Heating, domestic hot water

What do occupants know really know and want from NZEBs?   The CoNZEBs team has compiled and conducted a survey in four countries (Germany, Denmark, Italy and Slovenia) to learn about the opinion of end-users in multi-family houses (NZEBs or other building energy performance levels) regarding:

European researchers are developing a device that stores and uses solar energy to provide both hot water and mechanical ventilation for multifamily houses. Moreover, an app linked to the machine monitors the users’ energy consumption   Nowadays households wanting to switch to solar energy have to deal with variability over time. In addition, if they are part of a condominium, the ability to store solar energy in an apartment without taking up significant living space is a big issue.
