  • The diffusion of innovation and perceived risk for the adoption of alternative energy vehicles

    Many researchers have studied alternative energy issues from a policy or industry viewpoint, but few have explored the consumer's beliefs and opinions. Since most applications of alternative energy are being developed for the consumer market, the consumer's acceptance and adoption of these new fuels and alternative energy vehicles are key factors to consider. This research studies the consumer's ...

  • The impact of national environmental policy on the global success of next-generation automobiles

    In this paper, we identify the most crucial factors of the potential world market success of alternative car designs: fuel cell vehicles (FCVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), battery electric vehicles (BEVs), and conventional fuel efficient vehicles (FEVs). We assess which vehicle concept is favoured under which regulation regime. We suggest that the global success of a certain technology ...

  • Choosing a hybrid car using a hierarchical decision model

    This paper describes and analyses an operational decision model of the customer decision process in selecting a new hybrid automobile. Three types of extreme customer profiles are introduced which represent disparate customers of hybrid cars. These profiles provide rankings, or priorities, which are used to establish a baseline of possible user entry. A hierarchical decision model (HDM) ...

  • Coordination of exergy analysis and the MIND method - applied to a pulp and board mill

    The MIND (Method for analysis of INDustrial energy systems) method has been developed for cost optimisation of industrial energy systems, mainly with regard to quantities of energy. Exergy analysis reveals losses, efficiencies and possible improvements. These methods can be combined in order to improve industrial energy systems. In this paper, a Swedish pulp and board mill is used as a case ...

  • Evaluating advanced automotive energy technologies: a multivariate mobility contribution metric

    Mobility technology is beginning to shift from gasoline-fuelled, internal combustion engines to a variety of alternate fuels and powertrains, including hybrid and fuel cell vehicles. The benefits and/or limitations of many of these technologies are not well characterised by a simple fuel economy metric: mobility is a complex system requiring a multivariate systems measure, especially ...
