  1. 1. Off-Grid Solar Energy and Its Impacts on Rural Livelihoods : A Case Study on Tanzania

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för samhällsstudier (SS); Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för samhällsstudier (SS)

    Author : Nike Dahlqvist; Samuel Larsson; [2019]
    Keywords : ff-grid energy; rural electrification; sustainable Development; Livelihood; Solar Energy; Tanzania.;

    Abstract : Energy poverty and lack of access to electricity is a global problem which is recognised in the sustainable development goal 7. Today 1.2 billion people live without access to electricity and most of them are situated in Sub-Saharan Africa where biomass still constitutes the main source of energy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Production optimization for district heating : Short-term planning of district heating grid in Gävle, Sweden

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

    Author : Nicolas Lindgren; Karl Brogren; [2019]
    Keywords : Short-term planning; Optimization; District heating; Linear programming; Mixed integer non-linear programming; Branch and bound; Heat storage; MATLAB; TOMLAB;

    Abstract : Energy systems with a high portion of renewable energy from wind and solar power can suffer from fluctuations in production due to weak winds or cloudy weather, which may affect the electricity price. When producing heat and power in a combined heat and power plant, an additional heat storage tank can be used to store the heat surplus which is obtained when the power production is high, and the heat demand is low.

    University essay from Högskolan Dalarna/Energiteknik; Högskolan Dalarna/Energiteknik

    Author : Ali Manhal; Tammam M. Ali; [2019]
    Keywords : Solar tent; PV system; refugee camp; PV monitoring system; and flexible PV modules;

    Abstract : Natural disasters and conflicts in many different parts of the world force thousands of people to get displaced from their homes and live in refugee camps temporarily or permanently. For refugee families, lack of energy access has great impact on their lives. READ MORE

  4. 4. Artificial photosynthesis - 4-Aminobenzoic acids effect on charge transfer in a photo catalytic system

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Materialteori

    Author : Simon Moberg; [2019]
    Keywords : artificial photosynthesis; aminobenzoic acid; charge transfer; plasmon; induced; plasmon induced; nanostructure; nanostructures; solar energy; nano particles; nano particle; artificiell fotosyntes; aminobensoesyra; laddningsöverföring; plasmon; inducerad; plasmoninducerad; nanostruktur; nanostrukturer; solenergi; nanopartiklar; nanopartikel;

    Abstract : Artificial photosynthesis is used to harvest solar energy and store it in the form of chemical bonds. The system of interest in this study does this by splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen gas through a plasmon assisted process, collective oscillations from free electron gas. READ MORE

  5. 5. Electricity Production from Concentrated Solar Power and PV System in Ethiopia

    University essay from Högskolan i Halmstad/Akademin för ekonomi, teknik och naturvetenskap

    Author : Misrak A. Tefera; [2019]
    Keywords : Eecticity production; CSP; PV System;

    Abstract : Ethiopia has been facing problems regarding power generation, distribution, balancingbetween demand and supply and access to modern energy service. About 92.4% of energysupply is from biomass (mostly in traditional) 5.7% oil which is not friendly with theenvironment and about 1. READ MORE
