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

    Author : Qian Wang; Ivo Martinac; Hasan Ala; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Industrialized retrofitting; retrofitting toolkits; Swedish residential buildings; energy savings; cost-effectiveness; building typology; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : Energy utilization issues are becoming increasingly important around the world. Existing residential and building service sectors represent a large part of total energy utilization, and the corresponding operational costs and environmental impacts are high. READ MORE

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

    Author : Gabriel Auziane; Byggproduktion; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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 : Mozambique, situated in south-east Africa, has sub-tropical and tropical climate and plenty of natural resources for energy production. The country is however poor, and only about 25% of the population has access to electricity from the grid. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bottom-Up Modeling of Building Stock Dynamics - Investigating the Effect of Policy and Decisions on the Distribution of Energy and Climate Impacts in Building Stocks over Time

    Author : Claudio Nägeli; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; synthetic building stock; agent-based modeling; Building stock modeling; renewable energy; building stock dynamics; energy efficiency; GHG emissions;

    Abstract : In Europe, residential and commercial buildings are directly and indirectly responsible for approximately 30–40% of the overall energy demand and emitted greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. A large share of these buildings was erected before minimum energy-efficiency standards were implemented and are therefore not energy- or carbon-efficient. READ MORE

  4. 4. 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

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

    Author : Johan Heier; Viktoria Martin; Chris Bales; Signhild Gehlin; Högskolan Dalarna; []
    Keywords : 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
