  1. 1. Realise the Potential! Cost Effective and Energy Efficient District Heating in European Urban Areas

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Urban Persson; Högskolan i Halmstad.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; District heating; energy efficiency; distribution capital cost; heat density; plot ratio; excess heat recovery; sequential energy supply; heat utilisation; effective width; district heating;

    Abstract : The Member States of EU27 need to accelerate the integration of energy efficient technology solutions to reach the 20% energy efficiency target set for 2020. At current pace, projections indicate that only half of expected primary energy reductions will be reached. READ MORE

  2. 2. Management of Sustainability in Construction Works

    University dissertation from Division of Construction Management, Lund Institute of Technology

    Author : Urban Persson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; construction works; assessment model; sustainability; Management;

    Abstract : The present global environmental condition is a consequence of the increasing consumption of natural resources whose depletion exceeds what is physically possible to sustain in the long term. The construction sector is a considerable contributor to this resource depletion and sustainability is adopted in the form of the theory of ecological modernization. READ MORE

  3. 3. District heating in future Europe Modelling expansion potentials and mapping heat synergy regions

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Urban Persson; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; district heating; energy efficiency; distribution capital cost; heat demand density; plot ratio; excess heat recovery; sequential energy supply; heat utilisation rate; effective width;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a set of methodologies and approaches to investigate and determine the extent by which district heating can contribute to improved energy system efficiency and reduced carbon dioxide emissions in future Europe. The main motivation for suggesting large-scale implementation of district heating as a structural energy efficiency measure to obtain these objectives originates essentially in the predicament that a majority of European buildings today remain highly dependent on fossil fuels to provide energy needed for space heating and hot water preparation.

  4. 4. The Railway Station and The Interregional Traveller - traveller preferences and implications for the planning process

    University dissertation from Lund University Faculty of Engineering, Technology and Society, Transport and Roads, Lund, Sweden

    Author : Cristina Prather Persson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1998]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Samhällsvetenskaper; Social sciences; service; location; planning; preferences; railway; station; traveller; Technological sciences; Teknik;

    Abstract : The interregional traveller’s preferences of railway stations, their service provision and location, are of interest in the discussion of station reinvention brought on by the introduction of high speed train traffic. A railway station is created by station as well as societal agents, and can be described as a synthesis of symbolic value, location, traffic, services and stationscape. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Unloading Modulus of Soft Soil: A Field and Laboratory Study

    University dissertation from Lund University Faculty of Engineering, Technology and Society, Transport and Roads, Lund, Sweden

    Author : Jenny Persson; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; swelling; heave; Clay; case study; excavation;

    Abstract : Improved infrastructure in urban areas often necessitates underground construction, where the unloading behaviour of the soil is of importance for predicting the amount of heave and how long it will take for the soil to swell. It is of particular interest to study the need for the installation of tension piles, as well as whether the tunnel will be subjected to settlement or heave in the long term. READ MORE
