  1. 1. The Impacts of Urban Heat Islands on Northwestern European Cities: Characterising the heat island intensity based on land use data

    University essay from Luleå/Department of Civil, Environmental and Natural Resources Engineering

    Author : Twan Rovers; [2016]
    Keywords : climate-sensitive urban design; urban heat island UHI ; heat mitigation; local climate zone LCZ ; Northwestern Europe;

    Abstract : Many urban and suburban areas experience higher temperatures than their outlying rural surroundings. This difference in temperature is what constitutes an Urban Heat Island (UHI). UHIs result from man-made modifications of the natural environment. READ MORE

  5. 5. EVALUATION OF AN AQUIFER THERMAL ENERGY STORAGE (ATES) SYSTEM FOR THE CITY HOSPITAL IN KARLSRUHE (GERMANY)

    University essay from

    Author : Matías Barrios Rivero; [2015]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The objective of the present study is to evaluate the economic, technical and environmental feasibility of an Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage (ATES) system combined with groundwater heat pumps (GWHP) for providing space cooling and heating for the future surgery building at the city hospital in Karlsruhe. The base case system used as reference for comparison is a system similar to the one currently supplying space cooling from a GWHP system and space heating by the local district-heating network.
