with aspects of synergy management whereby the main focus is on synergy tracking as a support function of the synergy management. An emphasis is on the analysis of realization efforts that need to be done by the management during the PMI. To provide a solution and ease the aforementioned issues of synergy realization, a synergy tracking tool, which serves as an effective support instrument during the PMI is developed.

Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 1,3, International University of Applied Sciences Bad Honnef - Bonn, course: Current Issues in Accounting and Finance, language: English, abstract: In a time, where globalization and global prosperity foster a continuous chasing after outstanding business success, environmental and social aspects are more and more taking a back seat in the decision-making processes of organizations. With a world population of nearly seven billion people and an expected growth to more than nine billion people by the year 2050 (UN, 2008), the urgency to preserve the resources of the world is now greater than ever. Due to this global situation, the importance of corporate sustainability as an integral part of organizations' strategic directions is increasing gradually. Additionally, customers' growing awareness for environmentally friendly products and actions is further boosting the pressure on companies to act in a sustainable manner. Although first steps towards an eco-friendly future have been done in the fields of mobility and efficient consumption of energy and materials, continuous improvements in environmental and social aspects are crucial. Responding to external pressure, corporations have started to implement sustainability in their businesses. However, some firms are being accused of pursuing a sustainability strategy only, to satisfy expectations of the public society. Although the real intentions for a company's business actions are difficult to determine, at least the number of organizations that have integrated sustainability into their business has increased, according to a study of PwC (2010). Referring to this research, which took only German firms into account, about 75% of the participants have connected sustainability at least to some of their core business areas. Furthermore, every fourth of the surveyed companies has increased its sustainability engagement. The main driver for that is seen in the pressure of society, media and NGOs, which reflects the high public awareness for topics related to environmental, social and economic aspects. Despite many companies are showing the will to work on their sustainability performance, many of those fail because they are not communicating their strategic direction internally and are lacking adequate measures to report the impacts of respective actions. According to the study of PwC, only half of the surveyed companies analyze the impacts of their sustainability initiatives from an efficiency and productivity point of view.
