  2. 2. National Energy System Modelling for Supporting Energy and Climate Policy Decision-making: The Case of Sweden

    University dissertation from Distributed by the Department of Economics, Lund University, Sweden

    Author : Anna Krook-Riekkola; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy Engineering; Energiteknik; climate policy; district heating; TIMES-Sweden; ancillary benefits; energy system models; cross-border trade; energy-economics; soft-linking.; CHP; system analysis;

    Abstract : Energy system models can contribute in evaluating impacts of energy and climate policies. The process of working with energy system models assists the understanding of the quantita-tive relationships between different parts of the energy system and between different time periods, under various assumptions.

  3. 3. Random Models in Time and Space with Financial, Economics and Engineering Applications : Structural Covariance in Space and Stochastic Variability in Time

    University dissertation from Printed in Sweden by Media-Tryck, Lund University

    Author : Nima Shariati; [2018-02-21]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Cross-border spillover; Inter- and intralocation effects; Multivariate spatial regression models; Panel data; Spatial econometric models; Gamma distributed variances; Generalized Laplace distribution; Modulated volatility; Non-Gaussian time series; Road profile; Spatial vector autoregressive model; Outlier; Robust control chart; Robust estimation;

    Abstract : In this thesis, we model stochastic processes in time and space. We focus on the processes whose covariance structure is either changing over the time span, or depends on the location in space. We develop models that appropriately describe and analyze such data behaviors in various different fields including finance, economics and engineering. READ MORE

  4. 4. Large scale renewable energy deployment - Insights offered by long-term energy models from selected case studies

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Constantinos Taliotis; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; renewable energy integration; long-term energy models; gas reserves; policy insights; cost optimization; electricity trade; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7) of Agenda 2030 calls for an increase in the use of renewable energy sources, among other targets. The percentage of fossil fuel-fired thermal generation for electricity is increasingly being reduced as renewable energy technologies (RET) advance in cost-competitiveness, and as greenhouse gas and industrial air pollutant emission limits become more stringent.
