  1. 1. A Framework for Sustainable Strategic Energy Company Investment Analysis and Decision-support: Towards the Operationalisation of Sustainable Energy Systems

    University dissertation from Pepukaye Bardouille, Environmental- and Energy Systems Studies, Gerdagatan 13, 223 62 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Pepukaye Bardouille; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Miljöteknik; pollution control; Environmental technology; energy company strategic investment analysis; environmental decision-making; sustainable energy systems; strategic decision-support; kontroll av utsläpp; Energy research; Energiforskning;

    Abstract : In addition to being a key criterion of the sustainable development proviso, for business, the integration of social- and ecological considerations into decision-making is of growing importance for minimising future environmentally-related risk and associated economic costs, as well as gaining a share in growing markets favouring products and companies focusing upon social responsibility and ecological protection. The study focuses upon addressing the research question: how can socio-ecological considerations be incorporated into energy companies' formal strategic investment analysis and decision-making processes, so as to facilitate the development of sustainable energy systems?.

  2. 2. Smart Energy Grids – Utilization of Space Heating Flexibility

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Johan Kensby; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; demand side management; heat pump; thermal energy storage; exhaust air heat pump; thermal storage in buildings; heat price control; smart; District heating; heat source shifting; demand response;

    Abstract : Buildings are the largest energy-using sector in the world. Since the generation of energy is highly associated with greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to climate change, there is a large focus on reducing energy use in buildings. READ MORE

  3. 3. Inducing large-scale diffusion of innovation An integrated actor- and system-level approach

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Ingrid Mignon; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Innovation; large-scale diffusion; adopters; actor; system; drivers; challenges; motives; strategies; policies; renewable electricity; technology; intermediaries;

    Abstract : In order for the innovation process to be successful, not only do innovations need to be developed and reached the market, but, once they are available for users, they have to spread on a large scale. In the innovation literature, a complete explanation is lacking of why some innovations reach a phase of large-scale diffusion faster than others, including both actor- and system-level components.

    Abstract : Energy consumption and its management have been clearly identified as a challenge in computing and communication system design, where energy economy is obviously of paramount importance for battery powered devices. This thesis addresses the energy efficiency of mobile communication at the user end in the context of cellular networks. READ MORE

  5. 5. Assessing the sustainability of bioethanol production in different development contexts: A systems approach

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Dilip Khatiwada; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; bioenergy and biofuel; bioethanol industry; development trend; sustainability assessment; climate change mitigation; energy security; life cycle assessment; systems optimisation; bioenergi och biobränsle; bioetanolindustri; utvecklingstrender; hållbarhetsbedömning; motverka klimatförändringar; energisäkerhet; livscykelanalys; systemoptimering; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : The continuous depletion of fossil fuel reserves, the global agenda on climate change and threats to energy security have led to increased global interest in the exploration, production and utilisation of bioenergy and biofuels. Access to modern bioenergy carriers derived from the efficient conversion of locally available biomass resources is indispensable for economic growth, rural development and sustainable development in developing countries.
