  1. 1. Energy Analysis of the Closed Greenhouse Concept Towards a Sustainable Energy Pathway

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Amir Vadiee; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; thermal energy storage; closed greenhouse; energy analysis; energy management; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : The closed greenhouse is an innovative concept in sustainable energy management. The closed greenhouse can be considered as a large commercial solar building. In principle, it is designed to maximize the utilization of solar energy through seasonal storage. In a fully closed greenhouse, there are not any ventilation windows. READ MORE

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Saman Nimali Gunasekara; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; thermal energy storage TES ; phase change material PCM ; phase diagram; congruent melting; compound; solid solution; eutectic; peritectic; Energiteknik; Energy Technology; Materials Science and Engineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : Climate change is no longer imminent but eminent. To combat climate change, effective, efficient and smart energy use is imperative. Thermal energy storage (TES) with phase change materials (PCMs) is one attractive choice to realize this. READ MORE

  3. 3. Molecular Solar Thermal Energy Storage System: Evaluation of Different Candidates

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Zhihang Wang; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy storage and release; Vinylheptafulvene; Catalyst; Quadricyclane; Solar Energy; Thermal dynamics; Molecular switches; Azobenzene; Norbornadiene; Energy conversion; Dihydroazulene;

    Abstract : The development of solar energy can potentially meet the growing requirements for a global energy system beyond fossil fuels, however necessitates new scalable technologies for solar energy storage. One approach is the development of energy storage systems based on molecular photoswitches, so-called molecular solar thermal energy storage (MOST). READ MORE

  4. 4. Energy Management in Large scale Solar Buildings The Closed Greenhouse Concept

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Amir Vadiee; KTH.; [2013]
