  1. 16. Shaping the Climate Action trajectory within the Fashion Industry : a case study of a Small Medium Sized Enterprise

    Master-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Naturresurser och hållbar utveckling

    Författare :Marta Karen Kristjónsdóttir; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Sustainable Development; Paris Agreement; Climate Change; Climate Action Plans; Apparel industry; Value Chain Analysis VCA ; Life Cycle Assessment LCA ; Sustainable Global Value Chain SGVC ; Decarbonisation pathway; Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action; UNFCCC; Pre-competitive; Collaboration; Traceability; Transparency; Multi-Stakeholder Agreements;

    Sammanfattning : The apparel and footwear industry’s contribution to global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is one of the fifth largest per industry, equal to that of livestock, after electricity and heat, oil and gas, agriculture, and transportation (Ellen MacArthur Foundation, 2017). For industry-wide emissions reduction, investing in renewable energy and energy efficiency programs across highest impacting life cycle phases offer the most effective solution. LÄS MER

  2. 17. Techno-Economic Analysis of Solar Photovoltaic and Heat Pump Systems for a North Macedonian Hospital

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM); KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Författare :Francisco Beltran; Lesley Fisher; [2019]
    Nyckelord :ground source heat pump; air source heat pump; ice thermal energy storage.;

    Sammanfattning : The International Energy Agency’s Global Status Report 2017 estimates that existing buildings must undergo deep energy renovations, which reduce the energy intensity of buildings by 50% - 70% in order to achieve the “Beyond 2°C” scenario [1]. Many buildings in Bitola, The Republic of North Macedonia, will need considerable upgrades to meet these goals. LÄS MER

  3. 18. LCA of Microgrid System: a Case Study at ‘North-five Islands’ of Changshan Archipelago, China

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Författare :Jiang Yuning; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Microgrid system; Life cycle Assessment LCA ; Climate change impact; Greenhouse gas emissions GHG ; China;

    Sammanfattning : Microgrid can provide stable, clean, and sustainable electricity supply for remote places since it can operate on renewable energy sources and work isolated from the utility grid. This thesis evaluates the life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of the microgrid system which is located at the ‘North-five Islands’ of Changshan archipelago in China. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Heavy-duty trucks accounts for 25% CO2 emissions in Sweden and there is approximately 12.6 million heavy-duty vehicles in the EU with different types of fuel and utilization areas. LÄS MER

  5. 20. Towards a citizen-driven low-carbon energy transition: Exploring the potential for collective investment schemes in community renewable energy in Europe to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/LUCSUS

    Författare :Cristian Pons-Seres; [2019]
    Nyckelord :community renewable energy; energy transition; collective investment; greenhouse gas emissions; sustainability science; Social Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The European Union’s (EU) ‘market-oriented’ approach to renewable energy development risks undermining the ability of individual citizens to meaningfully contribute to, and benefit from, a decentralised, localised, and decarbonised energy system. In spite of the EU’s ambition to involve local communities for co-driving a low-carbon energy transition, there is no comprehensive analysis uncovering the extent to which citizen participation can meaningfully contribute to decarbonise Europe’s energy system within an increasingly limited timeframe demanding drastic cuts in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at an accelerated pace.
