Less than 2% of properties sold in Ireland between January 2017 and October 2018 were A rated – the highest energy efficient rating for homes – despite many technologies available to upgrade homes. And just 11% of dishwashers and 14% of fridges sold in 2018 in Spain were of the highest A+++ energy rating for appliances. The findings come from a project called CONSEED, which investigates what encourages people to buy energy efficient appliances, houses and cars.

This is the first block of housing certified in Spain built in 2017 under the Passivhaus standard, and therefore has a demand for heating below 15kWh / m2a, and a heating load of 10W / m2.
This implies that a floor of 75m2 will have a heating load of only 750W, so with a hair dryer there would be enough to heat two houses.
To achieve this the following principles have been applied:

Concept and Objectives:
Do European consumers pay attention to energy labels when they buy an electric appliance, a car or a house? What information are they looking for? How important is energy consumption in their decisions?
This is what the CONSEED research project aims to find out through surveys and field trials among households and various economic sectors across Europe.
