This article deals with the ENERBUILD publication on user habits, impact on energy consumption in passive houses. It is an output from the ENERBUILD project.


This publication describes the result of monitoring of Passive houses in 6 Alpine space regions. The study was commissioned by the project partner EURAC and provides an overview on energy consumption and living comfort of actual best practice buildings with the objective to examine problems of existing constructions, to evaluate the problem areas and derive solutions and expertise by collecting empirical values. The results can be used as support for impulses for the Alpine region enterprises dealing with energy efficiency in buildings and can help developers and technology suppliers by giving inputs for discussion and orientation on energy efficient buildings. The documented positive experiences of inhabitants are suitable for advertising and foster high energy efficient buildings in the Alpine Space.
