Abstract

Reducing energy consumption in buildings of all kinds is a key challenge for researchers since it can help to notably reduce the waste of energy and its associated costs. However, when dealing with residential environments, there is a major problem; people comfort should not be altered, so it is necessary to look for smart methods which take into account this circumstance. Traditional techniques have not considered the study of human behavior when providing solutions in this field, but new human-centric paradigms are emerging gradually. We present our research on user behavior concerning electricity consumption in office buildings and residential environments. Our goal consists of inspiring practitioners in this field for developing new human-aware solutions.
