Energy efficient behaviour in office buildings


Refurbishing and retrofitting of existing offices and energy efficient measures in new ones can help us save energy and decrease the emission of CO2 substantially. But follow-ups of energy-use in offices often show that it is dramatically higher comp. with predicted use.

The in reasons for these deviations are: wrong combination of building and installation technology; misinterpretation of operational staff; misunderstanding and energy inefficient behaviour of the office users. EBOB will create new techno and socio-economic solutions to make energy efficient behaviour natural easy and intuitively understandable for the end-users in refurbished and new offices. This will be achieved by starting from the human perspective and use available and new technology (including IT, smart control, user interfacing). The results gained due to this combined approach we call forgiving techno.
