  1. 1. Towards Increased Energy Efficiency in Swedish Industry : Barriers, Driving Forces & Policies

    Författare :Patrik Thollander; Mats Söderström; Magnus Karlsson; Jenny Palm; Paolo Bertoldi; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Industrial energy efficiency; barriers; driving forces; investment decision support; energy policies; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Industrial energy efficiency is one of the most important means of reducing the threat of increased global warming. A higheruse of electricity than their European competitors, together with increased energy costs due to increasing energy prices in Swedish industry have negative impacts on results and competitiveness.

    Sammanfattning : IPCC reported in its climate change report 2013 that the atmospheric concentrations of the greenhouse gases (GHG) carbon dioxide (CO2), methane, and nitrous oxide now have reached the highest levels in the past 800,000 years. CO2 concentration has increased by 40% since pre-industrial times and the primary source is fossil fuel combustion. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Energy efficiency and ventilation in Swedish industries barriers, simulation and control strategy

    Författare :Patrik Rohdin; Bahram Moshfegh; Hazim Awbi; Magnus Karlsson; Alfred Moser; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Industrial energy efficiency; Industrial ventilation; Barriers; Driving forces. CFD; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : The energy issue is presently in focus worldwide. This is not only due to increasing environmental concern regarding energy related emissions, but also due to the trend of increasing energy prices. Energy usage in the industrial sector in Sweden today represents about one third of the national energy use. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Barriers, drivers and context environment of technological innovation : An analysis of the biogas industry in Russia
