REMODECE: Residential Monitoring to Decrease Energy Use and Carbon Emissions in Europe

Duration: 
January, 2006 to July, 2008
Funding: 
EC - Intelligent Energy Europe Programme

The project provides a contribution to an increased understanding of electricity consumption in the EU27 households for different types of equipment, including analysis of consumers' behaviour and comfort levels, and identifies demand trends. The project also assesses potential electricity savings in the residential sector in Europe and investigates to what extent they can be achieved using existing means. Special attention is given to stand-by consumption. To this end a combination of metering and surveying techniques is used.
