  1. 1. Exploring the Role of Business Models in Large-Scale Diffusion of Solar Photovoltaics - A study of demand-side solar firms in Sweden

    Author : Amanda Bankel; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; firm; innovation; sustainability; Sweden; photovoltaic; business model; diffusion; solar; system; policy;

    Abstract : A rapid and large-scale diffusion of renewable energy technologies, like solar photovoltaics (PV), is crucial to slow down climate change. Research on technology diffusion explains that the rate and scale at which a new technology diffuses in society is influenced by the actors, networks, and institutions that make up its innovation system.

  2. 2. Solar heat pump systems for heating applications : Analysis of system performance and possible solutions for improving system performance

    Author : Stefano Poppi; Per Lundqvist; Chris Bales; Kai Siren; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Solar heat pump systems; techno-economics; solar thermal; system improvements; cost-effectiveness; Energiteknik; Energy Technology; MacSheep;

    Abstract : Solar heat pump systems (SHPs) are systems that combine solar energy and heat pumps. SHPs have been investigated for several decades and have been proven to increase the share of renewable energy and reduce electric energy demand in residential heating applications. READ MORE

  3. 3. Renewing power : Including global asymmetries within the system boundaries of solar photovoltaic technology

    Author : Andreas Roos; Humanekologi; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; solar energy; photovoltaic technology; ecologically unequal exchange; philosophical materialism; social metabolism; political artifacts; authoritarian technics; machine fetishism; environmental justice; environmental sustainability; solar power;

    Abstract : Solar photovoltaic (PV) technology is one of the most favored means of mitigating climate change. At the same time, there is a growing concern over how this technology is both environmentally harmful and unevenly distributed in the world economy. READ MORE

  4. 4. Optical Design for Stationary Solar Concentrators

    Author : Johan Nilsson; Avdelningen för Energi och byggnadsdesign; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; photovoltaic cells; parabolic reflectors; optical efficiency; Solar concentrators; photovoltaic-thermal systems; non-imaging optics; optical properties; building integrated photovoltaics; non uniform irradiance distribution; structured reflectors; solar cell modelling; ray tracing;

    Abstract : Solar electricity is one of the most promising technologies for our future electricity supply. By using concentrators, it is possible to reduce the cost of generating photovoltaic electricity. This thesis discusses how to design stationary low concentrating systems for photovoltaic or PV/Thermal applications. READ MORE
