    Abstract : The need for heating and cooling in buildings constitutes a considerable part of the total energy use in a country and reducing this need is of outmost importance in order to reach national and international goals for reducing energy use and emissions. One important way of reaching these goals is to increase the proportion of renewable energy used for heating and cooling of buildings. READ MORE

    Abstract : The building sector accounts for approximately 40% of primary energy use within the European Union, therefore reductions in the energy use intensity of this sector are critical in decreasing total energy usage. Given that the majority of energy used within the built environment is for space conditioning and domestic hot water preparation, prudence would suggest that decreasing primary energy used for these end purposes would have the biggest overall environmental impact.

  3. 3. Dynamics of large-scale fluidized bed combustion plants

    Author : Guillermo Martinez Castilla; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; operational flexibility; combined heat and power; process control; thermal power plant; biomass combustion;

    Abstract : Fluidized bed combustion (FBC) plants are widely used in energy systems across the world for the thermochemical conversion of solid fuels, and are especially suitable for low-rank fuels (a category to which renewable solid fuels belong). FBC plants are traditionally operated for base-load electricity production and for heat production, both of which processes are characterized by steady and stable operation. READ MORE
