  1. 1. Design of high performance buildings : Vulnerability of buildings to climate change from an energy perspective

    University essay from KTH/Hållbara byggnader

    Author : Robin Gobert; [2022]
    Keywords : Climate Change; High Performance Buildings; Dynamic Thermal Simulations; Thermal Regulation; Environmental Regulation; Cooling Needs; Heating Needs; Representative Data; Big Data; Clustering;

    Abstract : The challenge of climate change is twofold: to mitigate (prevent) the causes of climate change and to prepare (adapt) to the inevitable effects and consequences. Building and construction are key sectors for decarbonisation (mitigation). READ MORE

  2. 2. The Factory of the Future: An analysis on buildings, HVAC, and heat recovery systems in order to reduce energy consumption

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för energivetenskaper

    Author : Christina Naumburg; [2022]
    Keywords : HVAC; energy; consumption; electricity; industry; heat recovery; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The industrial sector in Sweden accounted for 38 percent of the country’s total energy consumption in 2019. As the world’s focus has shifted drastically on energy consumption, the industry sector’s has as well due to energy initiatives and government-driven regulations. READ MORE

  3. 3. Development of a Simulation Model for Combined PVT and Ground Source Heat Pump Systems : A TRNSYS Model Created for Commercial Use

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

    Author : HANNA OLAUSSON; EMMA WERNIUS; [2021]
    Keywords : Electrify everything; Solar assisted heat pump; Solar Energy; TRNSYS; Elektrifiera allt; solassisterad värmepump; Solenergi; TRNSYS;

    Abstract : The Swedish government has set a target of a 100% renewable electricity system by 2040. To reach this goal, many actions have to be undertaken. Electrification of buildings is one action to be undertaken as the residential sector accounts for a large share of greenhouse gas emissions, where the most energy efficient method is to use heat pumps.

  4. 4. Design of a Polygeneration system in Filipinas ETCR, Colombia

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

    Author : Germán Ropero Pérez; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This project has addressed the design of a cost-effective Polygeneration system that guarantees a continuous, equitable and environmentally friendly energy supply for the rural settlement of Filipinas ETCR, (in Spanish, Espacios Territoriales de Capacitación y Reincorporación) Colombia, which is currently not achieved, due to a system that relies on the national electricity grid (with numerous outages) and on LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) and wood to meet the thermal demand, mainly for cooking. For this purpose, in addition to the current energy supply situation, the energy demand according to type (electricity and heat) and sector (residential, commercial and agro-livestock) is characterized.
