  1. 1. Entering renewable electricity production : An actor perspective

    Author : Ingrid Mignon; Anna Bergek; Gunnel Sundberg; Harlad Rohracher; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Renewable electricity production; new entrants; energy transition; energy policy; innovation; entrepreneurship; institutional theory; innovation-­adoption; implementation;

    Abstract : Although energy transition is considered one of the main challenges of our time, little attention has traditionally been paid to the actors participating in this transition, such as the producers of renewable electricity. Previous energy policy literature and policy- makers have assumed that these producers are incumbent actors of the current energy system, that is to say, large utilities producing both renewable and fossil-fueled electricity.

  2. 2. Power to the people : electricity demand and household behavior

    Author : Mattias Vesterberg; Runar Brännlund; Chandra Kiran Krishnamurthy; Maximilian Auffhammer; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; electricity demand; real-time pricing; demand flexibility; elasticity; appliance-level data; end-use; media; contract choice; de-regulated market; household behavior; intermittent electricity production; efficiency; imperfect information;

    Abstract : Paper [I] Using a unique and highly detailed data set on energy consumption at the appliance-level for 200 Swedish households, seemingly unrelated regression (SUR)-based end-use specific load curves are estimated. The estimated load curves are then used to explore possible restrictions on load shifting (e.g. READ MORE

  3. 3. Essays on Energy and Climate Policy – Green Certificates, Emissions Trading and Electricity Prices

    Author : Anna Widerberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Attitudes; Carbon Dioxide; Carbon Intensity; Climate Change; Electricity; Electricity Prices; Emissions Trading; Emission Allowances; Environment; Fairness; GARCH models; Lyapunov Exponents; Market Structure; Personal Carbon Allowances; Public Opinion; Reconstructed Dynamics; Stability; Tradable Energy Quotas; Tradable Green Certificates; Volatility;

    Abstract : Paper I: An Electricity Trading System with Tradable Green Certificates and CO₂-emission Allowances Combinations of various policy instruments to deal with the threat of climate change are used throughout the world. The aim of this article is to investigate an electricity market with two different policy instruments, Tradable Green Certificates (TGCs) and CO₂ emission allowances (an Emission Trading System, ETS).

  4. 4. Large-Scale Graphene Production for Environmentally Friendly and Low-Cost Energy Storage : Production, Coating, and Applications

    Author : Nicklas Blomquist; Håkan Olin; Renyun Zhang; Christina Dahlström; Patrik Johansson; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Graphene; Energy storage; Supercapacitors; EDLC;

    Abstract : There is great demand for energy-efficient, environmentally sustainable, and cost-effective electrical energy storage devices. One important aspect of this demand is the need for automotive electrification to achieve more energy-efficient transportation at a reasonable cost, thus supporting a fossil-fuel free society.
