Mainstreaming av passivhus : En studie av energieffektiva bostadshus i Sverige (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The passive house concept has become increasingly popular in the building sector in the lost twenty years ond is deemed to ploy on important role in aligning the housing sector with climate and environmental policy objectives. However, for such buildings to ploy this port they need to be more widespread, more common and more accepted by mainstream actors and institutions. The deployment of passive houses involves changes and adaptations in different parts of society. It involves changes in institutional and organisational set-ups, and it involves market and regulatory changes. Previous research on passive houses has focused on demonstration projects or has taken for granted that a dissemination will lead to a full-scale transition of the building sector. This puts undue focus on emerging actors and technologies emerging in isolation. This thesis investigates the wider deployment of passive houses with a focus on mainstreaming. This means that focus is on different social arenas where the deployment of passive houses is negotiated between multiple actors. This thesis contributes to a comprehensive picture of how passive house deployment is shaped through a study of attempts to mainstream these buildings in Sweden. It shows how such attempts hove been partially successful in specific companies and regions, but it also show how a normalization of these buildings has been limited due to market, regulatory, and political developments

Abstract [sv]

Possivhuskonceptet hor blivit allt populärare under de senaste tjugo åren och bedöms spela en viktig roll för att anpassa bostadssektorn till klimat- och miljöpolitiska mål. För att sådana byggnader ska kunna göra skillnad måste de dock få en större utbredning och bli accepterade av etablerade aktörer och institutioner. Utbyggnaden av passivhus innebär förändringar och anpassningar i olika delar av samhället. Dessa innefattar institutionella och organisatoriska förändringar, samt marknadsförändringar och en anpassad lagstiftning. Tidigare forskning har framförallt studerat demonstrationsprojekt eller hor tagit för givet att en spridning av possivhus kommer att leda till en fullskalig omställning av byggsektorn. Detta lägger otillbörligt fokus pö nya aktörer och tekniker som utvecklats utan bredare social förankring. Denna avhandling studerar utbyggnaden av passivhus med fokus på "mainstreoming". Det innebär att fokus ligger på olika sociala arenor där spridningen av passivhus förhandlas mellan nya och etablerade aktörer. Avhandlingen bidrar till att presentera en övergripande bild av hur passivhusutbyggnod tar form genom en studie av försök att sprida dessa byggnader i Sverige. Avhandlingen visar hur sådana försök delvis har lyckats i specifika företag och regioner, men den visar också hur en normalisering av dessa byggnader har varit begränsad på grund av marknads-, lagstiftnings- och politiska aspekter.
