    University essay from KTH/Industriell ekologi

    Author : Clemens Möller; [2017]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Sweden is striving towards a carbon neutral transportation sector by2030 which includes reductions from CO2 emissions by 70%. This thesis focusses especially on the decarbonization of road freight transportation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Optimal Energy Management for Parallel Hybrid Electric Vehicles using Dynamic Programming

    University essay from KTH/Optimeringslära och systemteori

    Author : Nikita Tagner; [2017]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In this thesis, two optimal control problems for the control of hybrid electric vehicles are formulated. The first is general formulation where both velocity and state of charge can vary. The second is a formulation where the velocity is prespecified and therefore only the state of charge can vary.

  3. 3. Life Cycle Assessment development for electrified roads : Case study for Sweden

    University essay from KTH/Byggvetenskap

    Author : Réka Nádasi; [2017]
    Keywords : LCA; SimaPro; eRoad; IPT; Conductive track; Pantograph; Sustainability;

    Abstract : The increasing role of sustainability will lead the mobility by road into a more efficient and interactive system between infrastructure, environment and vehicles. The expand of emobility based on Electric Vehicles has been restricted by numerous shortcomings such as their driving range, the battery size, the dependence on charging stations and the time required for its charging.

  4. 4. The effect of electric roads on future energy demand for transportation

    University essay from Chalmers tekniska högskola/Institutionen för energi och miljö

    Author : Jelica Darijan; [2017]
    Keywords : Electric Road Systems; ERS; Energy Demand; Transportation CO2 Emissions; ERS System Description; Impact on Electric Grid; Hourly Traffic Patterns; Power Transfer Technologies; Swedish Transportation Scenarios;

    Abstract : This thesis centers on the technology Electric road systems (ERS), which aims to solve the current range issue with electric vehicles by continually supplying vehicles in motion with energy. The aim of the thesis is to provide a thorough system description of ERS, and to investigate how a potential implementation of the technology will affect energy use and CO2 emissions in the transport sector in Sweden.

  5. 5. Steering Towards Low-Carbon Road Freight Transport Through Policies - The Case of Oslo

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Internationella miljöinstitutet

    Author : Torstein Clausen Jystad; [2017]
    Keywords : Urban freight; low-carbon technologies; electric trucks; hydrogen trucks; policy measures; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : The primary purpose of this thesis is to assess policy measures promoting the uptake and use of low-carbon technologies in urban road freight transport (URFT) in Oslo, Norway. This sector has historically received little attention compared to passenger and public transport, but contribute to significant greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, noise, and other negative health effects.
