  1. 1. Energy Analysis of the Closed Greenhouse Concept : Towards a Sustainable Energy Pathway

    Author : Amir Vadiee; Viktoria Martin; Halime Paksoy; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; thermal energy storage; closed greenhouse; energy analysis; energy management; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : The closed greenhouse is an innovative concept in sustainable energy management. The closed greenhouse can be considered as a large commercial solar building. In principle, it is designed to maximize the utilization of solar energy through seasonal storage. In a fully closed greenhouse, there are not any ventilation windows. READ MORE

  2. 2. Management control for sustainability : Activities and procedures for energy management in industrial companies

    Abstract : The thesis takes its point of departure in the important role of the industrial sector in mitigating climate change through a reduced energy use. There is a lack of understanding for how energy management should be organised and implemented in industrial companies. READ MORE

  3. 3. Energy analysis for sustainable mega-cities

    Author : Aumnad Phdungsilp; Björn Palm; Ivo Martinac; Charles Heaps; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; 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. On Sustainability in Local Energy Planning

    Author : Farhad Derakhshan; Energihushållning; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy Indicators; Sustainable Development; Energy Systems; Energy Planning;

    Abstract : Energy is among the main driving forces needed for sustainable development. Provision of energy services, from the supply side to transmission/distribution and use, must include management, and good management requires tools. Energy planning is a tool for managing the community energy system through assessing and balancing supply and demand. READ MORE

  5. 5. Prediction of Energy Use of a Swedish Secondary School Building : Building Energy Simulation, Validation, Occupancy Behaviour and Potential Energy-Efficiency Measures

    Author : Jessika Steen Englund; Bahram Moshfegh; Mathias Cehlin; Jan Akander; Tomas Persson; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; building energy simulation; school building; field measurements; energy use; heat power demand; validation; occupancy behaviour; airing; energy-efficiency measures; byggnadssimulering; skolbyggnad; fältmätningar; energianvändning; värmeeffektbehov; validering; brukarbeteende; vädring; energieffektiviseringsåtgärder; Hållbar stadsutveckling; Sustainable Urban Development;

    Abstract : Residential and public buildings account for about 40% of the annual energy use in Europe. Many buildings are in urgent need of renovation, and reductions in energy demand in the built environment are of high importance in both Europe and Sweden. Building energy simulation (BES) tools are often used to predict building performance. READ MORE
