      Pinel, Dimitri; Korpås, Magnus; Lindberg, Karen Byskov (Proceedings of the 2nd International Symposium on Energy System Optimization : ISESO 2018, Chapter; Conference object; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Zero Emission Neighborhoods (ZEN) is a concept studied in particular in the research center on ZEN in smart cities in Norway to reduce the CO2 emissions of neighborhoods. One question coming along this concept is how to ...
    • Impact of the CO2 factor of electricity and the external CO2 compensation price on zero emission neighborhoods’ energy system design 

      Pinel, Dimitri; Korpås, Magnus; Lindberg, Karen Byskov (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Existing literature on Zero Emission Neighborhoods(ZENs) and Buildings (ZEBs) only allow for reaching the zero emission target locally. This paper evaluates the impact of allowing to buy CO2 compensation to reach that ...

    • Opportunities for Local Energy Supply in Norway: A Case Study of a University Campus Site 

      Backe, Stian; Sørensen, Åse Lekang; Pinel, Dimitri; Clauß, John; Lausselet, Carine (Conference object; Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Neighbourhoods can contribute to climate change mitigation by supplying and/or facilitating renewable energy sources (RES). In this context, we evaluate opportunities related to the energy system of a Norwegian university ...
    • Sesonglagring av varme for lokale energisystem – analyse av potensialet på Furuset 

      Kauko, Hanne; Wolfgang, Ove; Pinel, Dimitri (ZEN Report;35, Research report, 2021)
      Sesonglagring for varme som et tiltak for redusert effektbehov. Bruk av overskuddsvarme sammen med fjernvarme for å dekke oppvarmingsbehov i områder er et viktig tiltak for å frigjøre kapasitet i strømnettet til ...
