Transport, Energy Conservation and Energy Efficiency in Buildings Explored as Situations of Opportunity for City Transformation

Aleh Kliatsko and Per Lundqvist
Abstract—This paper presents methodological developments and findings from the on-going research project entitled Situations of Opportunity in the Growth and Change of three Stockholm City Districts, called SitCit for short. In this project a future studies approach is used to create scenarios of more sustainable Stockholm City Districts (Bromma, Rinkeby, Södermalm) formulated as an overall 60% reduction in energy use in private transports, residential multifamily buildings and citizens’ everyday life by the year 2060. Increased energy efficiency energy usage systems (EUS’s) and conservation of services and functions will lead to reduced dependency on fossil fuels and lower CO2 emissions. In order to evaluate these two specific goals are set for the project: the average primary energy usage (power) per capita should not exceed 2kW per person and the CO2 emissions per capita should not exceeded 1 ton per year. The paper describes issues of energy use as consequence of human activities in cities and especially situation where the opportunities for change are significant.

Index Terms—Bottom-up approach, energy conservation, human activity system (HAS), situation of opportunity (Sit Opp).
