  1. 1. Economic and grid potentials of implementing an energy storage system : A case study of the benefits of peak shaving if implementing an energy storage system

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och industriell teknik; Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och industriell teknik; Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och industriell teknik

    Author : Maria Arvidsson; Sara Ericson; Alicia Söderlind; [2020]
    Keywords : peak shaving; battery energy storage system; load factor; load profile;

    Abstract : Morgongåva is an urban centre in Sweden, with several challenges in the electrical power grid. In order to use the power grid more efficiently, this report investigates potentials of installing a battery energy storage system (BESS). READ MORE

  2. 2. Optimal design of an EV fast charging station coupled with storage in Stockholm

    University essay from KTH/Energiteknik

    Author : Luca Longo; [2017]
    Keywords : fast charging stations; electric vehicle; energy storage system; optimal design; MILP optimisation; cost-effectiveness; grid impact; Sweden.;

    Abstract : Is battery energy storage a feasible solution for lowering the operational costs of electric vehicle fast charging and reducing its impact on local grids? The thesis project aims at answering this question for the Swedish scenario. The proposed solution (fast charging station coupled with storage) is modelled in MATLAB, and its performance is tested in the framework provided by Swedish regulation and electricity tariff structure.

  3. 3. Cost Evaluation of Building Space Heating; District Heating and Heat Pumps

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för ekonomi, samhälle och teknik

    Author : Sahira Sultan; [2017]
    Keywords : Energy efficiency; energy consumption; commercial buildings; IDA ICE; peak loads; peak load shaving; heat pump; electricity pricing; district heating pricing;

    Abstract : Climate change and energy efficiency has become a matter of concern in recent times; therefore, energy efficiency of buildings has drawn major attention. According to the European Commission, EU countries must improve energy efficiency of existing buildings by retrofitting and renovating the buildings. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mitigation of district cooling peakloads in commercial buildings

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

    Author : Fanny Lindberg; [2017]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The district cooling network is designed, dimensioned and operated based on the largest power demands. If each district cooling consumer would lower their peak load, the system could serve a greater clientele. This would be beneficial both from an environmental and economic perspective as the system ought not to expand as extensively. READ MORE

  5. 5. Investigating the impact on marginal prices when using an increasing block tariff : An economic tool to reduce peak flowrates atwastewater treatment facilities

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Fakulteten för hälsa, natur- och teknikvetenskap (from 2013)

    Author : Peder Zanden Kjellen; [2016]
    Keywords : marginal cost pricing ; increasing block tariff ; IBT; wastewater;

    Abstract : In wastewater management big variations in flowrates, caused by precipitation, leads to high peak loads forcing treatment facilities to maintain large over capacity. Wastewater management is a capital-intensive industry, meaning that new investments are costly and should therefore be avoided. READ MORE
