Understenshöjdens framtida utveckling: ett arbete om energieffektiviseringar i ekobyn samt uppgraderingar av dess energisystem utifrån ett hållbart perspektiv
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Understenshöjden is Stockholm's largest eco-village which was built in the early 1990s with the vision of enabling ecological living for people. However the ecovillage is no longer considered as environmentally friendly because of its relatively high energy consumption, and non-updated energy system. The purpose of this study is therefore to investigate how Understenshöjden should reduce their energy consumption and upgrade its energy system by using Blower-Door, IR-camera and Design Builder. The results show that the houses are generally poorly insulated which should be fixed with seals around windows and doors. Furthermore, Understenshöjden is recommended to replace its pellet boiler and solar panels to new ones instead of investing in heat pumps and photovoltaic cells.
