  1. 1. Barriers for implementation of the Environmental Load Profile and other LCA-based tools

    Author : Karolina Brick; Björn Frostell; Mauritz Glaumann; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Built environment; Life Cycle Assessment; Environmental engineering; Miljöteknik;

    Abstract : The building sector is a vital part in the progress towards environmental sustainability, because of its high potential to decrease the environmental impact. However, the building industry remains one of the most critical industries for the adoption of environmental sustainability principles, because of several unique characteristics in terms of e.

  2. 2. Restructured district heating price models and their impact on district heating users

    Author : Jingjing Song; Björn Karlsson; Fredrik Wallin; Hailong Li; Heimo Zinko; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; district heating; restructured price model; price model survey; pricing strategy; consumption profile; consumption pattern; alternative cost; Energy- and Environmental Engineering; energi- och miljöteknik;

    Abstract : District heating (DH) is considered to be an efficient, environmentally friendly and cost-effective method for providing heat to buildings, since electricity is usually co-generated in biomass fuelled combined heat and power (CHP) plants. This gives it an important role in the mitigation of climate change. READ MORE

  3. 3. Uncertainty and correlation modeling for load flow analysis of future electricity distribution systems : Probabilistic modeling of low voltage networks with residential photovoltaic generation and electric vehicle charging

    Author : Umar Hanif Ramadhani; Joakim Widén; Joakim Munkhammar; Sarah Rönnberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Probabilistic load flow; Electricity distribution systems; Uncertainty model; Correlation model; Photovoltaics; Electric vehicle; Residential buildings; Hosting capacity; Engineering Science with specialization in Civil Engineering and Built Environment; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot byggteknik och byggd miljö;

    Abstract : The penetration of photovoltaic (PV) and electric vehicles (EVs) continues to grow and is predicted to claim a vital share of the future energy mix. It poses new challenges in the built environment, as both PV systems and EVs are widely dispersed in the electricity distribution system. READ MORE

  4. 4. Environmental assessment of the urban environment

    Author : Anna Forsberg; KTH; []
    Keywords : environmental assessment; urban district; environmental load profile; hammary sjöstad; life cycle assesssment;

    Abstract : This thesis gives a systematic description of theEnvironmental Load Profile (ELP), an environmental assessmenttool developed for the urban environment. The purpose of thework was to improve the stringency of the system boundaries andfunctional units of the tool. READ MORE

  5. 5. Ground based measurements of upper atmospheric CO and H2O using microwave radiometry

    Author : Peter Forkman; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; mesosphere; carbon monoxide; microwaves; radiometry; remote sensing; water vapour;

    Abstract : Long series of continuous measurements of middle and upper atmospheric constituents are needed to be able to understand the anthropogenic influence on the atmosphere. Phenomena like ozone depletion and the enhanced greenhouse effect are examples where the role of human activities has to be well investigated in order to make the right decisions of necessary changes in our way of life.
