Households are responsible for 30 % of the total energy consumption in Europe despite of the upgrading of buildings undertaken during the last decades in order to improve energy performance. For buildings, there is still an energy reduction potential of up to 30 %, which can be materialized partly by behavioral changes among residents without reducing comfort levels.
The beneficiaries should be tenants and residents. Together with several institutional partners, both private and public, best practice examples for energy services will be promoted through actors’ workshops, in-house workshops at companies, lectures, publications and a manual.
