Using a segmented dynamic dwelling stock model for scenario analysis of future energy demand: The dwelling stock of Norway 2016–2050

A dynamic and segmented dwelling stock model is applied for energy analyses.
A case study was conducted for the Norwegian dwelling stock 2016–2050.
More advanced and/or frequent renovation give limited additional energy savings.
Use of local energy sources, e.g. heat pumps and PV, has a large future potential.
User behaviour is likely to strongly reduce the real energy savings in the system.
