This report describes the analysis of data on hot water consumption collected in approximately 120 houses. The project had four key goals: to measure volumetric consumption of DHW and the associated energy requirement; to identify DHW heating patterns in terms of both times and temperatures; to compare these results with the current BREDEM assumptions, and finally to identify where in the dwelling water is being consumed.
