  1. 1. Parametric Analysis of Thermal Comfort and Energy Efficiency in a Building Located in Different Climate Regions

    University essay from Högskolan i Gävle/Energisystem och byggnadsteknik

    Author : Nikolaos Patsatzis; [2022]
    Keywords : building; thermal comfort; simulation;

    Abstract : One of the biggest challenges of a residential building, when it is designed, is to be energy efficient and to provide simultaneously many hours of thermal comfort throughout the year. So, this was the scope of this thesis: to perform a parametric analysis of thermal comfort and energy efficiency in a house that was designed for the climate of Gotland in Sweden. READ MORE

  2. 2. Optimizing sunlight distribution in agrivoltaic systems for the Swedish climate

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Solcellsteknik

    Author : Amanda Daniels; [2022]
    Keywords : agrivoltaics; agri-PV; solar energy; PV; photovoltaics; agriculture; renewable energy; sketchup; solenergi; jordbruk; förnyelsebar energi;

    Abstract : Due to a rising land demand for the construction of large-scale PV-systems, there is increasing competition between energy and food production. A new emerging segment within the PV market called agrivoltaics is providing a contributing solution to this issue by co-using the land for both crop cultivation and PV energy. READ MORE

  3. 3. Energy renovation packages for the decarbonisation of Swedish multifamily buildings

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

    Author : Bhavik Daya; Hugh Nolan; [2022]
    Keywords : Decarbonisation; Renovation; Multi-family homes; Life Cycle Assessment; Life Cycle Costing; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Sweden and Europe aim to be being neutral by 2045 and 2050 respectively. Upgrading the existing building stock has been identified as having great potential in assisting to realise these goals. READ MORE

  4. 4. Prediction of the Impact of Increased Photovoltaics Power on the Swedish Daily Electricity Spot Price Pattern

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Tillämpad matematik; Linköpings universitet/Tekniska fakulteten

    Author : Saga Fahlén; [2022]
    Keywords : Regime Switching; Photovoltaics; Electricity Spot Price; Cannibalization Effect; Merit Order Effect;

    Abstract : As the demand for electricity increases throughout the globe while we want to reduce the use of fossil fuels, the need for renewable energy sources is bigger than ever. In countries where solar power makes up a large part of the total energy production, the overall electricity spot price level has become lower. READ MORE

  5. 5. Photophysics of the polymer acceptor PF5-Y5 in organic photovoltaics : A first principles theory based study

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap och fysik (from 2013)

    Author : Anton Almén; [2022]
    Keywords : PF5-Y5; Non-fullerene-acceptor; NFA; polymer; fundamental; optical; gap; oxidation; reduction; exciton; binding; energy; oligomer; length; PF5-Y5; Non-fullerene-acceptor; NFA; polymer; fundamentalt; optiskt; gap; oxidation; reduktion; exciton; binding; energi; oligomerlängd;

    Abstract : Non-fullerene Acceptors (NFAs) have gathered a great deal of interest for use inorganic photovoltaics (OPVs) due to recent breakthroughs in their power conversion efficiency and other advantages they offer over their Fullerene-based counterparts. In this work, a new promising non-fullerene polymer acceptor, PF5-Y5, have been studied using density functional theory and time-dependent density functional theory; and the effects that oligomer length, geometry relaxation and exchange-correlation interaction has on the exciton binding energies (the difference between optical and fundamental energy gaps) have been investigated.
