  1. 1. Governing Decarbonisation : The State and the New Politics of Climate Change

    Författare :Roger Hildingsson; Statsvetenskapliga institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; climate politics; the environmental state; decarbonisation; low-carbon transition; energy transformation; authoritative steering; enabling; orchestrating; Sweden;

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation examines the “new climate politics of decarbonisation” and the role of the state as a site for progressive climate action. This new politics concerns transformative social change aimed at moving society away from its current dependence on fossil carbon energy. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Industrial energy efficiency improvement – the role of policy and evaluation

    Författare :Christian Stenqvist; Miljö- och energisystem; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Cement.; Pulp and paper; Decarbonisation; EU ETS; Energy management; Voluntary Agreement; Evaluation; Policy; Industrial energy efficiency;

    Sammanfattning : At EU and to a varying degree at Member State (MS) level, industrial energy efficiency improvement (EEI) is considered an attractive means for reaching political objectives of different dimensions, not least environmental. For energy-intensive manufacturing industry in particular, EEI can lead to cost reductions, improved profitability and competitiveness. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Energy and Security: Exploring Renewable and Efficient Energy Systems

    Författare :André Månsson; Miljö- och energisystem; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Climate change mitigation; Conflict; Decarbonisation; Energy security; Policy; Security of supply; Transition; Climate change mitigation; Conflict; Decarbonisation; Energy security; Policy; Security of supply; Transition;

    Sammanfattning : Mitigating climate change will affect energy systems and have consequences that reach beyond environmental policies. The studies presented in this thesis analyse how reducing emissions of greenhouse gases affect (energy) security. The focus is on strategies which improve energy efficiency or increase the share of renewable energy. LÄS MER

  4. 4. New Tides in Shipping : Studying incumbent firms in maritime energy transitions

    Författare :Ignė Stalmokaitė; Björn Hassler; Johanna Yliskylä-Peuralahti; Tommy Larsson Segerlind; René Taudal Poulsen; Södertörns högskola; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; shipping; incumbent firms; maritime energy transitions; multi-level perspective; dynamic capabilities; regime-niche interactions; decarbonisation; air-borne emissions; sustainability transitions; Environmental Studies; Miljövetenskapliga studier; Östersjö- och Östeuropaforskning; Baltic and East European studies;

    Sammanfattning : Shipping is a cornerstone of global transportation responsible for moving large volumes of traded goods. At the same time, negative environmental impacts of shipping operations have attracted growing concerns. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Green growth and rapid decarbonisation? : Assessing policy objectives, instrument choice and behavioural mechanisms

    Författare :Jonas Sonnenschein; Internationella miljöinstitutet; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Climate change; Mitigation; Policy; Carbon pricing; Green growth; Market failures; Behavioural insights;

    Sammanfattning : After the 2008/2009 global financial crisis, significant policy and scientific attention has been given to ‘green growth’, which aims at the concurrent achievement of economic growth and GHG emissions reductions via de-coupling. Despite ambitious aims, there is a lack of empirical knowledge about the effects and the potential of green growth climate mitigation policies. LÄS MER
