Abstract (English)

The project focuses on transitioning buildings to full reliance on renewable energy, while assuring inclusive and affordable housing. It combines (1) techno-economic modelling of decorbonisation scenarios with (2) an analysis of possible effects on real estate prices and aspects of social inclusion, and (3) transdisciplinary research on policy options to implement social innovations. The active engagement of stakeholders and municipalities will ensure the targeting of policy makers and academia.
