Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att belysa vilka faktorer som fastighetsbolagen upplever påverkar lönsamheten för och genomförandet av energiinvesteringar inom värme och ventilation. Studien är av kvalitativ karaktär och fallstudier görs på sju företag med semistrukturerade intervjuer som insamlingsmetod. Därefter spelas alla intervjuer in och transkriberas. Flera olika faktorer påverkar lönsamheten för och genomförandet av energiinvesteringar i flerbostadshus. De undersökta faktorerna som påverkar investeringarnas lönsamhet är: typ av investering, kalkylmetod, avkastningskrav, energipriset, intressenter och institutionella faktorer. Studiens resultat tyder på att värmeåtervinning (FX), tilläggsisolering av vind, injusteringar och optimering samt styr och reglering varit de mest företagsekonomiskt lönsamma energiinvesteringarna. Den vanligaste beräkningsgrunden var Livscykelkostnadsanalys (LCC). Uppsatsen bidrar till att öka kunskapen om hur fastighetsbolag ser på energiinvesteringar och dess lönsamhet. Studiens kvalitativa resultat kan inte generaliseras till andra fastighetsbolag eller till framtida investeringar. Vidare forskning rekommenderas nationellt och kvantitativt inom lönsamma energiinvesteringar. Det skulle vara av intresse att fastställa de mest lönsamma investeringarna i Sverige, orsaker till vad som hindrar energiinvesteringar samt hur olika beräkningssätt kan påverka dess lönsamhet och realisering.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to highlight the factors that real estate companies is experiencing affects the profitability and the implementation of energy investments in heating and ventilation. The study is qualitative in nature and case studies are conducted at seven companies with semi-structured interviews as the method of collection. Furthermore, all the interviews are recorded and transcribed. Several factors affect the viability and implementation of energy investments in apartment buildings. The investigated factors affecting the profitability of investment are: the type of investment, calculation method, yield, energy price, stakeholders and institutional factors. The study's results suggest that heat recovery (FX), additional insulation of attic, adjustments and optimization, and control and regulation was the most economically viable energy investments. The most common basis of calculation was the Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCC). The study contributes to the knowledge of real estate companies’ perspectives of energy investments and their profitability. The study's qualitative results cannot be generalized neither to other real estate companies or future investments. Further quantitative and national research is recommended in profitable energy investments. It would be of interest to determine the most profitable investments in Sweden, causes of the barriers preventing energy investments and how different methods of calculation may affect its profitability and implementation.
