  1. 21. Latent Heat Thermal Energy Storage for Indoor Comfort Control

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : NingWei Justin Chiu; Viktoria Martin; Motoi Yamaha; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Thermal Energy Storage; Phase Change Material; Indoor Comfort; Heat Transfer; Termisk Energilagring; Fasändringsmaterial; Inomhuskomfort; Värmeöverföring;

    Abstract : Equating Earth’s existence to 24 hours, we, the Homo sapiens, came about in the last four seconds. Fossil fuel came to our knowledge with mass extraction dating from the Industrial Revolution two centuries ago, in other words 4 milliseconds out of Earth’s 24-hour equivalent lifetime. READ MORE

  2. 22. Energy Feedback and Demand Response Strategies Exploring Household Engagement and Response Using a Mixed Methods Approach

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Anders Nilsson; Maria Malmström; Cajsa Bartusch; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy feedback; demand response; household energy consumption; energy efficiency and conservation; demand flexibility; smart grids; smart homes; Industriell ekologi; Industrial Ecology;

    Abstract : Real-time energy feedback (EF) and demand response using dynamic pricing tariffs (DR) have been suggested as effective intervention strategies to meet the need for increased energy efficiency and demand flexibility in the residential sector. Although previous studies provide some empirical support for the effectiveness of EF and DR, evaluation approaches used in practical experiments and field trials commonly suffer from several methodological shortcomings, preventing deeper of knowledge on the potential and barriers for EF and DR to influence household energy consumption.

  3. 23. The future load curve of the Swedish building stock – Interactions between the heating load and district heating

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Dmytro Romanchenko; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; thermal energy storage; District heating; demand response; buildings; optimisation; space heating;

    Abstract : In line with global efforts directed against climate change, the building sector is required to undergo significant changes in terms of its energy management. This is the case for both the use of energy (reduced energy consumption) and the supply of energy (heat and electricity), and how these two interact. READ MORE

  4. 24. Operability Considerations for Retrofit Design of Industrial Process Energy Systems

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Sofie Marton; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Interviews; Steam System; Heat integration; Implementation; Operability; Non-energy benefits;

    Abstract : Energy efficiency is crucial to reduce fuel usage and related emissions in industry.  In energy-intensive process industry, the use of heat accounts for a large share of the total energy use and a reduction of the heating and cooling demand is thus important for decreasing energy use.

  5. 25. Decentralization in the electricity system: At the household, community and city levels

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Verena Heinisch; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Smart city; Storage systems; Power-to-heat; Optimization; Energy system modeling; Photovoltaic; Decentralization; Community energy; Prosumers;

    Abstract : Recent years have seen a rise in the number of implementations of small-scale generation and storage technologies for electricity and heat at different levels in the energy system. This trend towards decentralization of the system is driven by rapid decrease in technology costs, as well as the intentions expressed by various stakeholders to contribute to a carbon-neutral energy system.
