    Author : Anna-Lena Lane; Mathias Cehlin; Thomas Olofsson; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy efficiency gap; energy performance gap; ByggaE; battery storage; barriers; drivers; Non-energy benefits NEB; questionnaire; quality assurance; PV; energieffektivisering; energieffektiva byggnader; kvalitetssäkring; byggprocessen; ByggaE; solel; batterilager; hinder; drivkrafter; enkätstudie; Hållbar stadsutveckling; Sustainable Urban Development;

    Abstract : There is a need to reduce unsustainable use of fossil fuels. Increased usage of renewable energy by combined use of photovoltaic solar panels (PV) with battery storage is one way. Another way is to increase awareness of energy usage and reduce the energy performance gap by building energy-efficient buildings. READ MORE

  2. 2. Improved Quality Assurance of Fatigue Loaded Structures - The Necessary Shift from Technology Focus towards Information Driven Weld Evaluation

    Author : Anna Öberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; lean; fatigue; NDT; information; inspection; control; assurance; six sigma; quality; weld;

    Abstract : The research has shown that the insufficient use of process information leads to unnecessary and costly safety margins in each step of production. This is, in short term, affecting the productivity of the company. Even more serious is the effect that insufficient use of process information has on product and process development in the long term. READ MORE
