Energy Efficient Renovation and operation of buildings. A short introduction
Course duration: 4 h
The European Union directives on energy conservation in buildings are expected to initiate an extensive transformation of the existing building stock. In Sweden most of the buildings stock has been built before 1975. This represents challenges and opportunities on energy efficient renovation.
Most companies are interested in renovation that is both energy efficient and cost effective.
The goal with this course is to provide the student with information about best practices in Sweden as well as challenges and opportunities in renovation within the Research School Reesbe.
Keywords: energy efficiency, sustainable renovation, simulation of building
Pre-requisites: Basic knowledge on building physics.
