Energy audit and calculation strategies for energy flows in buildings: a case study of Vallongatan 1


This thesis involves an energy audit of a building with offices and laboratories in Uppsala, Sweden. The calculations are performed in Microsoft Excel and were later used as the basis for developing calculation strategies for similar, future, energy audits.


The building was erected in the early 1990s and the heating requirement of just above 700 MWh is covered by district heating from the city network. The total gross floor area is about 8400 m2 and is served by an air conditioning system consisting of seven ventilation units with rotary heat exchangers, heating and cooling coils, as well as water radiators throughout the building.


No significant improvement measures have been implemented since the construction, and the building therefore has a potential to improve its energy performance. The report addresses a number of measures that could be taken, as well as an evaluation of each one. The most economically viable of these would be to clean the rotary heat exchangers, which is deemed to have a potential to save about 70 MWh or 48 700 SEK annually. In comparison to the estimated cost of between 35 000 and 42 000 SEK this is likely to become profitable as early as the first year.


The calculation templates that were developed cover three different building standards, these are categorized as low, improved and advanced standard. Here, the desired areas and types of activities are typed in easily for either individual rooms or entire offices or buildings. The templates provide estimates regarding power and energy needs for heating and comfort cooling, recommended air flows, heat development and dissipation as well as carbon dioxide concentration in the room air.
