Användning av biomimiktillämpningar för att förbättra energiprestandan i byggnader
The purpose of this thesis is to answer the question Which applications of biomimicry could improve the energy performance in buildings in Swedish and Nordic climate? This question is answered through three subqueries: Which possible applications of biomimicry to improve the energy performance in buildings are there?, Which potential European partners to KTH’s project Live-in Lab are there? and What are the possibilities for the introduction of biomimicry in the Swedish construction industry?
To answer the thesis’ questions, a literature study and interviews have been conducted. Several search engines and databases were used to find information for the literature study, and many articles and books based on the searches were studied. Three interviews were conducted for this thesis. The interviewees were a representative from a construction firm, a representative from the architectural profession and a representative from a real estate company. Furthermore, an investigation of the impact of biomimicry on the business model of a construction company as well as a SWOT-analysis have been made to further analyse the results from the literature study and the interviews.
