  1. 1. LCA of Low-temperature District Heating Network Components

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för Energivetenskaper

    Author : Nils Olsson; [2021]
    Keywords : District Heating; LCA; Life Cycle Assessment; Pipes; Environment; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Following the development of new materials and the continuous technical progress made in the construction and energy industries, district heating as a concept finds itself on the brink of a generational shift. One of the pioneering projects leading the way is the creation of Brunnshög, an modern and sustainable district under construction in the north-eastern end of the city of Lund, Sweden. READ MORE

  2. 2. Developing a Parameterized Embodied Emissions Calculator for telecommunication networks equipment (PEEC)

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Maël Madon; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Temperature on the surface of the earth has already increased by 1°C above pre-industriallevels. To have a chance to keep global warming under 1,5°C, greenhouse gas emissions fromhuman activities should be halved by 2030, reaching net zero in 2050. Every business sectoris concerned. READ MORE

  3. 3. An early-stage energetic and environmental analysis for the new district of Jakobsgårdarna in Borlänge, Sweden

    University essay from Högskolan Dalarna/Energiteknik

    Author : Filippo Pellegrino; [2020]
    Keywords : Building; District; Energy; Demand; LCA;

    Abstract : To achieve the aim of low carbon cities and zero energy districts, it is important to adapt the efficient technologies while maintaining the thermal comfort and sustainable environment. The new challenge in design and building new districts lies in a sustainable and smart way to minimize energy consumption and thus carbon emission. READ MORE

  4. 4. Do feed-in tariffs promote environmental efficiency among wind farms? : a two-stage LCA + DEA efficiency case study on 75 Danish wind farms

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Economics

    Author : Gustav Berglöf; [2020]
    Keywords : DEA; efficiency; environmental efficiency; feed-in tariff; operational efficiency; renewable energy; subsidy; wind power;

    Abstract : It is generally known that wind power has an offsetting effect on emissions by crowding out fossil dependent energy sources. What has not been studied to any further extent is the variability in environmental impacts caused by wind turbine erection and manufacturing. Also, it is not known how economic incentives could affect these impacts. READ MORE
