  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. Low-temperature Heating in Existing Swedish Residential Buildings : Toward Sustainable Retrofitting

    Author : Qian Wang; Sture Holmberg; Natasa Nord; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Retrofitting; Low-temperature heating; Energy efficiency; Sustainability; Swedish residential buildings; Renovering; Lågtemperatursuppvärmning; Energieffektivitet; Hållbarhet; Svenska bostadsbyggnader; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : As an energy-efficient alternative in cold climate countries such as Sweden, low-temperature heating (LTH) technology has shown promising advantages and shortcuts to contribute to the efficiency of heat supply, as well as to the overall sustainability of building performance. The goal of this thesis is to contribute to the development of methodologies and modeling tools to support sustainable retrofitting in the Swedish housing stock. READ MORE

  3. 3. Retrofitting of old Exterior Wall with Vacuum Insulation Panels: Measurements of Thermal Properties, Moisture Performance and Practical Considerations

    Author : Pär Johansson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; hygrothermal sensor; listed building; transient plane source; retrofitting; indoor moisture supply; vacuum insulation panel; hygrothermal simulation; exterior wall;

    Abstract : The building industry is facing one of its most challenging tasks ever. Until 2050 the energy use for heating of buildings should be decreased by 50% which means a large part of the building stock have to be retrofitted to become more energy efficient. One of the possible solutions is to add thermal insulation to the exterior wall of the buildings. READ MORE
