Purpose and goal

Ljusbo Rental House addresses global and national challenge that buildings account for over 40 % of energy use and the concrete industry accounts for 8% of the world´s CO2 emissions. The project has resulted in the development of a wood housing cluster and expected effects, which jointly represent an overall solution for the purpose of accelerating the transition to climate-positive wood houses with the market´s lowest rent. The business model has resulted in a 2-room and kitchen apartment 35 sqm that stores 400 kg CO2 / sqm in plus energy houses. Prototype exists for phase 2.

Expected results and effects

Fulfilled goals are: Measurements for evaluation and development of plus-houses. Methods for improved energy-efficiency and construction. Analysis. Calculations on plus-house potential. At University of Gävle, 4 BSc theses have been completed: Thermal storage in external walls, thermo-ceramic membrane, high performance insulation and profitable insulation. Calculations of CO2 storage in wood houses completed. Mapping 290 municipalities rendered 20 meetings and agreement with 3 municipalities.
