Efficiency measures at the building envelope and the building services systems decrease the operational costs of buildings. But reduced costs can lead to changes in the behaviour of the building users. They consume more energy and parts of the originally planned energy savings are used-up. The so-called “rebound effect” describes the difference between the theoretically expected savings and the savings achieved in reality. The rebound effect can be indicated as percentage of the deviation from the expected savings.
