Heating, electricity and transportation are the three components of urban systems final energy consumption. Geothermal energy and biomass are two promising renewable energy resources that can be used for the production of heat, electricity and biofuels, thus allowing a reduction of fossil fuel consumption and of the associated greenhouse gas emissions. The goal of this paper is to assess the potential for the integration of geothermal energy combined with biomass in the energy system of a city… 

Performance assessment of biomass–geothermal configuration energy resources for cooling and power generation

The emission of greenhouse gases from fossil fuels is the main environmental impact of energy resources. Moving toward the use of renewable energy resources is the only solution to tackle these

Combining Geographical Information Systems and Optimization for Geothermal Energy Integration in Urban Systems The case study of the City of Lausanne April 12 , 2016

In the urban areas of Europe and USA, a signi cant part of the nal energy consumption corresponds to the buildings heat demand. Given the challenges related to climate change, to energy security and

Scenario modelling and optimisation of renewable energy integration for the energy transition

A large number of countries have engaged themselves in an energy transition towards more renewable energy in their energy systems. Motivations stem mainly from the need to reduce CO2 emissions, and

Biomass energy pathways in Switzerland

Attraverso questa tesi si e cercato di valutare l'impatto dell'integrazione delle tecnologie e dello stoccaggio stagionale di biomassa nel sistema energetico svizzero. Un modello che descrive il

TLDR
Energy Technology Perspectives 2012 presents detailed scenarios and strategies to 2050, an indispensible guide for decision makers on energy trends and what needs to be done to build a clean, secure and competitive energy future.

Nuclear Energy

TLDR
The roadmap for development of fourth generation fission and fusion reactors, therefore, asks for attention and research in these fields must be strengthened.
