Training and education

As building envelopes and mechanical and electrical equipment become more efficient, the impact of occupants on building energy increases.   Meanwhile, trends in teleworking, co-working and home-sharing mean vastly different occupancy than the standard occupancy schedules.

Inducing a behavioral change towards Energy Efficiency represents an unsolved societal challenge with potentially enormous environmental impact, but it is still difficult to get people to adopt a more energy-efficient lifestyle due to several factors:   -low monetary benefits for the individuals (an average energy bill does not represent a significant portion of the home budget)

The purpose of this application note is to define a generic methodology based on practical experience and existing standards to make robust, ex-ante assessments of energy conservation measures (ECM) in buildings. The focus is on the potential energy and cost savings of medium-sized ECMs with a typical incremental investment cost of between €100k and €1 million. Most of the specified methodologies can also be applied to ECMs in other fields, such as at industrial sites.
