User acceptance of cost-effective energy and carbon emissions optimization in building renovation.

Blomsterberg, Åke LU ; Pedersen, Eja LU ; Baptista, Nuno and Fragoso, R (2015)
Abstract
To meet EU energy and climate targets, energy efficiency of the existing building stock must be drastically
improved. Within IEA ECB Annex 56 one of the best practice energy renovations is a group of multi-family
buildings in Sweden, recently thoroughly renovated. Residents' perception of renovations and appraisal of
implemented measures were captured by interviews with tenants and a literature review. Residents'
possible acceptance of energy renovations are related to improvements that are directly experienced and
visible. Resident participation is beneficial. Crucial is the collaboration between all stakeholders. Long-term
environmental benefits or financial gains are arguments that might not be sufficient.
