  1. 1. Challenges for end-use energy efficiency

    Author : Frances Sprei; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : technological development; Swedish building sector; downsizing; Energy efficiency; fuel consumption; market barriers;

    Abstract : The scientific community has reached close to a consensus that anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases are causing a change of the global climate. These emissions arise foremost from the burning of fossil fuels, and secondly from land use change. READ MORE

  2. 2. Enabling industrial energy benchmarking : Process-level energy end-use, key performance indicators, and efficiency potential

    Author : Elias Andersson; Patrik Thollander; Magnus Karlsson; Martin Patel; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy efficiency; energy efficiency potential; energy benchmarking; manufacturing industry; key performance indicators; industrial energy end-use;

    Abstract : One of the greatest challenges of our time is global climate change. A key strategy for mitigating the emission of greenhouse gases is the improvement of energy efficiency. Manufacturing industry stands for a large share of global energy end-use but has yet to achieve its full energy efficiency potential. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Implementation of energy supply and end use technologies in built environment

  5. 5. A System Perspective on Energy End-Use Measures in a District Heated Region : Renovation of Buildings and Hydronic Pavement Systems

    Author : Stefan Blomqvist; Louise Ödlund; Patrik Rohdin; Jan Akander; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : A district heating and cooling (DHC) system can be a viable piece of the puzzle in the efforts of reducing the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Especially if the DHC system include combined heat and power (CHP) plants which enable electricity production from renewable resources. READ MORE
