  1. 1. Hydrologic modelling of the Zackenberg river basin : an applied study using the Soil and Water Assessment Tool

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Malin Ahlbäck; [2018]
    Keywords : Greenland; SWAT; High Arctic; Distributed Hydrologic Modelling; GIS; surface Water; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Since the 1980s, the Arctic has experienced an amplified warming of more than twice the rate of the global-mean, leading to large-scale changes in the Arctic hydrologic system, ultimately having cascading feedbacks on the global climate. However, few of today’s distributed models manage to capture the complex processes in Arctic hydrology, and therefore, the aim of this thesis was to evaluate the usage of the distributed Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model, to see whether it could capture the different surface water paths and processes characterizing the Arctic water cycle.

    Keywords : Industrial Design Engineering; Product Design; Electric Boats; Charging; Quick Charger; Normal Charger; Needfinding; User Experience; Ergonomic; Creativity; Civilingenjör Teknisk Design; Produktdesign; Elbåtar; Laddning; Snabbladdare; Normalladdare; Behovsidentifiering; Användarupplevelse; Ergonomi; Kreativitet;

    Abstract : The current concerns about global warming are increasing the demands for electric vehicles (Ou- chi, Bando, Kodani, Hirata & Mubin, 2012).With the increasing demands, electric boats have now come into focus (Sierzchula, 2014). However, there is yet to be developed standards for charging of electric boats. READ MORE

  3. 3. Energy follow-up of the technology building in New Karolinska Solna Hospital (NKS)

    University essay from KTH/Tillämpad termodynamik och kylteknik

    Author : Asal Mohsenchian; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Vikten av energieffektivisering och hållbarhet i samhället har blivit allt mer uppenbar under de senaste åren på grund av ökade CO2-utsläpp, energipriser och den globala uppvärmningen. Europeiska unionen har som mål att minska utsläppen av växthusgaser med 20% och öka andelen förnybar energi till 20 % av den totala energianvändningen fram till 2020. READ MORE

  4. 4. Performance evaluation of a rooftop solar photovoltaic power plant in the Gävle Arenaby (Gävle, Sweden): Installation testing

    University essay from Högskolan i Gävle/Energisystem

    Author : David Compadre Senar; [2018]
    Keywords : Installation test; module temperature; angle of incidence; solar irradiation; PV system.;

    Abstract : The current energy situation is taking a turn towards renewable energies, due to the new pacts to curb global warming. These agreements, together with governmental aid, are facilitating an escalation in the production and improvement of new energy systems and the price decrease due to a larger-scale production.

  5. 5. Environmental and health impacts when replacing kerosene lamps with solar lanterns : A study on global warming potential and household air pollution

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskaper; Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskaper

    Author : Erik Stenemo; Emma Olsson; [2018]
    Keywords : solar lanterns; kerosene lamps; LCA; global warming potential; black carbon;

    Abstract : In regions with low energy access kerosene lamps are commonly used, and these emit carbon dioxide (CO2) as well as household air pollutants (HAP). This bachelor thesis examines the possible reduction of carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2eq) emissions and HAP from kerosene lamps by replacing them with off-grid solar powered lanterns. READ MORE
