Abstract

How is the composition of the final energy consumption of private households for heating? Is there a portion which is influenced by user behavior, and can this portion be captured with suitable equipment? Is it possible to reduce this portion by applying appropriate auxiliary devices (assistance systems)? What is the potential in different types of buildings, which how much can be saved in this way?
