  1. 1. Energy transition in transportation : Applying TIMES-based energy system optimisation models to sub-national levels

    Author : Jonas Forsberg; Anna Krook-Riekkola; Andrea Toffolo; Åsa Lindman; Krister Sandberg; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy system analysis; ESOM; Transportation; Climate change; Air quality; Energiteknik; Energy Engineering;

    Abstract : Transportation is embedded in the fabric of society and a key enabler of socio-economic development, but it is also a major source of carbon dioxide (CO2) and local air pollution (AP). Cities collectively account for around three quarters of total energy-related CO2 emissions, and the negative health impacts from local APs are most felt in dense urban environments. 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 : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; 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. Exploring low-carbon development pathways for Bolivia - A model-based analysis focused on the energy sector

    Author : Jenny Gabriela Peña Balderrama; Viktoria Martin; Mark I. Howells; Dilip Khatiwada; Francesco Gardumi; Pachauri Shonali; KTH; []

    Abstract : Global emissions have continued to rise steadily at levels exceeding the 1.5°C climate stabilization target. Therefore, the increase in the average global temperature and climate change will be determined by how we handle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions over the next years. READ MORE

  4. 4. Power to gas : Bridging renewable electricity to the transport sector

    Author : Farzad Mohseni; Per Alvfors; Mats Westermark; Lars Pettersson; Maria Grahn; Björn Frostell; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; transport; renewable electricity; synthetic fuels; energy; power to gas;

    Abstract : Globally, transport accounts for a significant part of the total energy utilization and is heavily dominated by fossil fuels. The main challenge is how the greenhouse gas emissions in road transport can be addressed. Moreover, the use of fossil fuels in road transport makes most countries or regions dependent on those with oil and/or gas assets. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cars in Transition - An Assessment of Future Vehicle Technologies

    Author : Max Åhman; Miljö- och energisystem; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energiforskning; Energy research; Innovation; Energy; Transport; FCEV; EV; HEV; Road transport technology; Vägtransportteknik;

    Abstract : The transport sector is facing serious challenges in meeting long-term sustainability criteria. Radical changes in the design of vehicles to attain competitive vehicles with substantially better environmental performance will probably constitute an important part in a future sustainable transport sector.
