  1. 1. On the Incentives to Shift to Low-Carbon Freight Transport

    Author : Fredrik Eng Larsson; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; low-carbon transport; green logistics; sustainability; operations and the environment; supply chain management; incentive alignment;

    Abstract : The transport sector accounts for approximately 20% of EU-27 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and 27% of U.S. GHG emissions. With the Kyoto Protocol, Sweden and several other nations have agreed to reduce these emissions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Governing Decarbonisation : The State and the New Politics of Climate Change

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Roger Hildingsson; [2014]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; climate politics; the environmental state; decarbonisation; low-carbon transition; energy transformation; authoritative steering; enabling; orchestrating; Sweden;

    Abstract : This dissertation examines the “new climate politics of decarbonisation” and the role of the state as a site for progressive climate action. This new politics concerns transformative social change aimed at moving society away from its current dependence on fossil carbon energy. READ MORE

  3. 3. Public Policy and the Governance of Biofuel Systems

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Lorenzo Di Lucia; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; transport; Biofuels; governance; policy; governability;

    Abstract : The dependency of transport on oil fuels is responsible for risks of energy supply security, and local, regional and global environmental problems, including the emission of greenhouse gases affecting the Earth’s climate system. Biofuels attracted considerable attention in recent years as a solution to these problems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Electrification of Road Transportation - Implications for the Electricity System

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Maria Taljegård; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; highway E39; CO2 emissions; electric vehicle; electric road systems; energy system modelling; variable renewable electricity;

    Abstract : It is incumbent upon the transport sector to reduce its CO2 emissions by replacing fossil fuels with low-carbon alternatives. Suggested strategies include electrification of the road transport sector through the use of electric vehicles (EVs) with static charging, electric road systems (ERS), and the use of electricity to produce fuels.

  5. 5. Transport systems meeting long-term climate targets A backcasting approach

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Jonas Åkerman; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES Other social sciences; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Övrig samhällsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Future transport systems consistent with long-term climate targets are examined in this thesis, using a systems perspective covering the entire transport system. Aviation is given particular attention, as expansion of this mode is difficult to reconcile with climate targets. READ MORE
