  1. 1. Adaptation of buildings for climate change : A literature review

    University essay from Högskolan i Gävle/Avdelningen för byggnadsteknik, energisystem och miljövetenskap

    Author : Cheng Cheng; [2021]
    Keywords : Climate change; Extreme weather; Building energy efficiency; Passive houses;

    Abstract : In September 2020, Northeast China suffered three unprecedented typhoons in half a month, and there was freezing rain in early November, all of which led to the large-scale urban power failure. The occurrence of these phenomena makes people directly see climate change and its impact on the living environment of human beings. READ MORE

  2. 2. Rooftop plant factories: effects on energy use for heating, cooling and electric lighting

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Energi och ByggnadsDesign; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö

    Author : Yizhi Zhang; [2021]
    Keywords : Urban and peri-urban agriculture and forestry UPAF ; urban farming UF ; rooftop greenhouse RTG ; lighting; daylighting; energy conservation; roof; greenhouse; food; cities.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Within the next thirty years, two thirds of the human population will live in a city. This growing urban population requires a major shift in the way we produce and distribute food, since industrial agriculture practices contribute to climate change, biodiversity losses, pollution of waterways, soil degradation, etc. READ MORE

  3. 3. Smartphone-based shade analysis using hemispherical fisheye imaging for local solar energy potential

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö

    Author : Jonas Andersson; [2020]
    Keywords : solar power; shading analysis; smartphone-based; fisheye lens; image segmentation; watershed transformation; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In the emerging trend of smartphone use and a rising demand for solar photovoltaic (PV) power worldwide, this master thesis project explores the potential to utilize commercially available fisheye lens optics in combination with a smartphone camera to capture and analyze local shading conditions. Photogrammetric studies involving hemispherical sky photos have since long been used for environmental studies and solar energy applications, although mostly with high-end costly equipment.

  4. 4. Energy savings in multi-family building after using an innovative retrofitting package

    University essay from Högskolan Dalarna/Energiteknik

    Author : Kosmas Kasolas; [2020]
    Keywords : Energy savings; retrofitting; energy efficient measures; thermal insulation; multi family building;

    Abstract : The building sector is one of the sectors that consume the most energy in Sweden. In order to deal with this problem Swedish government aims to reduce the energy consumption in the building sector 50% by 2050. Another ambitious goal set by the Swedish government is zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040. READ MORE

  5. 5. SOLAR ROOF - Roof potential investigation for installing PV system

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Energi och ByggnadsDesign; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö

    Author : Forough Hosseini; Saba Salehi; [2020]
    Keywords : Solar roof; solar potential; PV system; Ventilation system; Photovoltaics; million-program buildings; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : By increasing the amount of CO2 emissions to the atmosphere because of using fossil fuel and the limitation of non-renewable energy sources, solar photovoltaics technology has been growing steadily and is thought to play an important role in the realm of future energies. The objective of this thesis is to investigate the potential of the rooftops for installing PV system on a small scale of 30 multifamily houses in Gothenburg divided into four categories of age, location, roof type, and ventilation system.
