  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

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Fjärrvärme är en väletablerad teknik som främst används för uppvärmning av byggnader och varmvatten. I Sverige värms över 80% av flerbostadshusen med fjärrvärme, vilket innebär att de flesta svenskar faktiskt bor i ett fjärrvärmeuppvärmt hus. READ MORE

  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

  5. 5. Modelling drivers of energy demand in the European Union building sector

    University dissertation from Huddinge : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Eoin Ó Broin; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; EU; Elasticities; Heating; Policy; Bottom-up; Top-down; Efficiency; Residential;

    Abstract : In the context of ongoing initiatives within the European Union (EU) to tackle global warming and to secure future energy supplies, the building sector is often cited as offering strong potential for energy savings. The primary aims of this thesis are to analyse the historical data related to EU building and to generate scenarios that highlight the technical and non-technical parameters that affect the energy demands (and thereby the potentials for savings) of the building sector.
