Buildings don’t use energy: People do. Do highly efficient homes really save energy? Counter-intuitively, dwellings that use less energy have low energy efficiency, and those with higher energy consumption have higher efficiency. Moreover, even accurate building energy simulation for multiple buildings could not predict the actual energy...

Indoor thermal comfort is generally assessed using the PMV or the adaptive model. This research presents the results obtained by in-situ real time measurements of thermal comfort and thermal comfort perception in 17 residential dwellings in the Netherlands. The study demonstrates the new possibilities offered by relatively cheap, sensor-rich...

Reducing energy consumption in the residential sector is an imperative EU goal until 2020. An important boundary condition in buildings is that energy savings shouldn’t be achieved at the expense of thermal comfort. There is, however, little known about comfort perception in residential buildings and its relation to the PMV theory. In this...
