News story (2020) Frokostmøte med FutureBuilt: Lavkarbo byggematerialer
Byggfakta,
19 February 2020,
further featured in no. of sources: 1,

10 år med klimagassregnskaper. Hva har vi lært? Vi gjør opp status for den pågående klimadugnaden i byggenæringen og gir deg både matnyttige materialstrategier og hårete favorittprodukter.

Frokostmøtet arrangeres av FutureBuilt, Grønn Byggallianse, FME ZEN og Enova.
Frokostmøtet er fulltegnet. Om du ønsker å stå på venteliste, kan du sende en e-post til futurebuilt@futurebuilt.no

Det er 10 år siden Statsbygg lanserte klimagassberegninger for bygg – og med det et nytt designpremiss som har gitt føringer for materialpaletten i mer enn 50 FutureBuilt prosjekter og en rekke andre klimaforbilder. Resultatet er blant annet biobaserte byggesystemer, flere generasjoner lavkarbon-betong, de første sirkulære bygg-pilotene og nye og innovative lavutslippsmaterialer og produkter.

På frokostmøtet forteller både praktikere og forskere om erfaringene fra de mest ambisiøse forbildeprosjektene. Vi gir deg erfaringer fra 10 år med klimagassberegninger, materialstrategier for reduserte utslipp, oversikt over redskaper og verktøy for klimasmarte materialvalg, og anbefaler både dypøkologiske og stuerene produkter for utbyggere og arkitekter som ønsker å ligge i front.

Calculation of Key Performance Indicators of Energy and Power in Ydalir

Ydalir is the name of a development area located northeast of the centre of Elverum. The area is one of
the pilot areas in FME ZEN with ambitions of becoming a Zero Emission Neighbourhood (ZEN). At
the end of the construction period the area will have a new school, a kindergarten, and about 700
residential units. There are high ambitions for the development of Ydalir. For Ydalir to fulfil the ZEN
definition, it must be energy efficient, and the emissions from the area must be reduced. The emission
reductions in Ydalir will be achieved through building according to the Norwegian passive house
standard (NS 3700/NS3701), by using district heating, and by installing photovoltaic (PV) solar panels.

The development of the definition of a Zero Emission Neighbourhood (ZEN) and the development of
assessment criteria and key performance indicators is an ongoing process that will last throughout the
program period of FME ZEN. This work will enable an assessment of the performance of the ZEN pilot
areas. Based on the draft for the ZEN definition, the assessment criteria and KPIs (per 2019) can be
divided into the following categories: GHG Emissions, Energy, Power, Mobility, Spatial qualities,
economy and innovation.

Constructing Ydalir as a ZEN will have positive impacts on energy consumption, the peak load,
and the utilization of the local electricity grid.

The purpose of this report is to test the indicators on energy and power on a ZEN-pilot in the planning
phase. The suggested energy KPIs and power KPIs have been tested for Ydalir for the year 2035. It is
assumed that the area will be fully operational by this time. Two scenarios have been created for Ydalir,
2035: the first scenario represent the current expectations for the pilot area and is called the «ZEN
Scenario». The second scenario represent the reference project, or the «Business as usual» (BAU) case
for the development of Ydalir. This is called the «Baseline Scenario». The KPIs for Energy and Power
have been calculated for Ydalir for both scenarios.

This analysis shows that the KPI net energy demand can be reduced by 27 %, the total import of energy
can be reduced by 30%, and the combined peak load for electricity and heating can be reduced by 24%
in the ZEN-scenario compared to the Baseline Scenario.

Annual energy use and emissions from the use phase can be significantly reduced if the development
turns out as expected, if all developers follow the master plan, and if the use of transport by car is reduced
as expected. The testing of the KPIs used in ZEN within the categories Energy and Power shows that
there is a need for further work on system boundaries, the reference scenario, and finding standard
methodologies.

Involved ZEN-partners in this study have been SINTEF, Elverum Vekst, and Elverum municipality.
