The aim of the study was to create and administer a questionnaire to collect data and obtain typical occupancy profiles of residential buildings. The survey was developed by considering previous experiences conducted in the University of Calabria since 2012, and it was distributed among 80 families via email, face-to-face and through social network. Different levels of occupancy (high, medium and low) and different sub-categories of high occupancy (morning, afternoon, and intermediate) were individuated by processing the gathered data. Buildings energy consumption was investigated with regard to occupancy categories, and correlations were found.

Abstract

The aim of the study was to create and administer a questionnaire to collect data and obtain typical occupancy profiles of residential buildings. The survey was developed by considering previous experiences conducted in the University of Calabria since 2012, and it was distributed among 80 families via email, face-to-face and through social network. Different levels of occupancy (high, medium and low) and different sub-categories of high occupancy (morning, afternoon, and intermediate) were individuated by processing the gathered data. Buildings energy consumption was investigated with regard to occupancy categories, and correlations were found.
