    Abstract : With the Paris agreement calling to limit global warming to 2°C below pre-industrial levels, with further efforts to ensure it stays below 1.5°C, the Finnish government passed the Lakihiilen energiakäytön kieltämisestä (416/2019), i.e. READ MORE

  2. 2. Diffusion of floating offshore wind technology (FOWT) in Sweden

    University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Institutionen för industriell ekonomi

    Author : Jarno Hassinen; Robin Brink; [2022]
    Keywords : Renewable energy; diffusion; competitiveness; floating offshore wind technology; FOWT;

    Abstract : Background: This research work takes a strong sustainability approach with the focus on renewable energy technology (RET) diffusion to meet the multifold and complex challenges with CO2 emission targets and geopolitical energy challenges. Global warming, sustainability issues and significant energy crises, suggests that RET is seen as one of the most important solutions to deal with these challenges. READ MORE

  3. 3. EVALUATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL AND TECHNICAL PERFORMANCE OF ALTERNATE FIBRES FOR SHOTCRETE IN TUNNELS

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Shilpa Anand; [2022]
    Keywords : Shotcrete; Life cycle assessment; Environmental Product Declaration; Global warming potential; steel; basalt and synthetic fibres; flexural strength; energy absorption.;

    Abstract : Tunnels in hard and jointed rock are normally excavated in an arch shape to enable the rock mass to support its weight. Since the beginning of the 1980's, fibre reinforced shotcrete (FRS) in combination with rock bolts have been the dominating support method for hard rock tunnels. READ MORE

    Keywords : Carbon emissions; Decoupling; Environmental Curve; Economic Growth;

    Abstract : Climate change is one of the highest priority problems which needs to be addressed. The Paris Agreement focuses on zero-carbon solutions and to stop global warming while the United Nations highlights 17 sustainability goals. READ MORE

  5. 5. Electric propulsion of satellites as an alternative for implementation of a sunshade system

    University essay from KTH/Fysik

    Author : Maheen Arfan; Isabelle Bonnier; [2022]
    Keywords : Geoengineering; Sunshade system; Electric propulsion; Orbital mechanics; Sub-lagrange;

    Abstract : As an alternative solution to global warming, this thesis explores the possibility of aspace-based geoengineering scheme that may prove worthwhile to implement in parallel toother environmental efforts that help mitigate impact of climate change. One suggestionof a geoengineering solution is deploying a large number of sunshades in the vicinity ofthe first Lagrange point of the Sun-Earth system, and this prospective sunshade projectwould serve to shield Earth from incident solar radiation.
