This study applies the Multi Level Perspective (MLP) on the Swedish heat system. It combines niche and regime analyses to assess the feasibility of a transition in the Swedish heat system. For this, the following niches are considered: heat pumps, district heating, waste heat recovery, indvidual metering and billing, small-scale biomass, and low-energy housing. The regime analysis is broken down into the district heating regime and the heat pump regime.
The project aims, through interdisciplinary action research, to develop, test and demonstrate ways in which various forms of cooperation between property owners, residents and others can work together to reduce energy and other resource use in a residential area. The projects aim is to create inspiring and repeatable examples for how resource efficiency can be achieved within a neighbourhood by involving and activating the people who live and/or work there.
