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

    University dissertation from Lund Institute of Technology

    Author : Kerstin Åstrand; [2006]
    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.

    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; business model; market based instruments; cleantech; stakeholder inclusion; sensemaking; narratives; district heating; prgmatism; communicative theory of the firm;

    Abstract : The business model is a new analytical concept in the field of strategy research that is frequently used when trying to explain the creation and capture of value by firms. This compilation thesis consists of three papers that examine different aspects of the formation of business models and one paper that examines the business model concept per se. READ MORE

  3. 3. Essays in Environmental Policy Evaluation

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Haoran He; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]

    Abstract : Paper 1: The Effects of an Environmental Policy on Consumers – Lessons from the Chinese Plastic Bag Regulation Abstract: In an attempt to reduce plastic bag litter, China introduced a nationwide regulation requiring all retailers to charge for plastic shopping bags on June 1, 2008. By using the policy implementation as a natural experiment and conducting two surveys before and after the implementation, we investigate the impact of the regulation on people’s plastic shopping bag use.

  4. 4. Demand Response Polices for the Implementation of Smart Grids

    University dissertation from Delft, NL : Delft University of Technology

    Author : Elta Koliou; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; demand response; smart grids; dynamic pricing; balancing; policy; tariffs; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : With the grasp of a smart grid in sight, discussions have shifted the focus of system security measures away from generation capacity; apart from modifying the supply side, demand may also be exploited to keep the system in balance. Specifically, Demand Response (DR) is the concept of consumer load modification as a result of price signaling, generation adequacy, or state of grid reliability. READ MORE

  5. 5. Managing Service Levels in Grid Computing Systems Quota Policy and Computational Market Approaches

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH
