Abstract

In the UK, over 40% of energy consumption is building related. The energy used in homes alone is
responsible for more than a quarter of CO2 emissions. CO2 is the main greenhouse gas and the most
significant cause of climate change. Most of the energy used in homes is produced using processes that
release CO2 into the air. Studies have found that a building’s energy use for space heating is
significantly influenced by occupant’s behaviour such as the opening of windows and the selected
thermostat setting. This influence is greater in energy efficient dwellings designed for low energy use.
The aim of this paper is to facilitate a better understanding of how occupant behaviour may effect
ventilation within Passivhaus buildings in particular.
