  1. 1. Energy Efficient Vehicle Policy: Lessons Learnt An analysis of the effects of incentive policies on the demand, usage and pricing of energy efficient vehicles

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Kungliga Tekniska högskolan

    Författare :Jake Whitehead; KTH.; KTH.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy Efficient Vehicle; Incentives; Policy; Demand; Usage; Pricing; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Sammanfattning : Encouraging the uptake of energy efficient vehicles (EEVs) is an aspiration of critical importance in a day and age in which we are confronted with the increasingly dire consequences of human behaviour on our planet, and on the planet for generations to come. The transport sector is one of the highest contributors of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, whilst pollution from this sector is responsible for a large proportion of human deaths each and every year.

  2. 2. Explaining Trends in Car Use

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Författare :Anne Bastian; KTH.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; car use; peak car; VMT; VKT; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Sammanfattning : Many western countries have seen a plateau and subsequent decline in car travel during the early 21st century. What has generated particular interest and debate is the claim that the development cannot only be explained by changes in traditional explanatory factors such as GDP, fuel prices and land-use.

  3. 3. Aspects of Modeling Fraud Prevention of Online Financial Services

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Författare :Gorton Dan; KTH.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Online banking; fraud; incident response; metrics; incident response tree IRT ; value at risk VaR ; simulation; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Sammanfattning : Banking and online financial services are part of our critical infrastructure. As such, they comprise an Achilles heel in society and need to be protected accordingly. The last ten years have seen a steady shift from traditional show-off hacking towards cybercrime with great economic consequences for society. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Evaluation and Modelling of Short Haul Intermodal Transport Systems

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Författare :Behzad Kordnejad; KTH.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Sammanfattning : Conventional intermodal rail freight transport systems have proved themselves competitive and able to offer cost-leadership on long distances and in endpoint relations between two nodes. Several studies within intermodal transports have made contributions in finding the minimum distance, the “break-even” distance that an intermodal door-to-door shipment can compete with unimodal road.
