The Use of Electrokinetics to Enhance the Degradation of Organic Contaminants in Soils

The application of an electric field to contaminated soil specimens and the resulting electrokinetic phenomena have been combined with the degradative actions of bacteria to create a novel method for the remediation of contaminated land. Currently, the vast majority of remediation projects involve disposing of contaminated soil in landfill. With the introduction of, and increases in, landfill tax in the […]

Renewable Energy for Rural Electrification and Development in Mozambique

Rural areas continue to be home to the majority of the population in Africa. The importance of providing modern energy to rural areas cannot, therefore, be overemphasized. No wonder that at presently the major energy resource in Mozambique is fuel wood biomass. Total population is estimated to be 25 million and more than 80% of the energy consumed in the […]

Photovoltaic System Layout for Optimized Self-Consumption

Most of the photovoltaic (solar cell) systems in Sweden today are installed on private houses and connected to the public grid. Photovoltaic (PV) power can be consumed directly in the house, called self-consumption, or fed in to the public grid. For the house owner self-consumed PV energy often has a higher economic value than sold excess PV energy, since the […]

Feasibility Study of Heat Driven Cooling Based Thermal Energy Storage

Human needs are unlimited, but resources are limited to satisfy these needs. Because of this reason, consideration of sustainability in utilization of energy is of immense importance. As an intelligent species, mankind is interested in satisfying their needs sustainably. In this view, use of renewable energy, reduction of energy usage, and reduction/ elimination of use of fossil fuels are of […]

Walkability in Public Space: an Alley-oriented Study Towards Pedestrian-friendly

As a by-product of speedy urbanization and economic distribution, the nature of public life is changing with the process of privatization. “Public spirit” is losing somehow and there are less necessities for us walkers to use the public space. Not just carrying vehicles and sidewalks but also the main part of public space, the streets, serves as the borders as […]

Design of a High Altitude Wind Power Generation System

One of the key points to reduce the world dependence on fossil fuels and the emissions of greenhouse gases is the use of renewable energy sources. Recent studies showed that wind energy is a significant source of renewable energy which is capable to meet the global energy demands. However, such energy cannot be harvested by today’s technology, based on wind […]

Project Joyride: The Eco-friendly Single Seater Aircraft of the Future

This thesis presents an aircraft concept, The Joyride, supposed to satisfy the future demand for sustainable hobby aircrafts. The work was done through research on environmental friendly aircraft complimented by lectures on aircraft dynamics held by supervisor Arne Karlsson. A propulsion system was designed and two different future energy sources were examined. Sizing and performance analyses were executed in an […]

Solar Energy for Cooling and Refrigeration

Solar refrigeration may have applications in both developed and developing countries. Application in developing countries such as vaccine storage or large scale food preservation have been the subject of much research. In developed countries the main area of interest is air conditioning. Previous work of photo-voltaic and solar thermal systems is reviewed. Research at Warwick is underway on carbon – […]

Self-Aligning Solar Panel: Construction of a Self-Aligning Platform for Solar Panels

The purpose of this project is to create a self-aligning platform for solar panels for better utilization of the renewable solar energy source that is available. The difference between present self-aligning solutions and the proposed one is its two repositioning modes to find the optimal position which implies higher efficiency in terms of harnessing the solar energy. The movement is […]
