    Abstract : In Sweden, buildings are responsible for about 40 % of total energy use and about 10 % of total CO2 emissions Today more than 60 % of existing Swedish residential buildings are over 40 years old and are in need of major renovation. In addition, 15 % of all multi-family buildings and 27 % of all single-family houses were built before 1945. READ MORE

  3. 3. Single and Double Skin Glazed Office Buildings - Analyses of Energy Use and Indoor Climate

    University dissertation from Energy and Building Design, Lund University

    Author : Harris Poirazis; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; thermal environment; indoor climate; energy use; building performance; building simulations; double skin façades; Glazed office buildings; single skin façades; thermal comfort;

    Abstract : The energy efficiency and thermal performance of highly glazed office buildings are often questioned. However, nowadays glazed buildings are increasingly being built around the world, mainly due to an architectural trend, followed by the preference of companies to a distinctive image that a glazed office building can provide.

  4. 4. Energy Efficiency in Residential Buildings in Mozambique - Measurements and Simulations

    University dissertation from Division of Building Science, Lund University

    Author : Gabriel Auziane; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy; Building; Measurements; Simulations; DEROB-LTH; Mozambique; Subtropical and Tropical climates; Energy efficiency; PV system; Electrical energy savings.;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in English Energy savings and climate change mitigation have been discussed in the world since the oil crisis in the 1970s and the building sector has been seen as one of the largest contributors to global warming effects in the world. Energy efficiency in buildings is a critical issue to be addressed in order to reduce electricity energy used in buildings and is one of the main tasks that is developed within the program Advancing Sustainable Construction in Mozambique.
