This short document produced by the Institute for Energy Technology of the University of Malta, presents the results of a study undertaken to investigate the energy consumption of a duplex apartment, using, for that purpose, different energy auditing techniques.
In Malta, the domestic sector takes over 36% of the total energy consumption in the country. The highest demand rates are verified in summer due to space cooling.
This document, presented during the conference Eurosun 2008 in Lisbon, provides a better insight on the energy consumption of this specific apartment which can also help on drawing conclusions on the advantages of the use of solar water heating systems in the domestic sector in Malta.
