Abstract
The oldest and largest building thermography consultant in Sweden, Riksbyggen, is also an innovative building developer and contractor. By using thermography not only on their own projects, but also offering a wide variety of thermographic services, Riksbyggen has probably acquired more experiences than any other single inspection unit in the world. As a response to the increasing need for a cost-efficient technique to make energy audits on existing buildings as well as to control the workmanship in retrofits made, Bengt Axen at Riksbyggen has developed a unique building inspection program that efficiently utilizes thermography without compromising the benefits of the technique. As an observer from the outside, the co-author, Dag Holmsten of AGA Corporation, has discussed improving inspection efficiency with Bengt Axen on several occasions and has met with the people invloved in the first test of the "Sundsvall model" in northern Sweden. He gives the institutional background to this new and very practical approach to energy auditing and shows the urgent need for such a technique with global applicability in order to avoid expensive misinvestments of energy conservation funds.
