Abstract

Energy industries are a major contributor for greenhouse gas emissions. In addition to promoting cleaner electricity generation, increasing attention is paid to households' energy use. This paper investigates how different campaigns and regulations try to impact households' energy use and what kind of challenges such initiatives face. Furthermore, the paper presents how the different features (e.g. energy monitoring system, solar panels) of an apartment house designed to increase the sustainability of living are seen by the inhabitants.
