Abstract [en]

An energy calculation model for Swedish houses   that is fast, flexible and user-friendly has been developed within the   framework of this thesis.  The model   also provides a set of actions which may be investigated in the model based   on savings and payback period. Energy use in a house depends on the technical   conditions, such as building envelope and heating systems, which outdoor   climate the house is exposed to and who lives in the house. Energy use for a   house can be divided into heating, hot water and household electricity. There   are several methods to calculate the energy use of a house. This report   summarizes the methods that may be suitable for a fast and user-friendly   calculation model. Various energy efficiency measures as may be appropriate   for a house are described in terms of cost and savings perspectives. The   analytical model includes a model that calculates the use of household   electricity, based on the residents of the house. The household-electricity   model is based on raw data from a survey of 400 households conducted by the   Swedish Energy Agency. A sensitivity analysis has been made in the energy   calculation model, which gives a sensitivity of about 18 percent. Of the   total sensitivity more than half (10 points) consists of the sensitivity of   the indoor temperature and efficiency of heating systems.
