  1. 1. A multi-method assessment to support energy efficiency decisions in existing residential and academic buildings

    Author : Shoaib Azizi; Thomas Olofsson; Gireesh Nair; Olga Kordas; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; residential dwellings; institutional buildings; sustainability; energy renovation; adoption of technology; decision-making; smart solutions; ICT; IoT; sustainability; hållbarhet;

    Abstract : Rapid decarbonization of building stock is essential for the energy transition required to mitigate climate change and limit the global temperature rise below 1.5 °C. The decision-making for the adoption of energy efficiency measures (EEMs) is often complex and involves lasting consequences and risks. READ MORE

  2. 2. Urban building energy modeling : A systematic evaluation of modeling and simulation approaches

    Author : Fatemeh Johari; Joakim Widén; Joakim Munkhammar; Olga Kordas; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Urban building energy modeling; Urban energy Planning; Bottom-up energy modeling; Thermal zoning; Model complexity;

    Abstract : Urban energy system planning can play a pivotal role in the transition of urban areas towards energy efficiency and carbon neutrality. With the building sector being one of the main components of the urban energy system, there is a great opportunity for improving energy efficiency in cities if the spatio-temporal patterns of energy use in the building sector are accurately identified.

    Abstract : In order to reach the current climate goals, energy consumption needs to decrease in all sectors, including households, which produce 20% of the European emissions. However, it is difficult to increase residents’ engagement in their household electricity consumption as it is an ‘invisible’ form of energy, the monetary incentives are often too small and environmental incentives are not very effective.
