Energy costs have risen sharply in recent months and every household is feeling it. But what is the best way to reduce energy consumption in buildings? Many universities have been running research projects on this topic for some time now, dealing with a wide variety of issues. This webinar will present examples of how energy consumption data is handled in the projects and which data is relevant.
