  • Design and Optimisation of Off-grid Solar PV Systems for an Indigenous Peoples Community in the PH 

    Mayo, Marvin (Graduate Studies, Haskayne School of Business, Schulich School of Engineering, Law, Environmental Design, Sustainable Energy Development, 2018)
    Two types of off-grid solar lighting systems are investigated for a remote indigenous community in the Philippines: a Solar Home Lighting System (SHLS) for households; and the Church Complex Solar System (CCSS) serving a ...
  • Designing a Sustainable Development Project in a West African Socio-cultural Environment; Burkina Faso Case Study 

    Chineme, Atinuke (Graduate Studies, Haskayne School of Business, Schulich School of Engineering, Law, Environmental Design, Sustainable Energy Development, 2018)
    Implementing a sustainable renewable energy development project that generates local wealth is the goal of The Strongest Oak’s (TSOs) Solar Village Project. However, understanding the needs of the people in the community—Pau, ...
  • SAGD Emissions Intensity 

    Koroluk, Douglas Kenneth (Graduate Studies, Haskayne School of Business, Schulich School of Engineering, Law, Environmental Design, Sustainable Energy Development, 2017)
    Steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) is a technique used to produce significant volumes of bitumen from Alberta’s oil sands. The generation of steam from natural gas combustion generates greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. ...
  • Carbon Utilization in Building Materials 

    Pawlak, Agnieszka (Graduate Studies, Haskayne School of Business, Schulich School of Engineering, Law, Environmental Design, Sustainable Energy Development, 2018)
    Greenhouse gas emissions from anthropogenic sources have been on the rise since the industrial revolution. Scientists now believe that these gases, specifically CO2, is raising global temperatures and causing the climate ...
  • Comparison of Grid Power and Solar Power for Electric Vehicle Fast Charging 

    Lefebvre, Nancie (Graduate Studies, Haskayne School of Business, Schulich School of Engineering, Law, Environmental Design, Sustainable Energy Development, 2018)
    Range anxiety is a common complaint of electric vehicles (EVs). To help address this, a fast charging station was installed in Red Deer. In my study, I compared the scenarios of powering this station with the grid (Case ...
  • Comparative Analysis of Environmental Assessment Regulatory Frameworks for Wind Energy Development in Canada 

    Ryan Neil Hearn (Graduate Studies, Haskayne School of Business, Schulich School of Engineering, Law, Environmental Design, Sustainable Energy Development, 2018)
    This research project evaluated the effectiveness of the environmental assessment (EA) regulatory frameworks in place for wind energy developments in four selected Canadian provinces: British Columbia (BC), Nova Scotia ...
  • Perceived Risks of Energy Pipelines A Proposal for More Integrated Risk Management 

    Ho Wai Wong, Bernard (Graduate Studies, Haskayne School of Business, Schulich School of Engineering, Law, Environmental Design, Sustainable Energy Development, 2017)
    This project attempts to answer the following questions: ? Is there a risk perception gap regarding the safety of energy pipelines? ? How can the gap be closed if there is one? Research on perceived risks of pipelines is ...
  • Why We Do What We Do The Factors that Influence Energy Behaviour and How to Effect 

    Timmins, Eric (Graduate Studies, Haskayne School of Business, Schulich School of Engineering, Law, Environmental Design, Sustainable Energy Development, 2018)
    In order to address the growing issue of climate change, the Alberta Climate Leadership Plan was developed and implemented so the Province can work to minimize GHG emissions attributed to energy production. For this plan ...
  • Utilizing Wave Power as Green Energy for Remote BC Communities 

    Fischer, Eric Charles (Graduate Studies, Haskayne School of Business, Schulich School of Engineering, Law, Environmental Design, Sustainable Energy Development, 2018)
    The west coast of Canada has an abundance of potential wave energy. Currently there are many off-grid communities that do not take advantage of this renewable energy source and instead rely on diesel generators to fulfil ...
  • Sustainable Building Advancements for Alberta 

    Parassery Sadasivan, Agasthya (Graduate Studies, Haskayne School of Business, Schulich School of Engineering, Law, Environmental Design, Sustainable Energy Development, 2018)
    The Alberta electricity sector comprises electricity generated primarily from non-renewable sources like coal and natural gas which have high GHG emissions. Coal power plants and natural gas power plants account for ...
