  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

    Abstract : In the U.S., work-related death is an all too familiar occurrence on farms. Tractor overturns continue to be the most frequent cause of these fatalities. READ MORE

  5. 5. Retrofitted Solar Domestic Hot Water System for Single-Family Electrically-Heated Houses: Development and testing

    Author : Ricardo Bernardo; Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Solar domestic hot water; retrofitting; single family electrically heated houses; high solar fraction; photovoltaic thermal concentrating hybrids; PVT; parabolic reflectors; CPC thermal collector.;

    Abstract : In Sweden, there are roughly half a million single family houses that use electric heating for both domestic hot water production and space heating. Since electricity is the most expensive energy source in Sweden, it is interesting to install a high solar fraction solar thermal system to reduce the energy use in these houses. READ MORE
