    Author : IOANNIS PAPPIS; Viktoria Martin; Will Usher; Mark Howells; Catalina Spataru; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; sustainable development; energy systems analysis; modelling tools; energy policy; energy resources management; techno-economic analysis; low-carbon technology portfolios; energy access; OSeMOSYS; Paraguay; Ethiopia; Africa; hållbar utveckling; energisystemanalys; modelleringsverktyg; energipolitik; energiresursförvaltning; teknisk-ekonomisk analys; energiteknologiportföljer; tillgång till energi; OSeMOSYS; Paraguay; Ethiopia; Africa; Energy Technology; Energiteknik;

    Abstract : Energy infrastructure and appropriate energy policies are crucial for sustainable development and to meet Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Limiting global warming potential below 1.5oC would require “rapid and far-reaching” transitions and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society. READ MORE

  2. 2. Sustainability of rural energy access in developing countries

    Author : Brijesh Mainali; Semida Silveira; Benjamin Sovacool; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy Access; Rural electrification; Rural energy; Household; Renewable energy; Off-grid; Mini-grid; Grid; Pathways; Fuel choice; Indicator; Sustainability index; Energy Technology; Energiteknik;

    Abstract : The importance of access to modern energy has been well understood by governments and donor agencies in many developing countries, and significant effort has been made in recent years to address energy access challenges. However, despite these efforts, the International Energy Agency (IEA) has predicted that the energy access problem will remain unresolved by 2030. READ MORE

  3. 3. Tailing Charges on New Paths : Ultrafast intramolecular charge transfer in chromophores

    Author : Belinda Pettersson Rimgard; Leif Hammarström; Oliver S. Wenger; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; intramolecular charge transfer; interligand electron transfer; electron transfer; proton transfer; concerted electron-proton transfer; Marcus inverted region; solvent; temperature; femtosecond spectroscopy; proton-coupled energy transfer; Chemistry with specialization in Physical Chemistry; Kemi med inriktning mot fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : By tailing charges on their paths within a molecule, one can gain fundamental knowledge of their inherent reactivity. The charges, originally residing in their lowest energy configuration, can upon light absorption move across the system, or transfer in between them. READ MORE

  4. 4. Reflector Optimization for Low Concentration Photovoltaic-Thermal Solar Collectors

    Author : Diogo Cabral; Hans Wigö; Björn O. Karlsson; Maria João Carvalho; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Photovoltaic-thermal collector; experimental assessment; collector performance assessment; optical efficiency; concentrating PVT solar collector; ray tracing; Fotovoltaisk-termisk kollektor; experimentell utvärdering; prestandautvärdering; optisk effektivitet; koncentrerande PVT-solfångare; strålgångsanalys;

    Abstract : The alarming new global warming and increasing awareness related to climate change (mainly due to the high emissions of carbon dioxide) in recent decades linked all nations into a common cause, which requires ambitious efforts to combat climate change by adapting energy systems to its effects.The knowledge gain presented in this dissertation establishes the foundations for the development of a more efficient concentrating photovoltaic-thermal (PVT) solar collector.
