Abstract [en]

In the early 1980’s, the Swedish government launched a homeimprovement programme (ROT), consisting of loans, grants and information to property owners for modernization of houses older than 30 years. The target was to modernize 425,000 homes during the period 1984–1993. It was a priority that ‘energy saving measures must be intensified’.

By studying how ROT was conceived and negotiated in regards to energy efficiency and historical values in buildings, this paper contributes to a better understanding of how housing policies may generate both risks and opportunities. The study reveals a conflict of interest between stakeholders. Discourses regarding the programme shifted widely between interest groups and over time. Initially, it was presented as a solution for unemployment in the building sector, and a social improvement for the poor and elderly. It was not until the late 1980’s that a discussion started on the consequences for historical values.
