  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. Test and Calibration of CUBES: a CubeSat X-ray Detector

    University essay from KTH/Fysik

    Author : Caroline Holmberg; [2022]
    Keywords : Applied Physics; Astroparticle Physics; Tillämpad fysik; Astropartikelfysik;

    Abstract : CUBES is an X-ray detector that will be placed aboard the KTH 3U CubeSat mission, MIST. Its purpose is to detect high energy X-rays as well as to test various components in a space environment. Two CUBES will be placed on the satellite. Each CUBES consists of a printed circuit board (PCB) with three multi pixel photon counters (MPPCs). READ MORE

  3. 3. Life Cycle Assessment of Borehole Thermal Energy Storage

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Saga Karlsson; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Borehole thermal energy storage (BTES) is a technology used to store energy between seasons. It could therefore be a solution to the seasonal mismatch between the use and production of (renewable) energy, which can be used to increase energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
