  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. Planning for Solar Buildings in Urban Environments

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Jouri Kanters; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [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 : Popular Abstract in Swedish Solenergi kommer att vara en av de viktigaste miljövänliga energikällorna i framtiden, vilket innebär ökat antal solpaneler (för el och värme) som integreras i våra hus men också som fristående produktionsanläggningar. När man planerar framtida hus och stadsdelar är det viktigt att skapa de bästa förutsättningarna för solenergi eftersom hus och stadsdelar finns kvar i flera generationer. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evaluating energy efficient buildings : Energy- and moisture performance considering future climate chang

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

    Author : Björn Berggren; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [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

  4. 4. 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.

  5. 5. Steady state analysis of HVDC grid with Wind Power Plants

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Kalid Yunus; [2017]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ARIMA; electricity price; meshed HVDC grid; WPP; transmission tariff; temporal and spatial correlation; electricity market; VSC HVDC; wind speed modelling; secondary supervisory controller; LRMC; SRMC; PV; primary controller; investment cost;

    Abstract : The idea of building a multi-terminal, even a meshed HVDC grid in the North Sea, that can inter-connect surrounding nations, is being discussed widely. Such a system is expected to be realised in steps through the interconnection of wind power plants and electricity markets. READ MORE
