An implementation guide for the use and development of the EEB_Sweden Model v1.0

Research output: Book/ReportReport


The objective of this report is to provide an implementation guide to understanding the Energy Efficiency in Buildings (EEB) model as applied to the Swedish Residential sector. The report depicts the work that prepares the ground to use and test the model to evaluate energy efficiency policy instruments targeting the Swedish residential sector during the next phase of the project. It is argued will argue that EEB model offers an opportunity to capture or integrate critical modelling aspects that justify our project. For instance, the model has been developed to explicitly analyse energy efficiency policies targeting the building sector. In addition, the model allows to some extent the simulation of decentralised micro-economic technology choice. Importantly, decisions about technology choice are subject to financial and also non-economic factors (e.g. appearance).
The report provides a brief description of the EEB model for the general reader and the model user. It focuses on an understanding of the model’s methodological approach; including its main assumptions, structure of analysis process and technology choice decision framework. For the use and development of the EEB model to the case of the Swedish residential sector, data and assumptions for the base year (2005) are presented. The data (e.g. energy aspects, emission factors and technologies) address single- and two-family dwellings as well as multi-family dwellings. Arguments to develop different baseline or counterfactuals are elaborated. The report concludes with a brief description of ongoing research steps aiming at the next and final phase of the project.
