Energy Demand in the Residential and Tertiary Sector

  • Bertrand Chateau
  • Bruno Lapillonne
Part of the Topics in Energy book series (TENE)


What is really meant by the “residential and tertiary sector” is often ambiguous in energy studies. Although the “residential” part would seem a priori easy to define — it covers everything to do with the energy demand of households for their dwellings — it is in general poorly apprehended from a statistical point of view. The tertiary sector is far more vague both in its definition and its statistical coverage: it includes of course all so-called tertiary activities (administration, shops, offices, education), but also other sectors which have nothing in common with these latter, such as farming, handicrafts, and sometimes even the building and construction industry. Since we are dependent on energy statistics, we have had to abandon any attempt at a rigourous definition of the tertiary sector, which would be identical for all countries, and to accept the particular meaning given to this term in each of the countries we have studied.
