Co-Evolution of Standards in Innovation Systems

This book addresses the phenomenon of coevolution of standards in residential built environments. It develops a feedback-rich simulation model of the revelatory case of the Swiss residential built environment, first, in order to explain the historical coevolution of standards in this system and, second, to analyze the effects of different administrative polices on energy demand, improvements of energy efficiency in building codes, and estimating reductions in the Swiss green-house gas emissions until 2050.

„A valuable frameworks for researchers and decision makers to assess the adequacy of models and validity of analyses of complex dynamic systems such as the one that determines the energy efficiency of buildings.“ (Professor Henry B. Weil)
