Master thesis students wanted!

  1. Material use in a low carbon energy system

We are looking for 1-2 Master thesis students to conduct a thesis project aimed at assessing how the processes of transforming the Swedish and European energy system will affect the patterns of production and consumption of materials.

Rapid and large scale deployment of renewable and low carbon technologies on both the supply side (e.g. solar panels, wind turbines, transmission) and the demand side (e.g. electric vehicles, battery storage) of the energy system will have impact on the use of natural resources, both energy resources and material resources. This project will explore and analyse how, given different scenarios for the development of a EU renewable energy system, scaling up and sustaining a low-carbon technological system will effects material use.

2. Concrete change: analysis of strategies to reduce the climate impact of concrete use

We are looking for 1-2 Master thesis students to conduct a thesis project aimed at assessing how cement and concrete is used today and how the climate impact can be reduced through more efficient material use and more efficient design.
