  1. 1. Energy efficiency, district heating and waste management : essays on environmental economics

    Author : Alejandro Egüez; Runar Brännlund; Thomas Broberg; Patrik Söderholm; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; energy efficiency gap; principal-agent; split incentives; ownership; energy performance certificates; quasi-natural experiment; policy evaluation; district heating prices; natural monopoly; waste management; EU waste hierarchy; policy stringency; policy enforcement; Economics; nationalekonomi;

    Abstract : Paper [I] investigates the energy efficiency of multi-dwelling buildings in Sweden to find out whether the ownership type matters. More specifically, we investigate whether rental apartment buildings are less energy efficient than cooperative apartment buildings and whether public ownership has a negative impact on energy efficiency.

  2. 2. Energy simulation and life cycle costs : estimation of a building's performance in the early design phase

    Author : Jutta Schade; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Construction Engineering and Management; Byggproduktion;

    Abstract : Sustainable development and the protection of the environment are key issues in our society today. The building stock in Europe accounts for over 40% of the final energy consumption, CO2 emissions and generation of waste. A large part of the life cycle performance is determined early. READ MORE

  3. 3. Green procurement of buildings: estimation of environmental impact and life-cycle cost

    Author : Eva Sterner; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Steel Structures; Stålbyggnad; Construction Engineering and Management; Byggproduktion;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on environmental impact reduction and life-cycle cost estimations in building procurement. The aim for the work presented in this thesis is to contribute to the understanding of whether costs and environmental impact of a building can be integrated in a, from the users perspective, practical model applied for tender evaluation.

  4. 4. Improvement of Labour Performance and Productivity in Uganda´s Building Industry

    Author : Henry Mwanaki Alinaitwe; Byggproduktion; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; performance improvement; Labour productivity; building industry; Uganda;

    Abstract : Productivity of labour is particularly important especially in developing countries where most of the building work is still carried out on manual basis. Previous research has pointed out that productivity in the building industry is low and in some cases declining. READ MORE

  5. 5. Managing Uncertainty in Environmental and Cost Life Cycle Studies of Building Design

    Author : Peter Ylmén; Kristina Mjörnell; Peter Ylmen; Tomas Ekvall; Jesper Arfvidsson; Johanna Berlin; Avdelningen för Byggnadsfysik; []

    Abstract : The building and construction sector accounted for 39% of energy and process-related carbon dioxide emissions in 2018 and global emissions from buildings increased by 2% for the second consecutive year. It is therefore important to find building design solutions that minimise the climate impact of buildings. READ MORE
