Career - Collaborative Research Program on Energy Efficiency in Renovation

My PhD project is a collaboration between Linköping University and Stångåstaden, the largest housing company in Linköping, Sweden. This project collaboration focuses on the renovation of the so called million-program housing and houses built in the postwar period. The overall objective of the project is to explore how to include energy efficiency measures in an effective way in the refurbishment of these types of buildings and to provide a model for improving knowledge transfer between business and academia. Another focus is to better apply university research into practice for future renovation projects, creating learning for the major renovations of the million program housing required in the future in Sweden. The project is an interdisciplinary research effort with researchers from two different departments, namely Tema T, Technology and Social Change and the Division of Energy Systems, IEI.
