  1. 1. Towards sustainable energy consumption : Electricity demand flexibility and household fuel choice

    Författare :Aemiro Melkamu Daniel; Lars Persson; Runar Brännlund; Rauli Svento; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Choice experiment; demand flexibility; electricity contract; fuel choice; fuel stacking; household heterogeneity; load control; pro-environmental framing; willingness-to-accept;

    Sammanfattning : Paper [I] investigates household heterogeneity in valuing electricity contract attributes that include various load controls and information sharing to induce demand flexibility. Using a stated preference choice experiment conducted with Swedish households, this paper shows that, although a large proportion of households ask for substantial compensation, some households are willing to share their electricity consumption information and require relatively lower compensation to allow load controls.

  2. 2. On Physical Relations in Driving: Judgements, Cognition and Perception

    Författare :Gabriella Eriksson; Mäntylä Timo; Ola Svenson; Christopher Patten; Wändi Bruine de Bruin; Statens väg- och transportforskningsinstitut; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Driver; Driving veh ; Cognition; Behaviour; Choice; Speed; Fuel consumption; Route itinerary ; Thesis; Road: Road user behaviour; Road: Road user behaviour; Time saving bias; fuel consumption; route choice; mean speed; speed choice; time gain; driver judgements; Psychology; psykologi;

    Sammanfattning : Drivers need to make judgements of physical relationships related to driving speed, such as mean speed, risks, travel time and fuel consumption, in order to make optimal choices of vehicle speed. This is also the case for the general public, politicians and other stakeholders who are engaged in traffic issues. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Methods to quantify and qualify truck driver performance

    Författare :Iulian Carpatorea; Slawomir Nowaczyk; Thorsteinn Rögnvaldsson; Wahde Mattias; Högskolan i Halmstad; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Driver performance; heavy-duty vehicle; fuel economy; fuel consumption; fuel prediction; truck driver;

    Sammanfattning : Fuel consumption is a major economical component of vehicles, particularly for heavy-duty vehicles. It is dependent on many factors, such as driver and environment, and control over some factors is present, e.g. route, and we can try to optimize others, e. LÄS MER

  4. 4. On direct hydrogen fuel cell vehicles : modelling and demonstration

    Författare :Kristina Haraldsson; Per Alvfors; Dougal J. Nelson; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Chemical engineering; direct hydrogen; Proton Exchange Membrane; PEM; fuel cell; fuel cell vehicle; fuel cell hybrid vehicles; on-board hydrogen storage; Kemiteknik; Chemical engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis, direct hydrogen Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell systems in vehicles are investigated through modelling, field tests and public acceptance surveys. A computer model of a 50 kW PEM fuel cell system was developed. The fuel cell system efficiency is approximately 50% between 10 and 45% of the rated power. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Drivers to and barriers against sustainable consumption : exploring the role of consumer anticipated emotions in the context of consumer adoption of alternative fuel vehicles

    Författare :Zeinab Rezvani; Johan Jansson; Maria Bengtsson; Patrick De Pelsmacker; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Consumer behavior; sustainable consumption; anticipated emotion; moral norm; attitudes; electric vehicles; alternative fuel vehicles; marketing; marknadsföring;

    Sammanfattning : With the increasing environmental problems, sustainable consumption is an important consumer behavior. Therefore, it is important to investigate further the significant drivers to and barriers against sustainable consumption, in order to increase the share of sustainable consumption and understanding of consumer behavior.
