    Sammanfattning : The diffusion of innovations that promote sustainable use of forest resources and energy efficiency is important for reducing greenhouse gas emission and dependency on oil. In this thesis the ‘systems of innovation’ (SI)The SI analyses showed that several sources of path dependency, resulting from the establishment and growth of the concrete-based construction system over the past 100 years, hinder the expansion of a wood-based multi-storeyThe adopter-centric approach included household questionnaire surveys: one covering the whole of Sweden in 2004 involving 1500 randomly selected homeowners with any type of heating system, and another in the city of Östersund inThe expansion of district heating networks in the detached home sector, particularly those homes with resistance heaters, is often considered difficult.

  2. 2. Economic studies of Green Commercial Buildings in Sweden

    Författare :Magnus Bonde; Hans Lind; Krushna Mahapatra; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Climate change has risen to become one of our most critical global issues to resolve. Greenhouse gas emissions have been identified as one of the main causes for increased global temperature. As most energy production causes emission of greenhouse gases, a more energy efficient real estate sector could reduce the global greenhouse gas emissions. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Climate impact of the sustainable use of forest biomass in energy and material system : a life cycle perspective

    Författare :Sylvia Haus; Johan Bergh; Bishnu Chandra Poudel; Krushna Mahapatra; Göran Berndes; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; forest residues; fossil fuel substitution; forest management; radiative forcing; land use change; climate change; bioenergy; Bioenergiteknik Energi- och Miljöteknik; Bioenergy Technology; Byggteknik; Civil engineering;

    Sammanfattning : Human society releases greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere while providing housing, heat, mobility and industrial production. Man-made greenhouse gas emissions are the main causes of climate change, coming mainly from burning fossil fuels and land-use changes. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Perceptions of intensive forestry and multi-storey wood frames among Swedish actors

    Författare :Kerstin Hemström; Krushna Mahapatra; Ole Jess Olsen; Anders Lunnan; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; multi-storey wood frames; intensive forestry; actor perceptions; legitimacy; path dependence; Byggteknik; Civil engineering;

    Sammanfattning : Implementation of intensive forestry (fertilization, cultivation of non-native tree species, and clone cultivation) on part of the forested land area in Sweden and an increased construction of wood-framed multi-storey buildings can contribute to reduce the net carbon dioxide emissions of the built environment. This thesis evaluates the acceptance of and interest in intensive forestry and multi-storey wood frames among different actors, and some of the underlying reasons for their approach. LÄS MER

  5. 5. A decision-making framework for enhancing client well-being : When designing windows and blinds

    Författare :Elaheh Jalilzadehazhari; Jimmy Johansson; Krushna Mahapatra; Peter Johansson; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Value creation; Well-being; Multi-criteria decision-making; Analytical hierarchy process; Non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm-II; Technology acceptance model; Värdskap; Välbefinnandet; Multikriterieanalys vid beslutsfattning; Analytical hierarchy process; Non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm-II; Technology acceptance model; Forestry and Wood Technology; Skog och träteknik;

    Sammanfattning : The current state of window and blind design moves beyond evaluating a single function, such as energy consumption, to include a human perspective in architectural design approach to create value. A current thought among architects and design professionals is that the highest value outcomes can be obtained when any architectural design contributes to enhanced well-being. LÄS MER
