In my view, the biggest advantage of smart thermostats for tenants is that they give them the opportunity to do something themselves.

Energy savings scientifically confirmed

In the case study "Energieeinsparpotenzial (Bereich Wärme) für Mieter durch den Einsatz Smarter Heizkörperthermostate" (04/2023), the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) demonstrated average energy savings of 15.5% through the use of smart thermostats in tenant households. The study set-up neutralises the effects of the weather and assumed savings efforts as a result of high energy prices in the 2022-2023 heating period.

BaltBest study proves significant reduction in energy consumption at building level

The three-year BaltBest research project, funded by the Federal Ministry of Economics, comprehensively analyses 100 existing buildings in the housing industry. The result: an average increase in energy efficiency of around 15% and a peak increase of up to 30% is possible through the use of digital assistance systems for tenants. Around 80% of the residents of an apartment block can benefit significantly from this: The prerequisite identified by the study is the ease of use of the technology by tenants.

noventic study: the role of the tenant in climate protection in residential housing.

Climate protection in the building sector needs quick successes. A study commissioned by the noventic group on the role of tenants in climate protection shows that tenants are willing to make greater climate protection efforts within their own four walls, provided the cost, convenience and simplicity are right. To achieve rapid CO2 savings, the 1,000 tenant households surveyed showed a high level of acceptance of both the automation of heating and hot water supply and sharing of their own consumption data.
