  1. 1. Experimental investigation of ventilation performance of corner placed stratum ventilation in an office environment

    University essay from Högskolan i Gävle/Energisystem och byggnadsteknik

    Author : Gasper Choonya; [2019]
    Keywords : Stratum ventilation; local air change index; air change efficiency; ventilation effectiveness; draught rate; percentage dissatisfied; heat removal effectiveness;

    Abstract : Energy use in buildings account for about one third of the total global energy supply and contributes as much as 30% of the anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. It is estimated that energy use in buildings will increase to 67% by 2030. READ MORE

  3. 3. Pale, male and stale : To what extent does achieving the UK’s carbon budgets rely on greater diversity within the energy sector?

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Tema Genus

    Author : Alexandra Jones; [2019]
    Keywords : renewable energy; fossil fuels; decarbonisation; energy sector; extraction; climate change; Environmental Humanities; ecofeminism; Queer theory; workplace diversity; intersectionality.;

    Abstract : With increasing recognition that reducing carbon emissions from energy in the UK will make a significant contribution to the mitigation of anthropogenic climate change, and with carbon budgets forged following the Climate Change Act 2005 looking unlikely to be met, it is clear that sectoral changes are required to catalyse the decarbonisation process. Alongside the need for this industry to be at the forefront of decarbonisation, the energy sector needs to diversify and employ more women, Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME), LGBT and disabled people, as well as those from different social classes and varied educational backgrounds.

Among these causes, anthropogenic emissions contributed most, such as coal-fired emissions and vehicle emissions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Catch-Up with Me if You Can: An empirical analysis of convergence of carbon emission intensity in the EU power sector

    Keywords : carbon emission intensity; EU power sector; stochastic convergence; beta-convergence; environmental economics;

    Abstract : The anthropogenic impact on climate change is discernible and the power sector is known to be one of the main contributors of greenhouse gas emissions. This thesis takes a cross-country sectoral approach with the overall objective of analyzing convergence of carbon emission intensity in electricity generation across the power sectors in the EU.
