  1. 1. Energy Analysis of the Closed Greenhouse Concept Towards a Sustainable Energy Pathway

    Author : Amir Vadiee; Viktoria Martin; Halime Paksoy; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; thermal energy storage; closed greenhouse; energy analysis; energy management; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : The closed greenhouse is an innovative concept in sustainable energy management. The closed greenhouse can be considered as a large commercial solar building. In principle, it is designed to maximize the utilization of solar energy through seasonal storage. In a fully closed greenhouse, there are not any ventilation windows. READ MORE

  2. 2. Energy Management in Large scale Solar Buildings The Closed Greenhouse Concept

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Amir Vadiee; Viktoria Martin; Philip Griffiths; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Thermal Energy Storage; Energy Saving; Thermoeconomic Assessment; Energy Management Scenario; Micro Climate Control; Solar Building; Closed Greenhouse; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : Sustainability has been at the centre of global attention for decades. One of the most challenging areas toward sustainability is the agricultural sector. Here, the commercial greenhouse is one of the most effective cultivation methods with a yield per cultivated area up to 10 times higher than for open land farming. READ MORE

  3. 3. Molecular Solar Thermal Energy Storage System: Evaluation of Different Candidates

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Zhihang Wang; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy storage and release; Vinylheptafulvene; Catalyst; Quadricyclane; Solar Energy; Thermal dynamics; Molecular switches; Azobenzene; Norbornadiene; Energy conversion; Dihydroazulene;

    Abstract : The development of solar energy can potentially meet the growing requirements for a global energy system beyond fossil fuels, however necessitates new scalable technologies for solar energy storage. One approach is the development of energy storage systems based on molecular photoswitches, so-called molecular solar thermal energy storage (MOST). READ MORE

  4. 4. Improved Self-Consumption of Photovoltaic Electricity in Buildings Storage, Curtailment and Grid Simulations

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Institutionen för teknikvetenskaper

    Author : Rasmus Luthander; Joakim Widén; Joakim Munkhammar; Ewa Wäckelgård; Nicholas Etherden; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Photovoltaics; Solar energy; Self-consumption; Grid integration; Distributed generation; Energy storage; Curtailment; Power system; Engineering Science with specialization in Solid State Physics; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot fasta tillståndets fysik;

    Abstract : The global market for photovoltaics (PV) has increased rapidly: during 2014, 44 times more was installed than in 2004, partly due to a price reduction of 60-70% during the same time period. Economic support schemes that were needed to make PV competitive on the electricity market have gradually decreased and self-consumption of PV electricity is becoming more interesting internationally from an economic perspective.

  5. 5. Exploring Devices for Molecular Solar Thermal Energy Storage Systems

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Zhihang Wang; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; energy storage; norbornadiene quadricyclane photoswitches; photochromic molecule; Solar energy; energy conversion; dihydroazulene vinylheptafulvene photoswitches;

    Abstract : The sun is considered to be one of the most abundant and renewable sources of energy. During recent last decades, technologies for solar energy capture and storage have been significantly investigated. An attractive way to store solar light, is to use photochromic molecules that can capture and store solar energy in chemical bonds. READ MORE
