Die Studie beschäftigt sich damit, welche Einsparungen durch energieeffiziente Wohnhäuser in der Praxis tatsächlich erreichbar sind. Dafür wurden die Verbrauchskennwerte energetisch sanierter und neuer Ein- und Mehrfamilienhäuser ausgewertet. Die 121 untersuchten Effizienzhäuser umfassen 50 neue Ein- und Zweifamilienhäuser, 7 neue Mehrfamilienhäuser, 46 energetisch sanierte Ein- und Zweifamilienhäuser und 18 energetisch sanierte Mehrfamilienhäuser. Alle Häuser haben eine gedämmte Gebäudehülle und eine effiziente Anlagentechnik.

Lo scenario presentato dal gruppo di ricercatori dell'associazione francese NegaWatt conclude che con azioni e tecnologie rivolte alla sufficienza (utilizzare energia solo ove questa fornisce servizi significativi, scegliere modalità a bassa energia) ed efficienza (ridurre la quantità di energia richiesta a parità di risultato) è possibile ridurre del 50% i consumi della Francia entro il 2050. ​E coprire il restante 50% completamente con fonti rinnovabili.
