Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
In this report the upcoming sustainable residential district of Östra Sala backe in the city of Uppsala is studied. The aim of the thesis is to map and analyze the content of the chosen constructor’s specific energy use and how they have calculated it. The aim is also to analyze how some actors in the energy sector recommend that the specific energy use should be calculated. The study is based on interviews with the constructors and reviews of their applications. With the information from the interviews the specific energy use could be mapped and compared. The result shows uncertainties in the presented values, mostly due to the early stage of the project. The project is the first of this kind in Uppsala but similar projects has been both planned and built in other Swedish cities. Differences and similarities between the earlier projects and Östra Sala backe are considered.
