Low energy buildings are key to reduce global energy use. However, achieving low energy use and good daylight levels simultaneously in dense cities is challenging. This article reviews relevant studies dealing with energy use and daylighting in dense residential urban blocks located in Nordic climates. The literature review combines a systematic and a ‘snowball’ search approach. Findings indicate that previous research relies heavily on parametric design as a tool. Few density metrics were found particularly relevant to describe the interplay between density, daylight, and energy use.
However, the limited body of research achieved so far in the Nordic climate makes it difficult to draw a clear conclusion, suggesting that additional research is required.
