Article
Much effort has in recent years been directed to support sustainable indoor climate control strategies in historic buildings. In this paper we show the necessity to complement the dominant technical approaches with research that take a wider interest in specific contexts, social practices, and negotiated decisions. The objective of the paper is to...
Thesis
Full text available at: http://hdl.handle.net/2077/45415 Balancing use, preservation and energy use is a fundamental challenge for the whole heritage field. This is put to the point in designing and operating systems for indoor climate control in historic buildings, where competing objectives such as preservation, comfort, accessibility, energy use...
Article
Standardization for indoor climate control in historic buildings has recently taken a new direction with standards and guidelines that focus more on decision processes than outcomes. The objective of the paper is to explore and discuss how standards can evolve to both fit and guide decision processes to facilitate a sustainable management of histor...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Climate change will give a warmer and more humid climate in Scandinavia, which will increase the risk of bio-deterioration of cultural heritage. Given the limited understanding of future risks, there is a need to adopt management strategies that are robust, adaptive, and that facilitate organizational learning. We therefore suggest that safeguardin...
Article
Purpose Improving the energy performance of historic buildings has the potential to reduce carbon emissions while protecting built heritage through its continued use. However, implementing energy retrofits in these buildings faces social, economic, and technical barriers. The purpose of this conceptual paper is to present the approach of IEA-SHC Ta...
Conference Paper
This paper describes the work undertaken within the international project IEA SHC Task 59 Renovating Historic Buildings Towards Zero Energy to produce a handbook for the planning of energy retrofits in historic buildings. The handbook is an attempt to increase use and usability of the European standard EN 16883:2017 - Conservation of cultural herit...
Article
Sverige har statliga styrmedel använts för att energieffektivisera bebyggelsen sedan 1970-talet, vilket gör att det i dag går att tala om att det finns ett slags arv av energieffektivi-seringspolitik som vi ännu förhåller oss till. I denna artikel undersöker vi hur en sådan politik i riktning mot mer energieffektiva hus formera-des och vilken effek...
Article
Purpose Sweden, like other countries, has set ambitious national targets for both energy efficiency and conservation of heritage values in the built environment. However, how these policies are implemented on a local level and how they affect each other is not known. This study aims to argue that extensive energy-saving policies can have unintentio...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Climate change is expected to result in a warmer and more humid climate in northern Europe. Historic buildings with none or primitive climate control will face higher risk of bio-deterioration – mainly due to mould, rot and insects. The first part of the paper presents a technical cross-comparison of three different strategies for preventing mould...
Article
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to evaluate long-term effects of previous policies for energy efficiency on energy performance and heritage values. A further ambition is to better understand the relationship between energy and preservation by exploring a quantitative method of combining energy performance data with official heritage designatio...
Article
Full-text available
The paper analyses the ‘energy savings plan for existing buildings’ (EBB) introduced in Sweden after the first oil crisis of 1973, and how effects of policies on the built heritage were perceived and communicated to a wider public. A conflict between conservation aims and energy efficiency was constructed for the first time in Sweden. The programme...
Article
Full-text available
A new methodology for long-term monitoring of climate change impacts on historic buildings and interiors has been developed. This paper proposes a generic framework for how monitoring programs can be developed and describes the planning and arrangement of a Norwegian monitoring campaign. The methodology aims to make it possible to establish a data-...
Article
Full-text available
Organizations and institutions managing built heritage have to make use of increasingly detailed, elaborate and complex climate change impact assessments. It is a challenge to determine how, when and by whom climate predictions should be translated into risk estimates usable for decision-making. In this paper results from the Climate for Culture pr...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A significant amount of uncertainty is generated in the process of combining projections of future climate, building simulations and damage functions to produce risk maps for historic buildings. The objective of this paper is to identify and qualitatively describe the main uncertainties in the production of such maps. The main sources of uncertaint...
