  1. 1. An early-stage energetic and environmental analysis for the new district of Jakobsgårdarna in Borlänge, Sweden

    University essay from Högskolan Dalarna/Energiteknik

    Author : Filippo Pellegrino; [2020]
    Keywords : Building; District; Energy; Demand; LCA;

    Abstract : To achieve the aim of low carbon cities and zero energy districts, it is important to adapt the efficient technologies while maintaining the thermal comfort and sustainable environment. The new challenge in design and building new districts lies in a sustainable and smart way to minimize energy consumption and thus carbon emission. READ MORE

  2. 2. Performance assessment in district cooling networks using distributed cold storages : A case study

    University essay from KTH/Energiteknik

    Author : Zinar Bilek; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : District cooling is a technology that has been gaining traction lately due to increased demand from the commercial and industrial sectors, especially in dense urban areas such as Stockholm. A literature study found that customers such as hospitals, offices, malls and data centres all depend on both comfort cooling and process cooling. READ MORE

  5. 5. Demand Side FLexibility and Bidding Strategies for Flexible Loads in Air-Conditioned Buildings

    University essay from KTH/Energiteknik

    Author : Christian Utama; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Demand-side flexibility (DSF) has been touted as a possible solution to thechallenges in power system operation arising as a result of the increasing intermittent renewables penetration and the emergence of electric vehicles (EVs). In Singapore, where around 24 to 60% of electricity demand in buildings couldbe attributed to heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) purposes, air-conditioned building present a potentially major flexibility resource which could be used to provide DSF and help accommodate these challenges.
