Project Details

Description

UserTEC - User Practices, Technologies and Residential Energy Consumption, is a five years multidisciplinary research project supported by The Danish Council for Strategic Research. The project is based at Aalborg University and carried through in cooperation with University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, Linköping University, Delft University of Technology and Technical University of Denmark, as well as in cooperation with major Danish and international companies within the building and energy sector. The aim of the project is to use unique data to analyse in detail the everyday life practices of households in relation to energy consumption. Furthermore the aim is to use these insights to enhance communication on energy consumption between actors as well as to develop energy efficient building technologies and renovation processes that better respond to the way ordinary people actually live in their homes.
