National Building specific Information

The project genrates basic data for authorities about the Swedish building stock by merging and analyzing all complete building specific registers kept by Swedish authorities. Specifically we compare Energy Performance Certificates from 2008 and from 2018 with other registers to explain the development in the housing sector.
