Abstract
This Bachelor thesis is intended to deduce how future single family homes in Sweden will be constructed in the near future as well as an analysis of today’s market. The EU has the goal that by the year 2020 all newly constructed buildings should be ”near zero energy houses”. This is the primary reason for the choice of topic as well as the uncertainty that surronds what a near zero energy house implies. An introduction is given to explain and underline the implications of the relevant EU directive as well as a presentation of independent opinions on whether the directive is achievable or not. Our problem statements are as follows: • In which direction is the market headed? • Are there any obvious trends/methods that are used? • Do any gaps... (More)
This Bachelor thesis is intended to deduce how future single family homes in Sweden will be constructed in the near future as well as an analysis of today’s market. The EU has the goal that by the year 2020 all newly constructed buildings should be ”near zero energy houses”. This is the primary reason for the choice of topic as well as the uncertainty that surronds what a near zero energy house implies. An introduction is given to explain and underline the implications of the relevant EU directive as well as a presentation of independent opinions on whether the directive is achievable or not. Our problem statements are as follows: • In which direction is the market headed? • Are there any obvious trends/methods that are used? • Do any gaps in today’s technology exist that need to be remedied before the directive is implemented?
• What are the potential problems with energy efficient buildings? The method we will be using is quantitative as well as qualitative. As a theoretical reference frame existing laws and requirements are presented. Results and discussions form the main body of the thesis, where results from interviews based on 13 companies are presented and analysed. Finally our conclusions are presented which aim to answer our problem statements: We have found that today’s small housing market adhere to today’s building regulations with a noticable margin, ca 70 % in terms of energy usage, however energy efficient solutions are a balance between investment and running costs. The problems with energy efficient housing are technical and cost orientated, where an insufficient amount of practical knowledge has been identified. The potential to build energy efficient housing exists today, we believe that an energy consumption that is 50 % of today’s regulatory standard is possible in the near future; however, for this to become reality it must first become economically viable for the customer and incentives must be created.
