Regulating energy use in existing buildings - two models for legal implementation of energy use reduction measures

Abstract: This thesis investigates how regulatory instruments, and specifically requirements rules, targeting energy use in existing residential buildings could be made part of the forceful intervention that is required to reduce the use of energy in existing residential buildings. Two approaches to the design of requirement rules are analyzed: a detail-steering approach and a target-oriented approach. The two approaches highlight different ways of approaching the issue of energy use in buildings and they are feasible for highlighting potential implications of different ways of steering.
