This thesis upholds a quantitative analysis from a business-economic perspective into the effect of alternative technical and financial solutions to the current policy of net metering, on the value of an investment in energy neutral dwelling renovations. By means of energy system simulation tool EnergyPRO and net present cost calculations it is determined that the economic benefits from EN renovations on the long term are highly dependent on the development of the price for natural gas, the initial investment and the interest rates for financing the investment. The effects of feed-in tariffs, tax reductions, higher electricity tariffs for natural gas consumers and smart control heat pumps are limited, and cannot provide with similar benefits as currently provided by the policy of net metering. This thesis recommends further study into the societal costs and development of investment based governmental incentive schemes that provide reductions on the initial investment and long term loan schemes with low interest rates.
