Assessment of Greenhouse Gas Emission Mitigation Potential and Abatement Costs of Alternative Technology Options for Oil SandsDownload
In the last several decades societies have gained an increasing level of awareness and scientific understanding of the impact of anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions on average global temperatures and the negative results of those temperatures increasing. Many governments, including...
Anodized metal-oxide nanostructures are of interest in a wide variety of applications, such as in solar energy harvesting, sensing, antifouling, and biomedical coatings. Anodization is a solution-processable method and presents a viable route to large-scale manufacturing of ordered nanostructures...
Observations of Snow and Ice Formation on Solar Photovoltaic Panels and an Enhanced Method of Modelling Snow Melting from Solar Photovoltaic PanelsDownload
One of the fundamental limitations of solar photovoltaic (PV) generating systems in cold regions is snow accumulations blocking irradiance from reaching the PV cells. Snow accumulations on PV panels result in both reduced electricity generation and increased uncertainty in electricity generation...
What Determines Municipal Renewable Energy Development? Insights From a Mixed-Methods Study of Municipalities in AlbertaDownload
This thesis contributes to energy social sciences, examining the potential of municipal renewable energy projects and employing a novel theoretical framework intersecting the theory of planned behaviour and transition theory. I site this work in Alberta, a province with a carbon intensive energy...
