  1. 1. The possibility of machine learning algorithms to explain long-run economic growth

    C-uppsats, Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för nationalekonomi

    Författare :Gabriel Ehrnst Grundin; Daniel Helldén; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Economic Growth; Machine Learning; ; Empirical Econometrics;

    Sammanfattning : The empirical investigation of economic growth has been one of the most researched topics in economics. Most recently, machine learning algorithms that can handle nonlinearities, discontinuities and other issues inherent with traditional linear approaches have been proposed to be able to more accurately describe the empirical determinants of economic growth.

  2. 2. FAULT DETECTION FOR SMALL-SCALE PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER INSTALLATIONS : A Case Study of a Residential Solar Power System

    Master-uppsats, Högskolan Dalarna/Mikrodataanalys

    Författare :Maxim Brüls; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Random Forest; Regression; Solar Power; Photovoltaic Module; Fault Detection; Renewable Energy; Econometrics; Supervised Learning;

    Sammanfattning : Fault detection for residential photovoltaic power systems is an often-ignored problem. This thesis introduces a novel method for detecting power losses due to faults in solar panel performance. Five years of data from a residential system in Dalarna, Sweden, was applied on a random forest regression to estimate power production. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Carbon-Intensive Path Dependencies in the Electric Grid: Assessing the Effect of Coal-Fired Power Plant Closures on Future Renewable Energy Adoption

    Magister-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Ekonomisk-historiska institutionen

    Författare :Cole Anderson Steinberg; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Energy Transition; Coal Closures; Renewable Energy; Carbon Lock-In; Fuel-Switching; Business and Economics;

    Sammanfattning : Increasingly severe consequences of fossil fuel consumption have proliferated the exigency of an energy transition to zero and low-carbon electricity generation technology. Despite its relative reduction in market share in the United States, coal continues to play a role in future energy scenarios. This study examines the contiguous U.S. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The removal of trade sanctions’ impact on South African wine export : a gravity model that estimates what happened with South Africa’s wine export when apartheid ended.

    Kandidat-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Economics

    Författare :Julia Linderson; [2020]
    Nyckelord :apartheid; econometrics; economics; embargo; exort; gravity model; sanctions; trade; trade agreement;

    Sammanfattning : This paper investigates how the removal of the South Africa trade embargo in 1994 affected its wine exports. The goal is to determine the significance of the sanctions and trade agreements for this export. Specifically, sanctions and certain trade agreements are examined between the years 1990 to 2010.

  5. 5. The elasticity of demand for phosphorus fertilisers in Swedish agriculture : a panel data study of price effects on phosphorus compounds in chemical fertilisers

    Kandidat-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Economics

    Författare :Jakob Nygårds; Ellika Svensson Svenungsson; [2020]
    Nyckelord :agriculture; econometrics; fertilisers; import tariff; panel data; price elasticity; phosphorus; tax;

    Sammanfattning : Chemical fertilisers are common in the Swedish agriculture and even though there is a decreasing trend of using chemical fertilisers, they still have major negative impact on the environment (Swedish Board of Agriculture, 2019). This study focuses on the price elasticity of demand for phosphorus fertilisers in Swedish agriculture and how price changes of phosphorus fertilisers affect farmers. LÄS MER
