  1. 1. Improved energy efficiency in industrial small and medium-sized enterprises : Regional energy efficiency network policy programs

    Författare :Ida Johansson; Patrik Thollander; Nawzad Mardan; Inger-Lise Svensson; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Regional energy efficiency policy; Energy efficiency networks; Industrial SMEs; Barriers; Drivers; Energy management; Regional energipolicy; energieffektiviseringsnätverk; industriella SMF; hinder; drivkrafter; energiledning; inget Strategiskt forskningsområde SFO ; no Strategic Research Area SFO ;

    Sammanfattning : Despite large potential for improved energy efficiency in industrial small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), the full potential is not realized due to barriers to energy efficiency. Two primary ways to realize the potential are to deploy energy management practices and conduct energy audits. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Energy efficiency in heritage buildings : Conservation approaches and their impact on energy efficiency measures

    Författare :Tomas Örn; Agatino Rizzo; Sofia Lidelöw; Andrea Luciani; Elena Lucchi; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : The impeding climate change challenge urges for a reduction of energy use in the built environment. Buildings account for nearly 40% of the total energy use and about 35% of the greenhouse gas emissions in Europe. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Energy efficiency in Swedish SMEs : Exploring barriers, knowledge creation and the role of municipal energy efficiency programs

    Författare :Fredrik Backman; Jenny Palm; Patrik Thollander; Max Åhman; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Policy programs; energy efficiency networks; Community of Practice COPs ; barriers; knowledge creation; Policyprogram; energieffektiviseringsnätverk; Community of Practice COP ; barriärer; skapande av kunskap;

    Sammanfattning : The overall aim of this thesis is to analyze how municipalities support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in their work to improve their energy efficiency. The purpose of this study is to increase the current understanding of how the methods and tools used by municipalities to assist SMEs in improving their energy efficiency influence the end results in terms of achieved energy efficiency, and how knowledge related to energy efficiency is created within SMEs.

  4. 4. The Non-Energy Benefits of Industrial Energy Efficiency : Investments and Measures

    Författare :Therese Nehler; Patrik Thollander; Elin Svensson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Industrial energy efficiency; energy efficiency measures; energy efficiency investments; non-energy benefits; compressed air;

    Sammanfattning : Improved industrial energy efficiency is viewed as an important means in the reduction of CO2 emissions and climate change mitigation. Various energy efficiency measures for improving energy efficiency exists, but even evaluated as cost-effective, there seems to be a difference between the energy efficiency measures that theoretically could be undertaken and which measures that actually are realised.

  5. 5. Energy Efficiency in Shopping Malls : Some Aspects Based on a Case Study

    Författare :Sofia Stensson; Jan-Olof Dalenbäck; Per Fahlén; Monica Axell; Jeffrey Spitler; Chalmers University of Technology; []

    Sammanfattning : The building sector accounts for approximately 40 percent of our energy use. To reach existing environmental targets energy use will have to be reduced in all building types. At the European level, the main legislative instrument for improving the energy efficiency of the building stock is the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD). LÄS MER
