Abstract

Nowadays energy consumption and especially energy saving are hot topics. The news about global warming has increased the need to save energy. In Finland, one of the major energy consumers is housing. The heating of residential buildings accounts for up to 68% of housing energy consumption. The second largest consumer of energy is heating water, at 15%. Therefore, it is not surprising that apartment energy consumption is a popular research topic in Finland. In particular, this study tries to find ways to increase energy
savings - without forgetting comfortable living. This paper introduces the results of a study exploring the research subjects of energy saving in the area of real estate and housing. The research methodology is a literature survey and primary articles were selected by means of a systematic literature review. This
study presents a way to categorize research papers with diverse themes. In addition, the survey reveals the most recent trends in research and practical applications of energy saving as well as efforts toward energy saving in the area of real estate and housing.
