  1. 1. District heating comes to town : The social shaping of an energy system

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Jane Summerton; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1992]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; district heating; municipal technology; energy system; pipeline; large t<:chnical system; actor network; multiorganization; grid; grid-based energy system; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the introduction of district heating in an "ordinary" Swedish town: Mjölby. The process was initiated in 1974 and the decision to build was taken in 1979. In the following years pipelines were laid down and the system was gradually built. In 1987, a permanent heat plant was ready to assume operation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Infrared Laser Stimulation of Cerebral Cortex Cells - Aspects of Heating and Cellular Responses

    University dissertation from Huddinge : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

  4. 4. Inviting Interaction – Explorations of the district heating interface for people

    University dissertation from Huddinge : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Sara Renström; [2016]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; design; users; residents; district heating; means for thermal comfort;

    Abstract : District heating provides more than half of the homes in Sweden with heating and hot water and have the potential to play an increasingly important role in the development towards fossil-free energy systems – yet it is rather unknown by the public. To understand why this is the case and to influence the situation, this research aims at exploring the district heating interface for people. READ MORE
