Greening for Bosons

Abstract
Throughout history, scientific advancement has

been dependent upon advances in the technologies of

research. However, branches of research that today rely

on Research Infrastructures (RIs) such as accelerators

require technological investments so large that multination

collaborations are required to fund them. Modern

accelerator science also has massive (and increasing)

energy needs, yet the very provision of secure, equitable,

clean and cost effective energy is one of the greatest

sustainability challenges facing society. Modern energy

provision systems are fundamental to development, yet

also constitute one of the greatest threats to... (More)
Throughout history, scientific advancement has

been dependent upon advances in the technologies of

research. However, branches of research that today rely

on Research Infrastructures (RIs) such as accelerators

require technological investments so large that multination

collaborations are required to fund them. Modern

accelerator science also has massive (and increasing)

energy needs, yet the very provision of secure, equitable,

clean and cost effective energy is one of the greatest

sustainability challenges facing society. Modern energy

provision systems are fundamental to development, yet

also constitute one of the greatest threats to sustainability

via their contribution to environmental degradation and

climate change. This paper works from a premise that any

new proposal for investment in an RI should credibly

demonstrate that it would deliver more value than cost to

society. As our understanding of the negative impacts of

energy use grows, the demonstration of overall value

creation has become more complex; it must now include

consideration of an RI’s ‘energy system footprint’.

Programs to reduce the energy footprint can help address

this delicate balance. This paper uses experiences in the

development of the European Spallation Source (ESS) in

Sweden to demonstrate how credible programs to

improve the energy performance of an RI can take form. (Less)
