Danish building typologies. Participation in the TABULA project
This report was made as part of the Danish participation in the TABULA (Typology Approach for Building Stock Energy Assessment) project supported by Intelligent Energy Europe
The objective of TABULA was to develop a harmonised building typology for European countries. A Danish typology for residential buildings was established by SBi in the project. Three different main building types were used: Single-family houses, terraced houses and apartment blocks. Each main building type was again split up in nine periods of buildings representing typical building tradition and insulation levels. Within each main building type and building period, a typical building has been selected from the energy labelling scheme database as a real example building.
Another main purpose of the building typology was to establish a tool that is able to calculate different energy-saving scenarios for the entire residential building stock. To make such calculation average buildings were constructed. These theoretically designed building models are based on statistical data obtained from the Danish Energy Labelling Scheme and other knowledge sources of buildings.
