  1. 1. Modeling rural Vietnamese households' use of cooking fuels

    Detta är en avhandling från Chalmers University of Technology

    Författare :Niklas Vahlne; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fuel ladder; fuel switching; rural households; developing; Vietnam; cooking; improved stoves;

    Sammanfattning : Abstract A majority of rural households in the developing world still use solid biomass fuels for cooking, which has severe negative health effects, may be expensive, time consuming, and contributes to global warming. Options for interventions aimed at improving the energy situation for households include the dissemination of improved cook stoves (ICSs), increase of households possibilities to switch to more modern fuels, for example through subsidies for LPG, as well as increase of the rate of electrification.

  2. 2. Energy consumption transition : final household energy consumption in the case of Sweden 1920-2010

    Detta är en avhandling från Chalmers University of Technology

    Författare :Mikael Levin; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; economic history; households; energy transition; energy consumption; residential; electrical appliances; Carbon dioxide; emission; Economic History; ekonomisk historia;

    Sammanfattning : This licentiate thesis examines households’ final energy consumption over the long run by measuring their final energy use and examining how structural, institutional and economic factors affected the demand for energy in the residential sector during the period 1920-2010, a period covering the transition from traditional to fossil to renewable energy carriers. I believe that wider understanding of the historical energy transition and energy consumption within the residential sector might help us gain important insights into the long-run development and the factors affecting energy consumption among the households.

  3. 3. Energy Efficiency Improvements of Tumble Dryers -Technical Development, Laundry Habits and Energy Labelling

    Detta är en avhandling från Karlstad : Karlstad University

    Författare :Lena Stawreberg; Karlstads universitet.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; drying; domestic; energy efficiency; textile; energy labelling standard; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Mechanical and thermal engineering Thermal energy engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Mekanisk och termisk energiteknik Termisk energiteknik; Miljö- och energisystem; Environmental and Energy Systems;

    Sammanfattning : Tumble dryers are becoming more and more common in ordinary households as a complement to the washing machine. Tumble dryers offer a fast drying cycle independent on weather conditions and require small space. They do, however, considering the large number of units use a large amount of electricity. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The role of Swedish single-family dwellings in the electricity system - The importance and impacts of solar photovoltaics, demand response, and energy storage

    Detta är en avhandling från Chalmers University of Technology

    Författare :Emil Nyholm; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Demand side management; Electricity system models; Electric space heating; Solar photovoltaics; Distributed generation; Demand response; Single-family dwellings; Optimization; Batteries;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates the role Swedish single-family dwellings can play in the electricity system. Both through becoming electricity producers through the use of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, and the possibilities of demand response (DR) and energy storage in combination with this, and through the DR of electric space heating in the dwellings.

  5. 5. Visualisera energi i hushåll Avdomesticeringen av sociotekniska system och individ- respektive artefaktbunden energianvändning

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Författare :Erica Löfström; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Energy use; energy visualization; households; energy behaviour; Power Aware Cord; Anneberg; pilot project; heating system; time-diaries; Time-PAcTS; Energianvändning; energivisualisering; hushåll; energibeteende; Power Aware Cord; Anneberg; pilotprojekt; värmesystem; tidsdagbok; Time-PAcTS; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Technology and social change; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Teknik och social förändring;

    Sammanfattning : Ett centralt problem i strävan efter att minska energianvändningen i hushåll genom beteendeförändringar är att energi till stora delar är en osynlig produkt. Avhandlingen strävar efter att utveckla kunskap som kan bidra till mer hållbar utveckling genom att analysera tre företeelser som på ett konkret sätt synliggör energi och energirelaterat beteende: ett lokalt värmesystem, en s.
