  1. 1. Energy Management in Large scale Solar Buildings : The Closed Greenhouse Concept

    Author : Amir Vadiee; Viktoria Martin; Philip Griffiths; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Thermal Energy Storage; Energy Saving; Thermoeconomic Assessment; Energy Management Scenario; Micro Climate Control; Solar Building; Closed Greenhouse; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : Sustainability has been at the centre of global attention for decades. One of the most challenging areas toward sustainability is the agricultural sector. Here, the commercial greenhouse is one of the most effective cultivation methods with a yield per cultivated area up to 10 times higher than for open land farming. READ MORE

    Abstract : Increased energy performance of the building stock of European Union is seen as an important measure towards mitigating climate change, increasing resource utilisation efficiency and energy supply security. Whether to improve the supply-side, the demand-side or both is an open issue. READ MORE

  3. 3. Plan and Reality : Municipal Energy Plans and Development of Local Energy Systems

    Author : Jenny Stenlund Nilsson Ivner; Anders Mårtensson; Bengt Johansson; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Enligt lagen om kommunal energiplanering ska varje svensk kommun ha en energiplan för tillförsel för tillförsel och användning av energi. Huruvida energiplanering är ett bra sätt att styra det kommunala energisystemet är dock omdebatterat. READ MORE

  4. 4. Understanding Energy Behaviour – A Necessity for Supporting Domestic Energy Conservation through Design

    Author : Anneli Selvefors; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; HUMANIORA; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; HUMANITIES; Energy conservation; energy behaviour; domestic energy consumption; design for sustainable behaviour; energy feedback;

    Abstract : Domestic energy consumption is continuing to increase and the need to decrease consumption is growing more evident. In this research, two studies were conducted to further the understanding of domestic energy behaviour and increase the knowledge of how energy conservation can be supported. READ MORE

  5. 5. Perspectives on Demand Side Energy Efficiency

    Author : Olof Björkqvist; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : transaction cost; energy efficiency; energy conservation; viable system model; Markal; demand-side management; local energy planning; organisational cybernetics; reference energy system; decision support; case study;

    Abstract : This work treats recommendations based on energy systems engineering. The focus is on what can be learned by different methods about the roles that demand-side energy efficiency should play in the energy system. READ MORE
