Household energy practices in low energy buildings

Low energy buildings are designed to reduce energy demand but assume household energy users who are motivated, knowledgeable and capable of managing complex thermostatic systems in order to regulate comfort. This aim of this project has been to explore how residents in a low-energy building cooperative in Oslo adjust comfort levels and regulate thermostats. The results will form a basis for further exploration of household-technology interactions in ‘smart’ buildings.
