This paper describes the district heating and electricity load of Kalmar, Sweden. Unfortunately, it has not been possible to examine one full year because the monitoring of the energy use for district heating and electricity, and the outdoor temperature, did not exactly overlap. However, more than 7200 h, of the 8760 in a full year, have been examined. It is shown that the district heat load has a far higher correlation with the outdoor temperature (a coefficient of 0Â·89), than has the electricity load (0Â·33). Thus, it is much easier to predict the influence of, e.g. an insulation retrofit for the building stock where district heating is used compared with electricity space heating. It is also shown how an estimate can be made of the thermal transmission factor for the total building stock.
