Comparison of Low-temperature District Heating Concepts in a Long-Term Energy System Perspective

Rasmus Lund, Dorte Skaarup Østergaard, Xiaochen Yang & Brian Vad Mathiesen
District heating systems are important components in an energy efficient heat supply. With increasing amounts of renewable energy, the foundation for district heating is changing and the approach to its planning will have to change. Reduced temperatures of district heating are proposed as a solution to adapt it to future renewable energy systems. This study compares three alternative concepts for district heating temperature level: Low temperature (55/25 oC), Ultra-low temperature with electric boosting (45/25 oC),...

Flexible use of electricity in heat-only district heating plants

Erik Trømborg, Monica Havskjold, Torjus Folsland Bolkesjø, Jon Gustav Kirkerud & Åsa Grytli Tveten
European energy systems are in a period of significant transition, with the increasing shares of variable renewable energy (VRE) and less flexible fossil-based generation units as predominant factors. The supply-side changes are expected to cause large short-term electricity price volatility. More frequent periods of low electricity prices may mean that electric use in flexible heating systems will become more profitable, and such flexible heating systems may, in turn, improve the integration of increasing shares of...

Musik og billeddannelse (GIM) med PTSD-ramte flygtninge: Introduktion til tre single case-studier

Bolette Daniels Beck & Torben Moe
Mange flygtninge kommer fra kulturer med helt andre forestillinger og begreber om årsager til og forventninger om behandling af psykisk lidelse end man almindeligvis anvender i psykiatrien. F.eks. er psykisk lidelse i mange mellemøstlige kulturer forbundet med skam, og udtrykkes måske derfor snarere i form af fysisk smerte. For at et behandlingsforløb skal lykkes, er der behov for kulturel sensitivitet hos behandleren, når der skal samarbejdes med tolken, skabes et møde på tværs af kulturer...

Fundraising Strategies Developed by MBA students in Project-Based Learning Courses

Joao Alberto Arantes Do Amaral, Liége Mariel Petroni & Aurélio Hess
The ability to raise funds is a skill that most modern project managers need. While a good deal of literature exists on the strategies NGOs employ to raise funds for their operations, less attention has been paid to the strategies used by students involved in Project-Based Learning courses that often partner with NGOs. Fundraising is an important skill that not only provides students with opportunities for creativity, but also helps them develop the communication skills...

China's People-to-people Diplomacy and Its Importance to China-EU Relations: A Historical Institutionalism Perspective

Shichen Wang
People-to-people exchange has become a heated topic of the Chinese foreign policy. Since the beginning of the twenty-first century, China has established people-to-people dialogues with the United States, the European Union, the United Kingdom, France and Russia. In 2012, China and the EU established a high-level dialogue for people-to-people exchange, making people-to-people exchange the third pillar of China-EU relations. However, China is not a newcomer to people-to-people exchanges with Europe. Why does China launch the...

Soft Power and Tourism: A Study of Chinese Outbound Tourism to Africa

Yu-Wen Chen & Niall Duggan
The increase of Sino-African interactions in trade, aid and investments has attracted Chinese tourists to Africa. The Beijing Action Plan of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) outlines China’s cultural diplomacy in Africa, delineating a number of areas of cultural cooperation: education; press, publishing and media; and tourism and people-to-people exchange programs in academia and think tanks among young people, women and athletes. Though scholars of International relations (IR) have detected that tourism is one...

Venezuela and China: Independency and Dependency in the Context of Interdependent Hegemony

Óscar García Agustín
In a world order without a sole hegemon, the dialectic relationship between the main global players and emerging powers enables nation-states to strategically favor their national interests as well as mutually beneficial alliances, whilst the multipolar world becomes strengthened. This article draws on this context of 'interdependent hegemony' to explore the existing relationship between Venezuela, as a swing state, and China, as one of the Big Three global powers. Particularly, I focus on Venezuelan efforts...



2010年后中美关系调整 ——基于“制度体系”理论解读 / The Readjustment of China-US Relations After 2010 - Based on The Theory of 'Institutional System'

Zhang Shuai
二战后,国际体系逐渐从“权力体系”进入“制度体系”时代,国际制度成为国际体系建设的核心,大国围绕制度结构中优势地位的争夺变为推动彼此关系变化的主要动因。“制度体系”背景下,国际制度主导国为维护自身主导地位,往往使用“安全杠杆”,在维持国际市场开放性前提下,建立“歧视”崛起国的国际经济制度,推动经济要素向着有利于己方的方向流动,削弱崛起国的物质基础和政策自由度。2010年前后,国际制度结构进入加速调整期,重点是在东亚地区,中国则是主要推动力。国际制度结构的调整威胁了美国原有的主导地位。因此,2010年前后,中美之间的矛盾瞬时尖锐起来。中美此轮博弈的焦点是东亚国际制度主导权,美国的安全战略只是手段,面对美国即将建立的针对中国的“歧视”性国际经济制度安排(TPP),中国需在更大范围内的加大开放,以“共同发展”应对该歧视战略。 After World War II, international order gradually changed from a 'power-centered system' to an 'Institution-based System'. International Institution became the core stone in the construction of the international order. Occupying an advantageous position in the institutional structure became the main factor in driving relational changes between major powers. Against the background of 'institutional system', the dominant countries are inclined to use the 'security lever' as a tool to maintain their dominant position. In order...

国际格局与日本政治大国谋求 / International Framework and Japan’s Pursuit of Being A Major Political Power

Meng Xiaoxu & Xin Xiaoyang
作为战败后崛起的国家,日本对国家发展道路的选择深受国际格局的影响。冷战时期的两极格局使日本在美国的支持下重新获得主权国家的身份。在冷战格局的框架下,日本在经济大国基础上提出了谋求政治大国的目标。冷战结束后,世界格局向多极化转变,日本将其视为实现政治大国的“机运”,期望更多地参与国际事务以及在国际秩序和经济体制方面发挥责任和作用;同时,日本在军事力量上也积极突破,为其践行政治大国化目标助力。21世纪后,多极化格局深化,新兴国家群体性崛起,日本谋求政治大国的进程加速,增强自身在区域经济中的领导力和影响力,谋求修改和平宪法,突破战后军事限制,在反恐等国际事务及联合国等国际组织活跃,推动政治大国化目标的实现。当前,日本政治大国的追求仍面临着不少障碍。 The boom of post-war Japan is deeply affected by the international framework when choosing the development path of the state. The bipolar architecture of the Cold War has made Japan a sovereign state again with the support of the United States. Within the Cold War framework, Japan has come up with the goal of being a political power based on its economic strength. After the end of Cold War, multipolar architecture has become the...

Professional discourse and professional identities at cross-purposes: Designer or entrepreneur?

Birgitte Norlyk
What happens when designer dreams meet business reality? This paper illustrates how a group of professional designers experienced emotional tensions and conflicts of personal and professional identity during an eight-week voluntary course on business and entrepreneurship for the creative professions. The designers' discourse, which revolved around ideals of commitment towards artistic integrity, aesthetics and design clashed with the hard core discourse of business which highlighted practical concerns relating especially to market considerations and the necessity...
