    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; sustainable development; energy systems analysis; modelling tools; energy policy; energy resources management; techno-economic analysis; low-carbon technology portfolios; energy access; OSeMOSYS; Paraguay; Ethiopia; Africa; hållbar utveckling; energisystemanalys; modelleringsverktyg; energipolitik; energiresursförvaltning; teknisk-ekonomisk analys; energiteknologiportföljer; tillgång till energi; OSeMOSYS; Paraguay; Ethiopia; Africa; Energy Technology; Energiteknik;

    Abstract : Energy infrastructure and appropriate energy policies are crucial for sustainable development and to meet Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Limiting global warming potential below 1.5oC would require “rapid and far-reaching” transitions and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society. READ MORE

  2. 2. Energy planning for islands : Guiding island energy transition and decision-making

    Author : Andrew Barney; Heracles Polatidis; Stefan Ivanell; Magdalena Kuchler; Theocharis Tsoutsos; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Islands; Energy planning; Renewable Energy; Energy transition; Decarbonisation;

    Abstract : The importance and benefits of transitioning away from fossil fuel based energy systems is becoming ever clearer. The transition is especially crucial for geographic islands that typically have limited, or no, access to mainland energy networks. READ MORE

  3. 3. Energy analysis for sustainable mega-cities

    Author : Aumnad Phdungsilp; Björn Palm; Ivo Martinac; Charles Heaps; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Asian mega-cities; energy demand; metabolism of cities; energy modeling; sustainable energy; energy planning; multi-criteria decision-making; Mechanical energy engineering; Mekanisk energiteknik;

    Abstract : ABSTRACT Cities throughout Asia have experienced unprecedented economic development over the past decades. In many cases this has contributed to their rapid and uncontrolled growth, which has resulted in a multiplicity of problems, including rapid population increase, enhanced environmental pollution, collapsing traffic systems, dysfunctional waste management, and rapid increases in the consumption of energy, water and other resources.

  4. 4. Production planning of CHP plants integrated with bioethanol production and local renewables

    Author : Mahsa Daraei; Eva Thorin; Anders Avelin; Erik Dotzauer; Natasa Nord; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; CHP; Energy systems; Optimization; Polygeneration; Production planning; Renewable resources; Energy- and Environmental Engineering; energi- och miljöteknik;

    Abstract : Production planning of an energy system is dependent on parameters such as energy demand and energy conversion technologies, which are influential in making decisions on operation strategy and optimal performance of the system. In accordance with the European Union energy policy, the share of renewable resources in the energy supply is growing. READ MORE

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

    Author : Kerstin Åstrand; Miljö- och energisystem; []
    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.
