1. Energy transition in transportation : Applying TIMES-based energy system optimisation models to sub-national levels
Sammanfattning : Transportation is embedded in the fabric of society and a key enabler of socio-economic development, but it is also a major source of carbon dioxide (CO2) and local air pollution (AP). Cities collectively account for around three quarters of total energy-related CO2 emissions, and the negative health impacts from local APs are most felt in dense urban environments. LÄS MER
2. Towards sustainable urban transportation : Test, demonstration and development of fuel cell and hybrid-electric buses
Sammanfattning : Several aspects make today’s transport system non-sustainable: • Production, transport and combustion of fossil fuels lead to global and local environmental problems. • Oil dependency in the transport sector may lead to economical and political instability. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Urbanization has caused a historical transformation at a global scale, and humanity is moving towards a fully connected society where cities will concentrate population, infrastructure and economic activity. A key element in the cities’ infrastructure is the transportation system, as it facilitates the mobility of people and goods. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Internal combustion engines have been an important technological field for more than a century. It has had an important impact on society through improved transportation and industrial applications. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis is based on the idea of applying a logistics approach to fuel supply systems. The complete supply chain from energy raw material to end use in the vehicle is analysed while keeping track of energy conversion efficiency, exergy consumption and emissions to air. LÄS MER
