Nordic Analysis of Climate Friendly Buildings
This report summarizes the findings of the work conducted within the project “Nordic Analysis of Climate Friendly Buildings”, financed by the Nordic Council of Ministers. The main goal of the project was to establish a knowledge and decision base for a Nordic innovation program that will promote the development and demonstration of low energy and climate friendly buildings. The innovation program should support a development that brings the Nordic countries to an international forefront with respect to business strongholds and market penetration of low energy and climate friendly buildings.
Low energy and climate friendly buildings are not unanimously defined. In this project the term will encompass buildings with an energy performance at least 25% lower than current national building regulations, and includes passive houses and zero energy/emission standards. In the following text, such buildings will be denoted LEB (Low Energy Buildings).
