    Sammanfattning : Improved energy efficiency in industry is important for reaching the targets within the EU strategy for increased sustainability. However, energy efficiency is not always prioritised within companies, and the improvement potential remains large. This paradox called an energyefficiency gap is explained by energy-efficiency barriers. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Motivated by concerns about anthropogenic climate change, this thesis contributes to the better appreciation of mechanisms that would allow actors in China, foreign as well as Chinese, to exert a positive influence on the country's industrial technology status. China is the world's second largest emitter of greenhouse gases - the lions' share of which emanates from industrial and electricity production. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Diffusion of systemic innovations in the construction sector

    Författare :John Lindgren; Stephen Emmitt; Kristian Widén; Fawzi Halila; Jack Goulding; Högskolan i Halmstad; []
