The decreasing energy consumption in residential buildings makes a revision of the reference values stated in energy consumption certificates necessary. An empirical analysis is supposed to evaluate in how far measured energy consumption is on average in line with the stated reference values, and because of which parameters systematic divergences occur. A possible primary energetic assessment based on consumption data is analysed in addition to the user-oriented (final energetic) assessment.
