  1. 1. Achieving building energy performance requirements and evaluation methods for residential buildings in Sweden, Norway, and Finland

    Author : Ingrid Allard; Thomas Olofsson; Gireesh Nair; Ronny Östin; Osama Hassan; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; building codes; energy performance; evaluation methods; air tightness;

    Abstract : Building energy performance has always been important in the cold climate of Sweden, Norway and Finland. To meet the goal that all new buildings should be nearly zero-energy buildings by 2020, set in the EU directive 2010/31/EU [1] on the energy performance of buildings (EPBD recast), the building sector in Europe now faces a transition towards buildings with improved energy performance.
