  1. 1. The Factory of the Future: An analysis on buildings, HVAC, and heat recovery systems in order to reduce energy consumption

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för energivetenskaper

    Author : Christina Naumburg; [2022]
    Keywords : HVAC; energy; consumption; electricity; industry; heat recovery; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The industrial sector in Sweden accounted for 38 percent of the country’s total energy consumption in 2019. As the world’s focus has shifted drastically on energy consumption, the industry sector’s has as well due to energy initiatives and government-driven regulations. READ MORE

  2. 2. MICRO-CLIMATE CHARACTERIZATION OF COMFORT MATERIALS : A CLIMATE ANALYSIS OF HIGH RESILIENCE FOAM IN MICRO-CLIMATE CONDITIONS

    University essay from Mälardalens universitet/Framtidens energi

    Author : Ullas Siddachary; [2022]
    Keywords : High resilience; high density; foam; operational energy; comfort; materials; temperature; heat index; vapor pressure; humidity; PCR coating;

    Abstract : Currently, it is widely recognised that the operational energy consumption of most building types currently outweighs their embodied energy by some margin. However, as we make dramatic increases in energy efficiency the embodied energy of the materials and components that we use will become proportionally larger and may account for a substantial proportion of the energy associated with buildings in the future.

  3. 3. Pre-renovation considerations for a Swedish single-family house : Analysis of energy saving potential

    University essay from Högskolan i Gävle/Energisystem och byggnadsteknik

    Author : Meghdeepa Choudhury; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : According to United Nations 7th sustainable development goal, increased use of fossil fuels in energy accounts for around 60 percent of total global greenhouse gas emissions and in order to debacle this crisis of global warming, the European Union aimed to reduce energy use by 32.5 % within 2030 by improving energy efficiency.

  4. 4. Development of a Simulation Model for Combined PVT and Ground Source Heat Pump Systems : A TRNSYS Model Created for Commercial Use

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : HANNA OLAUSSON; EMMA WERNIUS; [2021]
    Keywords : Electrify everything; Solar assisted heat pump; Solar Energy; TRNSYS; Elektrifiera allt; solassisterad värmepump; Solenergi; TRNSYS;

    Abstract : The Swedish government has set a target of a 100% renewable electricity system by 2040. To reach this goal, many actions have to be undertaken. Electrification of buildings is one action to be undertaken as the residential sector accounts for a large share of greenhouse gas emissions, where the most energy efficient method is to use heat pumps.

  5. 5. Modeling the Heat Flow Dynamics of a Houses Using Stochastic Differential Equations

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Pablo Sabino Mayo Nardone; [2021]
    Keywords : Mathematical Model; thermal model; heat dynamics modelling; differential equations; space-state equation; grey-box modelling;

    Abstract : This research aims to explore new ways of assessing energy performance within housing units. The mainobjective of this work is to propose a heat dynamics model based on monitoring data, to contribute towardsan energy-efficient transition in the building sector. READ MORE
