  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. 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.

    Author : Alva Happe; Wassim Seifeddine; [2022]
    Keywords : portfolio optimization; risk management; monte carlo; value at risk; life settlements; longevity risk; cash reserve; closed-end fund;

    Abstract : Hoarding a too large cash reserve is often unfavourable due to lost investment opportunities. Similarly, an insufficient cash reserve can be detrimental, as one might fail to meet payment obligations. Finding the optimal balance is nothing that is done in the blink of an eye, particularly when the underlying variable is stochastic, e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. WIND POWER MANAGEMENT:RISK ANALYSIS FOR WIND POWER PROJECTS IN NORTH SWEDISH WHITE-TAILED SEA EAGLE HABITATS

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Björn Larsson; [2022]
    Keywords : Carrying capacity; density-dependent effect; displacement effect; land use;

    Abstract : By investigating the scope of future wind turbine projects in north Swedish coastal regions and Lapland inland, identification of especially sensitive areas and the effect of wind farm location for the white- tailed sea eagles (WSE) Haliaeetus albicilla at these sites were evaluated. Since the 1980s the WSE the population growth has been stable and intensified in the last two decades, the upgoing trend is evident especially at coastal areas of the Bothnian Sea and Lapland inland, these regions are also considered suitable for wind farm projects.

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Fredrik Tannoury; [2022]
    Keywords : Technology Readiness Level; Hydrogen production; LCA; Sweden;

    Abstract : Humanity faces challenge to satisfy its growing energy demand while simultaneously transitioning into a sustainable society. Reducing carbon emissions from the industrial and transportation sector are met with difficulties. To help decarbonisation efforts EU members like Sweden have recognised the use of hydrogen as a viable solution. READ MORE
