IEA Annex VIII Report, 1988, 3 vols.

Annex VIII is a two year task sharing project, started offically in 1984. Although some research had already been done on the problem of inhabitant's behaviour with regard to ventilation, none had gone so far as to access whether and how the ventilation behaviour can be modified in order to save energy and by taking into account the conflicting requirements, energy conservation and adequate indoor air quality. The main objectives of this annex were: 1) to determine the actual behaviour of the inhabitants and tocorrelate it to the outdoor and indoor climate 2) to estimate the amount of energy losses due to this behaviour 3) To study the inhabitants relevant behaviour motivation 4) To study whether such behaviour can be modified and to estimate the amount of energy savings which might result therefrom.
