    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Asian mega-cities; energy demand; metabolism of cities; energy modeling; sustainable energy; energy planning; multi-criteria decision-making; Mechanical energy engineering; Mekanisk energiteknik;

    Sammanfattning : ABSTRACT Cities throughout Asia have experienced unprecedented economic development over the past decades. In many cases this has contributed to their rapid and uncontrolled growth, which has resulted in a multiplicity of problems, including rapid population increase, enhanced environmental pollution, collapsing traffic systems, dysfunctional waste management, and rapid increases in the consumption of energy, water and other resources.

  3. 3. The social organization of energy efficiency in shipping: a practice-based study

    Författare :Martin Viktorelius; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Activity theory; Energy efficiency; Energy consumption; Knowing-in-practice; Shipping; Practice theory; Practice based studies; Energy management; Work;

    Sammanfattning : The central research question explored in this study is how energy efficiency is organized onboard large merchant ships. The dominant techno-economical approach within energy research and policy, in general, and shipping research and policy, in particular, is reviewed and criticized as being too limited for understanding the challenges and opportunities related to the organization and management of energy efficiency in shipping companies.

  4. 4. Balancing Building Conservation with Energy Conservation - Towards differentiated energy renovation strategies in historic building stocks

    Författare :Petra Eriksson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANITIES; HUMANITIES; Historic buildings; Historic building stocks; Heritage value; Energy efficiency; Energy renovation; Decision support processes;

    Sammanfattning : Balancing building conservation with energy conservation is challenging. The overall aim of this thesis is to bridge the perceived conflict of reaching climate and energy goals on the one hand and the goals of a sustainable management of historic building stocks on the other hand.

    Sammanfattning : The building industry is responsible for 35% of final energy use and 38% of CO2 emissions at a global level. The European Union aims to reduce CO2 emissions in the building industry by up to 90% by the year 2050. Therefore, it is important to consider the environmental impacts buildings have. LÄS MER
