  1. 1. Cost-optimality approach for prioritisation of buildings envelope energy renovation A techno-economic perspective

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Farshid Bonakdar; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Building renovation; Energy efficiency; Cost-optimality; costeffectiveness; Building envelope; Residential buildings; Building energy simulation; Brute-force algorithm; Sustainable Built Environment; Hållbar byggd miljö;

    Abstract : The existing residential buildings in the European countries are rather old and often fail to meet the current energy performance criteria. In Sweden, about 45% of the existing residential buildings have been constructed before 1960. READ MORE

  2. 2. An Approach Towards Sustainable Building

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Navid Gohardani; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Sustainability; Built environment; Sustainable renovation; High-efficient insulation materials; Sweden Green Building Council; Vacuum Insulation Panels VIP ; Decision making; GreenBuilding; Early stage; Stakeholders; A Concept for promotion of sustainable retrofitting and renovation in Early Stages ACES ; Early Stage Primary Energy Estimation Tool ESPEET ;

    Abstract : The motivation for development of energy efficiency and implementation of novel advanced materials applied in buildings can be traced to increasing energy costs in conjunction with an enhanced environmental awareness among people. This doctoral dissertation presents contributions towards sustainable building, where factors such as building technology, energy efficiency in buildings, workers' health issues during construction measures, and certain economic considerations for renovation of buildings have been considered.

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

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Ingrid Allard; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    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.

  4. 4. Passive houses in Sweden - Experiences from design and construction

    University dissertation from Energy and Building Design, Lund University

    Author : Ulla Janson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Leadership; Planning process; Building construction; Residential buildings; Passive house; Energy efficiency;

    Abstract : The sector of residential buildings and service organizations uses 36% of the total energy in Sweden. In June 2006, it was decided by the Swedish parliament that the energy use in residential buildings and premises should decrease by 20% per heated unit area before 2020. READ MORE

  5. 5. Heat transfer through a well insulated external wooden frame wall : an investigation of the effects of normal defects in the insulation resulting from incident wind and air flow through the wall

    University dissertation from Byggnadsfysik LTH, Lunds Tekniska Högskola

    Author : Peter Roots; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1997]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Building construction; Electrical conduits.; Nogging pieces; Airgaps; Breaks in the insulation; Variations in the insulation; Through wind; Forced convection; Incident wind; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : The heat requirement of a building can turn out to be greater than was calculated at the design stage. The reason for this may be that heat transport though the building envelope is greater than expected. This in turn can be due to the structure not fulfilling the design requirements in respect of windtightness and airtightness. READ MORE
