  1. 1. Dynamics of Energy Systems - Methods of analysing technology change

    Author : Lena Neij; Internationella miljöinstitutet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy research; evaluation; market transformation; PV modules; wind power; experience curves; air-distribution; lighting; vintage models; sustainable energy; renewable energy; energy efficiency; Energy; energy system; Energiforskning; Environmental technology; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp;

    Abstract : Technology change will have a central role in achieving a sustainable energy system. This calls for methods of analysing the dynamics of energy systems in view of technology change and policy instruments for effecting and accelerating technology change. In this thesis, such methods have been developed, applied, and assessed. READ MORE

  2. 2. By Means of Beams : Laser Patterning and Stability in CIGS Thin Film Photovoltaics

    Author : Per-Oskar Westin; Marika Edoff; Uwe Zimmermann; Lars Stolt; Friedrich Kessler; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Laser patterning; laser ablation; laser micro-welding; stability; Cu InGa Se2; CIGS; thin film solar cells; thin film photovoltaics; module technology; solar energy; Electronics; Elektronik; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektronik; Engineering Science with specialization in Electronics;

    Abstract : Solar irradiation is a vast and plentiful source of energy. The use of photovoltaic (PV) devices to convert solar energy directly to electrical energy is an elegant way of sustainable power generation which can be distributed or in large PV plants based on the need. READ MORE

  3. 3. Retrofitted Solar Domestic Hot Water System for Single-Family Electrically-Heated Houses: Development and testing

    Author : Ricardo Bernardo; Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Solar domestic hot water; retrofitting; single family electrically heated houses; high solar fraction; photovoltaic thermal concentrating hybrids; PVT; parabolic reflectors; CPC thermal collector.;

    Abstract : In Sweden, there are roughly half a million single family houses that use electric heating for both domestic hot water production and space heating. Since electricity is the most expensive energy source in Sweden, it is interesting to install a high solar fraction solar thermal system to reduce the energy use in these houses. READ MORE

  4. 4. An evaluation of solar powered irrigation as carbon offset projects

    Author : Alexander Olsson; Jinyue Yan; Björn Frostell; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; carbon offset; carbon sequestration; clean development mechanism; climate change adaptation; desertification; solar power water pumping; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : Carbon offsets have been developed as one tool to incentivise investments by developed nations in climate change mitigation activities in developing countries. The carbon offsets can be used towards the countries’ own mitigation targets but are also meant to benefit developing countries by providing a pathway to clean development. READ MORE

  5. 5. Organic electronic devices for solar energy conversion and storage

    Author : Yingzhi Jin; Fengling Zhang; Niclas Solin; Mats Fahlman; Anna Köhler; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on two types of organic electronic devices: organic photovoltaic (OPV) devices for solar energy conversion, and photo-capacitors for energy storage.OPVs have been under the focus of research for decades as an effective technique to convert solar energy to electricity.
