Abstract

This chapter addresses the following block of specific research questions: “How should the stock of buildings be modeled quantitatively in order to describe its transformation to high energy efficiency? Further, what insights for public policy can be derived from analyzing the resulting model in different scenarios” In order to build an empirically well-grounded simulation model, the chapter proceeds as follows. First, the current literature on the dynamic behavior of the stock of buildings is reviewed. Then, the simulation model is described and used to conduct scenario analysis. The chapter finishes with a preliminary discussion of policy levers.
