  1. 1. Re-thinking green roof design : The prospect of a carbon sink structure investigated through a life cycle cost-benefit analysis

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Internationella miljöinstitutet

    Author : Aziliz Le Rouzo; [2020]
    Keywords : Carbon Footprint; Green Roof Design; Carbon Sink; Cost-Effectiveness; Life cycle Cost-Benefit Analysis; Green Roofs; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Green Roofs (GRs) have been used worldwide as a solution for greening cities, while providing useful services to society such as storm water management, improved air quality, energy savings, and increased biodiversity, to name a few. However, the environmental impact of their structure has been understudied, and more importantly, the carbon cost related to the use of materials that have a high carbon footprint has received little to no attention.

  3. 3. Energy Renovation Towards Net-Zero Energy Buildings using Photovoltaic Systems and Batteries in Residential Buildings

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Energi och ByggnadsDesign; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö

    Author : Albin Lithvall; Jovan Panić; [2020]
    Keywords : NZEB; Photovoltaics; Energy storage; Passive house; Energy efficiency; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : As the future energy goals of the building industry involve reducing the energy intensity in buildings as well as increasing the share of renewable energy sources, a suitable approach would be energy renovating existing buildings and further utilizing renewable energy production technology to reach Net-Zero Energy Building (NZEB) standard. This study is therefore investigating the economic feasibility of energy renovating buildings built during the Swedish Million program towards NZEB. READ MORE

  4. 4. Artrikedom på nya höjder : ett gestaltningsförslag på en takpark utifrån Grahns parkegenskap artrikedom
