    Framing the benefits of European Union policy expansion on energy efficiency of buildings: A Swiss knife or a Trojan horse2023In: European Policy Analysis, E-ISSN 2380-6567, Vol. 9, no 3, p. 219-243Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyzes through qualitative and quantitative analysis of European Union (EU) policy documents the framing of EU policy on energy-efficient buildings from the 1970s to 2022. We find that it has been framed in different ways over the decades and the framing has expanded to include more and more benefits. Through this expansion, energy efficiency has been linked to other policy areas, such as security, environmental, economic, and social policy. The shifts in framing can be seen as responses to external events. The expansion can also be explained using two metaphors to analyze how the framing differs depending on political positioning. One where policy is seen as a Swiss knife, able to solve multiple political problems, and one where policy is seen as a Trojan horse, where new policy domains are snuck in by policymakers disguising it as energy efficiency policy to increase EU competency in relation to national governments.

    Lessons learnt from 20+years of research on multilevel governance of energy-efficient and zero-carbon buildings in the European Union2023In: Energy Efficiency, ISSN 1570-646X, E-ISSN 1570-6478, Vol. 16, no 8, article id 98Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    At global scale, the building sector accounts for 40% of total energy end use and almost 35% of greenhouse gas emissions. This makes it one of the most important sectors to focus on for reaching the 1.5-2 degrees C target of the Paris Agreement, to enhance energy security of supply and to alleviate energy poverty. The European Union (EU) is often seen as a leader in climate governance, which is also true for energy efficiency. The improvement of energy performance of buildings has been part of EU public policy for more than 50 years, making the EU a pioneer in the policy domain. Based on a semi-structured review of the scientific literature (N = 90), this paper is aimed at drawing the lessons from research on governance of energy-efficient and zero-carbon buildings in the EU. As for the findings, there is a multitude of policy instruments developed on different levels of governance, more or less integrated and managed by different actors and no single instrument is sufficient to stimulate energy-efficient and zero-carbon buildings. Five key challenges are identified in the governance literature examining the transition towards energy efficiency and zero-carbon buildings. An ambiguous leadership, heterogeneity of implementation, lack of incentives, limitations of non-regulatory policies and market-based instruments, and limited diffusion between governance levels. We also conclude that most policy instruments focus on new buildings which is problematic since the greatest challenge in the transition is the renovation of the large existing building stock.

    Multi-level governance and policy for a transition towards energy efficient and zero carbon buildings in the European union: a literature review2022Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The improvement of the energy performance of buildings have been an issue in public policy for more than 50 years. On a global scale, the buildings sector accounts for 40 per cent of total energy end-use and almost 35 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions, making it one of the most important sectors to focus on for reaching the 1.5 °C target of the Paris Agreement. The topic was first incorporated in European Union (EU) energy policy during the 1970’s oil crisis and is now fully immersed in EU architecture of multi-level governance where the actually policy process could be opaque for people outside the system. This paper analyses by a narrative literature review the academic literature on governance and policy processes around EU policy on energy efficient and zero-carbon buildings. The value of this review is its broader consideration of the policy pathways to reduce the building sector’s climate impact, offering new perspectives and pointing to areas for further research considering all components, their interactions and interdependence.
