Abstract

The Authority for Electricity Regulation (AER) Oman is addressing the nationally important issue of energy efficiency in residential premises. Reducing energy use in Oman’s residential sector has the potential to reduce the cost of energy subsidies, the consumption of indigenous gas resources and the cost of constructing the infrastructure required to meet growing peak demand. Improving the efficiency of the residential stock may also create benefits for the Omani public through more comfortable living conditions and reduced energy costs. In order to deliver these benefits, it is first necessary to measure and evaluate the current state of the built stock to understand how energy is used. This is not a simple task because energy use at the residential level is driven by the complex interaction between the household’s demands for energy services, the building fabric and its systems. In recognition of this challenge, AER contracted PassivSystems (an innovative home energy management services company) and the Energy Institute, University College London (a world-leading centre of energy research) to carry out a
