Work with Residents Heating and Hot Water


From the answers to this large survey, we may conclude that there is a strong interest from the tenants of European social housings to get qualified information on their energy consumption and an obvious need of advice on saving potential an saving measures that are possible for them. Social housing companies are considered by tenants as the appropriate actor to provide this king of information.
So, due to increasing electronic metering, the necessary information on energy consumption pattern on a monthly basis will be available to housing company, either already today or in the near future. This fact shall be used to develop a qualified information service for the tenants, using adequate information channels (paper, posters in the building entrances, letters and Internet tenant portal).


The survey can be used by all the targets.


The project output had been developed in a IEE SAVE project
