Regionalization of buildings-stock description as basis for evaluating energy conservation measures - South East Norway and South West Sweden
Paper in proceedings, 2014
This paper presents a description of regional building stocks in the South West of Sweden and the South East of Norway and provides a first validation by means of modelled Final Energy Demand, which is compared with available statistics. The aim of the work is to provide a basis for modelling the assessment of effects and costs of various energy conservation measures applied to the existing building stocks of regions within a country. The aggregated descriptions of the national building stocks of Sweden and Norway through representative buildings are downscaled to the regions. We conclude that the uncertainty in the methodology applied is higher for the regions than for the national level, due primarily to less data available for validation than on the national level. This uncertainty raises concern about how targets on increased energy efficiency and emissions reductions and are going to be monitored, if such targets are to be fulfilled.
