  1. 1. 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 : 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

  2. 2. Is energy efficiency the forgotten key to successful energy policy? : Investigating the Swedish case

    Author : Maria Xylia; Semida Silveira; Jenny Palm; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; energy efficiency; energy policy; Sweden; policy research; mixed-methods research; Cost-benefit analysis; energy intensive industries; public transport; Energy Technology; Energiteknik;

    Abstract : Sweden aims to become one of the first fossil-free welfare countries in the world. In 2009, specific energy and climate policy targets were announced for 2020, which exceed the ambition of respective EU targets in some areas. READ MORE

  3. 3. Towards Increased Energy Efficiency in Swedish Industry : Barriers, Driving Forces & Policies

    Author : Patrik Thollander; Mats Söderström; Magnus Karlsson; Jenny Palm; Paolo Bertoldi; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Industrial energy efficiency; barriers; driving forces; investment decision support; energy policies; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Industrial energy efficiency is one of the most important means of reducing the threat of increased global warming. A higheruse of electricity than their European competitors, together with increased energy costs due to increasing energy prices in Swedish industry have negative impacts on results and competitiveness.

  4. 4. Energy Policy Instruments Perspectives on their Choice, Combination and Evaluation

    Author : Kerstin Åstrand; Miljö- och energisystem; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; energy systems; policy instrument choice; socio-technical systems; policy instrument combination; Energiforskning; Energy research; Samhällsvetenskaper; Social sciences; Sweden.; evaluation; Environmental technology; pollution control; Miljöteknik; wind energy policy; green certificate trading scheme; market creation; wind power; Public policy instruments; wind turbine development; kontroll av utsläpp; renewable energy; energy policy;

    Abstract : Abstract The thesis aims at providing a better understanding of public policy instruments used in policy-making within the energy sector, particularly regarding their role in the change towards an increased use of renewable energy sources for generation of electricity. The research was guided by an underlying assumption that a markedly higher proportion of the energy generated from renewable sources can be considerably enhanced by use of policy instruments that support the development and the market creation of new, renewable energy technologies.
