Climate friendly Tenants : Potential for tenants to reduce energy consumption in an office building in a climate manner (English)
Abstract [en]

The starting point for this master thesis was the product of the company "Humlegården", which allows its tenants in office buildings to follow their electricity consumption in real time, through their Smartphone's. The idea that resulted from that application is to investigate if it is possible to direct the tenants in office buildings to reduce their energy consumptions, but also to be satisfied with the indoor environment. This work addresses the factors which are the main energy consumers in office buildings. It addresses legal requirements and standards which are important to follow in order to achieve good thermal comfort in buildings. Some of them are physical climate factors like thermal environment, air quality and lightning. Investigation has also been made on psychological, physiological and social factors which are important for human’s thermal perception. Even monitoring methods for energy and comfort have been discussed as well as methods that are used to ensure the thermal perception of human beings. Through literature studies that have been carried out in the past, especially those who determine the connection between physical and psycho-social elements, a simple suggestion has been made. The suggestion is based on indoor and outdoor temperature, that should direct the tenant to allow in some cases lower indoor temperature which will lead to minimized energy consumption.
