This report, submitted as deliverable 5.2 of the CHEETAH project, outlines the scenarios which we developed in the course of the CHEETAH project, reports the underlying assumptions and documents the results. The analysis presented in this report covers the energy consumption for space heating and domestic hot water preparation and is conducted using the Invert/EE-Lab model. With respect to technologies, we focus in this report on (a) smart thermostats, a technology that is covered by the survey and which has been implemented in the Invert/EE-Lab model within the CHEETAH project and (b) on the heating systems per energy carrier group and impact of energy savings triggered by building refurbishments.
The aim of this scenario-based analysis is to quantify the impact of household-specific importance of parameters influencing the decision, whether or not to invest in energy efficiency technologies. These parameters have been derived from a survey conducted in eight different European countries in work package 4 of this project and are documented in deliverable 4.4 as well as the Milestone 3 document. Furthermore, we are investigating the effect of additional restrictions and assumptions, which are part of the Invert/EE-Lab model, yet not covered by the survey.
