  1. 1. Optimisation of Run of River Production Forecasting Using Aiolos Forecast Studio

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Amer Al-Qes; [2020]
    Keywords : Run of river hydropower plants; power production forecasting; Aiolos forecast studio; model accuracy assessment analysis and power market.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Hydropower is simply the largest source of renewable energy in the Nordic countries, where It compose around 90% of power production in Iceland, 70% in Norway, 40% in Sweden and 20% in Finland. Mountainous terrain and abundance in the surface water is a significant contributing factor in hydropower production. READ MORE

  2. 2. Investments in Academic Renewable Electricity Generation Technology Spin-Offs : A Qualitative Study on High Capital Limitations for Underexplored Renewable Energy Sources

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Industriell teknik

    Author : Yann Braune; [2020]
    Keywords : Renewable Energy Generation Technologies REGT ; Underexplored Renewable Energy Sources; University Spin-Off; Funding Ecosystem; Funding Gap; Degree of Utilization; Cross-Disciplin;

    Abstract : Due to an intensified climate change discourse, renewable energy technologies find higher attention within the energy system and increasingly compete with traditional energy conversion systems. Electricity is progressively being generated through renewable electricity generation technologies (REGT) which harness naturally existing energy fluxes (wind, tide, heat, sun) and convert it to electricity.

  3. 3. Sustainable environmental vs. sustainable social development : Tendencies of carbon colonialism and green authoritarianism when implementing renewable energy strategies on indigenous peoples’ territories

    University essay from Högskolan Dalarna/Religionsvetenskap

    Author : Jonas Bergman; [2020]
    Keywords : Indigenous peoples; renewable energy; ILO 169; UNDRIP; Sami people; wind power;

    Abstract : The intention with this essay is to illustrate the conflicts that might occur when states implement renewable energy strategies on lands that have traditionally belonged to indigenous peoples. To do so I have analysed case studies from Sweden as well as Latin America regarding renewable energy projects in areas that could be claimed to belong to indigenous groups and compared the conclusions from these studies to what the existing legal framework on the topic of the rights of indigenous peoples dictates.

  4. 4. The Value of Value Factors : Time-dependent Development of Value Factors on the Swedish Electricity Market

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och industriell teknik; Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och industriell teknik; Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och industriell teknik; Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och industriell teknik

    Author : Sara Särnblad; Nora Ekström; Katarina Vanky; Agnes Bråve; [2020]
    Keywords : Value factor; Electricity market; Spot price; Market value; Electricity mix; Sweden;

    Abstract : This bachelor thesis investigates the development of value factors on the Swedish electricity market and how the development can be explained. Value factor is a parameter that indicates how well an energy source’s market price corresponds to the average spot price for the electricity mix. READ MORE

  5. 5. Load following in a Swedish nuclear power plant

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Jacob Bjurenfalk; [2020]
    Keywords : chemical engineering; nuclear power; load following; process engineering; electricity production; APROS; Simulations; swedish power gird; kemiteknik; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The energy system in Sweden is currently under a great transformation, where the part of weather dependent energy sources, so called intermittent sources, like solar and wind power will get greater share in the total production of electricity while the production from stable energy sources like nuclear power is decreasing. For a long time, the nuclear power have been operating at baseload and the hydropower as flexible, though, due to the change in the current power system, nuclear power plants may need to transit to flexible operation and apply load following.
