  1. 1. Energy Efficiency through Thermal Energy Storage : Possibilities for the Swedish Building Stock

    Author : Johan Heier; Viktoria Martin; Chris Bales; Signhild Gehlin; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; thermal energy storage; buildings; energy efficiency; energy savings; peak load reduction; Swedish building stock; termisk energilagring; byggnader; energieffektivisering; energibesparing; toppbelastningsutjämning; Sveriges byggnadsbestånd; Värmelagring i byggnader;

    Abstract : The need for heating and cooling in buildings constitutes a considerable part of the total energy use in a country and reducing this need is of outmost importance in order to reach national and international goals for reducing energy use and emissions. One important way of reaching these goals is to increase the proportion of renewable energy used for heating and cooling of buildings. READ MORE

  2. 2. Toward Industrialized Retrofitting : Accelerating the Transformation of the Residential Building Stock in Sweden

  4. 4. The role of biobased building materials in the climate impacts of construction : Effects of increased use of biobased materials in the Swedish building sector

    Author : Diego Peñaloza; Magnus Wålinder; Martin Erlandsson; Andreas Falk; Johanna Berlin; Dimitris Athanassiadis; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LCA; timber buildings; timber bridges; biobased building materials; dynamic LCA; climate change mitigation; building stock; scenario analysis; biogenic carbon; Byggvetenskap; Civil and Architectural Engineering;

    Abstract : A significant share of the global climate change impacts can be attributed to the construction sector. One mitigation strategy is increasing the use of biobased materials. Life cycle assessment (LCA) has been used to demonstrate the benefits of this, but forest complexities create uncertainty due to omission of key aspects. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modelling Energy Conservation and CO2 Mitigation in the European Building Stock

    Author : Erika Mata Las Heras; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cost assessment; bottom-up building modelling; techno-economical potentials; archetype building; energy conservation measures; European building stock;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates energy conservation in building stocks with the aim of developing a methodology that can be applied to the national building stocks of the European Union (EU). For this purpose, a bottom-up building-stock model and a methodology for describing the building-stock have been established. READ MORE
