Improving energy efficiency and indoor climate of livestock buildings through passive and active adaptation measures

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

The project investigates energy use and indoor climate in livestock buildings considering both the actual and projected climate. Poor indoor climate leads to low animal welfare, reduced production, and reduced hygiene with higher risks for diseases. The risks can increase by climate change. A systemic analysis of hygrothermal conditions and energy performance will be performed in animal stables to identify the current conditions/risks and assess them for future climate. the project is led by Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet (SLU) and we contribute in the impact assessment of climate change on the buildings.
