My research project deals with retrofitting of office buildings to achieve a nearly Zero Energy Building (nZEB) level for prevailing Nordic climatic condition. During my research the following subjects are studied:

- Indoor climate in office buildings equipped with low temperature heating solutions such as all air heating using CFD method.

- Optimization of office buildings energy performance and LCC in order to achieve nZEB level using IDA-ICE through Graphical script method coupled with CFD method for detail analysis of indoor climate at the same time.

- LCA analysis of nZEB
