Is it economically justifiable to construct passive houses? (English)
Abstract [en]

The following report describes if it is economically justifiable to construct passive houses instead

of building with a traditional technique. And furthermore when the breakpoint occurs that the

both building techniques are equally as good from a financial perspective. The rapport does not

take any consideration for the environmental issue; it just focuses on the economical aspects

between the two alternatives.

All the facts is based upon the four passive houses in a neighbourhood called Blå Jungfrun, that

is constructed in Farsta, a suburb located to the south of Stockholm. Skanska Sweden Inc. is the

contractor and Svenska Bostäder Inc. is the developer for the project. An exceptional project for

this analyse due to the fact that the block originally was meant to be constructed in a traditional

(non-passive) way.

The report shows how a passive house works in general, and the specific solutions that are made

for Blå Jungfrun. Cost calibrations have been made to investigate the difference between both

building techniques. The higher construction cost for the passive houses is compared to the

higher administration cost for the traditional houses. Factors that has had the most influence on

the profitably of in both projects are construction cost, energy consumption, interest expense and

rent proceeds. It would cost 175 million SEK to construct the neighbourhood in a traditional

way, while the grand total is 190 million SEK for manufacturing the block as passive houses. A

15 million SEK difference that in the end takes 50 years to make up for profit wise.
