Master Thesis – Model for generating the climate impact of prefabricated power distribution systems

Master Thesis – Model for generating the climate impact of prefabricated power distribution systems

The challenge

The transition to green energy is needed to combat climate change. As a designer and manufacturer of prefabricated systems for power distribution Holtab is committed to building products that enables this transition.

The anticipation of project developers in the green energy sector is that the materials and manufacturing of the sourced systems for power distribution is climate neutral. To meet these expectations the climate impact of these products needs to be reduced. A part of this challenge is to develop a model for measuring their carbon footprint.

The goal of this thesis project is to investigate methods of accurately and efficiently measuring the carbon footprint of prefabricated systems for power distribution.

The work will include:

  • Breaking down products into smaller components, materials and operations
  • Researching methods of calculating the carbon footprint of the ingoing components
  • Build and test a model for summarizing the carbon footprint of ingoing components into one figure for the whole system
