  1. 1. Energy consumption transition : final household energy consumption in the case of Sweden 1920-2010

    Författare :Mikael Levin; Lars-Fredrik Andersson; Ann-Kristin Bergquist; Thomas Pettersson; Bengt Kriström; [2012]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; economic history; households; energy transition; energy consumption; residential; electrical appliances; Carbon dioxide; emission; ekonomisk historia; Economic History;

    Sammanfattning : This licentiate thesis examines households’ final energy consumption over the long run by measuring their final energy use and examining how structural, institutional and economic factors affected the demand for energy in the residential sector during the period 1920-2010, a period covering the transition from traditional to fossil to renewable energy carriers. I believe that wider understanding of the historical energy transition and energy consumption within the residential sector might help us gain important insights into the long-run development and the factors affecting energy consumption among the households.

  2. 2. What have residents got to do with it? : Variations in energy use and energy-related behaviours in single-family houses

    Detta är en avhandling från Byggnadsfysik LTH, Lunds Tekniska Högskola

    Författare :Carolina Hiller; [2020-09-07]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; energy use variations; energy-related behaviour; single-family houses; households; residents; multi-disciplinary; field measurements; times-use diaries; energy use over time; load curves; power peaks; energy measurements; residential houses;

    Sammanfattning : To achieve global energy goals, energy use in residential buildings must decrease. The implementation of technical measures is crucial but alone it is not sufficient; residents need to change their behaviour as well. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Participating in Energy Systems through Everyday Designs – Exploring roles for households in a more sustainable energy future

    Detta är en avhandling från Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Författare :Sara Renström; [2019]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; smart energy; sustainable energy systems; sustainable design; user-centred design; demand-side management; smart home; energy use;

    Sammanfattning : As households we participate in energy systems when, in the course of our everyday energy-reliant activities, we create a demand for energy and when we engage in energy-managing activities such as choosing an energy provider and deciding to support a specific source of energy. In this way, everyday life has an impact on the energy sector, and vice versa. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Energy Efficiency Improvements of Tumble Dryers -Technical Development, Laundry Habits and Energy Labelling

    Detta är en avhandling från Karlstad : Karlstad University

    Författare :Lena Stawreberg; Lars Nilsson; Jonas Berghel; Roger Renström; Björn Palm; [2011]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; drying; domestic; energy efficiency; textile; energy labelling standard; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Mechanical and thermal engineering Thermal energy engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Mekanisk och termisk energiteknik Termisk energiteknik; Miljö- och energisystem; Environmental and Energy Systems;

    Sammanfattning : Tumble dryers are becoming more and more common in ordinary households as a complement to the washing machine. Tumble dryers offer a fast drying cycle independent on weather conditions and require small space. They do, however, considering the large number of units use a large amount of electricity. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Decentralization in the electricity system: At the household, community and city levels

    Detta är en avhandling från Karlstad : Karlstad University

    Författare :Verena Heinisch; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Smart city; Storage systems; Power-to-heat; Optimization; Energy system modeling; Photovoltaic; Decentralization; Community energy; Prosumers;

    Sammanfattning : Recent years have seen a rise in the number of implementations of small-scale generation and storage technologies for electricity and heat at different levels in the energy system. This trend towards decentralization of the system is driven by rapid decrease in technology costs, as well as the intentions expressed by various stakeholders to contribute to a carbon-neutral energy system.
