Event Title

Assessment of heating energy consumption and resources by the residential sector in city of Prishtina

Session

Architecture and Spatial Planning

Description

Heating energy consumption and main heating energy resources are currently global challenges which are closely being treated. Kosovo as a future potential EU member is in front of an energy challenge in terms of consumption and efficient use of it. To elaborate and start first steps of creating national approach towards more efficient use of energy, it is crucial to asses and to infer the current situation of energy consumption and resources, especially heating energy consumption.

Therefore, development of a database with detailed data gathered on the field, to create an overall “picture” of current energy consumption and resources used for heating by the residential sector. The main focus of this research paper is to identify the main heating energy resources used by the residential sector in city of Prishtina, the heated net floor space area in dwellings and user satisfaction based on heating quality within households. Completion of the detailed database with all needed data, is achieved by a survey which was conducted widely throughout city of Prishtina, covering the city’s urban area. Survey distribution throughout the city of Prishtina and separate neighbourhoods was one of the main challenges but yet the core of this investigation, in terms of result generation.

The research results will create a clear “picture” of energy resources used for heating by residential sector in general and in specific neighbourhoods in city of Prishtina, application of thermal insulation, types of windows and percentage of heated area within a household. All generated data within the research will be used, also as basis for further research for more detailed calculations (dynamic building energy and climate simulations) of energy consumption by households. More empirical and measurable results may be generated in future using the results of this research.
