  1. 1. Achieving building energy performance requirements and evaluation methods for residential buildings in Sweden, Norway, and Finland

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Ingrid Allard; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; building codes; energy performance; evaluation methods; air tightness;

    Abstract : Building energy performance has always been important in the cold climate of Sweden, Norway and Finland. To meet the goal that all new buildings should be nearly zero-energy buildings by 2020, set in the EU directive 2010/31/EU [1] on the energy performance of buildings (EPBD recast), the building sector in Europe now faces a transition towards buildings with improved energy performance.

  2. 2. Solar PV in prosumer energy systems A techno-economic analysis on sizing, integration, and risk

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Nelson Sommerfeldt; KTH.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Electrify everything; building energy systems; energy systems analysis; solar heat pump; investment analysis; Monte Carlo analysis; PVT; solar hybrid; Electrify everything; byggnadsenergisystem; energisystemanalys; solvärmepump; investeringsanalys; Monte Carlo analys; PVT; solhybrid; Energiteknik; Energy Technology; Planering och beslutsanalys; Planning and Decision Analysis;

    Abstract : In the transition towards a sustainable energy system, building mounted solar photovoltaics (PV) have unique benefits; they require no additional land and the energy is generated directly at load centers. Within residential buildings, multi-family homes (MFH) are particularly interesting because of the economies of scale and their greater potential for emissions reductions. READ MORE

  3. 3. A Rational Exergy Management Model to Curb CO2 Emissions in the Exergy-Aware Built Environments of the Future

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Siir Kilkis; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Exergy; CO2 emissions; built environment; buildings; energy system; scenario-based analysis; mitigation strategies; net-zero; LEED; energy transition; transition management; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : This thesis puts forth the means of a strategic approach to address a persistent problem in the energy system and in this way, to transition the built environment to a future state that is more exergy-aware to curb CO2 emissions. Such a vision is made possible by the six-fold contributions of the research work: I) An analytical model is developed, which for the first time, formulates the CO2 emissions that are compounded in the energy system as a function of the systematic failures to match the supply and demand of exergy.

  4. 4. Planning for Solar Buildings in Urban Environments

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Jouri Kanters; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; architecture; design tool; design process; solar energy; urban planning; photovoltaics; solar thermal; building integration; density; net zero energy buildings; interviews; parametric studies; action research;

    Abstract : Energy use in buildings accounts for a significant proportion of the total energy use in many countries. While past and current buildings have solely been energy consumers, future buildings will, besides using less energy, also need to produce (part of ) the required energy on site with renewables.

  5. 5. Evaluating energy efficient buildings : Energy- and moisture performance considering future climate change

    University dissertation from Department of Architecture and Built Environment, Lund University

    Author : Björn Berggren; [2019-05-21]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Net Zero Energy Building; passive house; thermal bridge; building envelope; energy performance; moisture performance; multi criteria decision making; climate change; climate scenarios; EN ISO 13789; EN ISO 10211;

    Abstract : One of the greatest challenges the world is facing is climate change. The need of reduction of energy use and an increased use of renewable energy in buildings constitutes important climate change mitigation measures. READ MORE
