Abstract: In the present contribution we assume that it is principally possible-for a given building in a given context-to identify specific behavioral traits with positive or negative implications for a typical energy-relevant key performance indicators (KPI). We then consider varying compositions of a population of buildings' inhabitant in terms of the relative presence of such behavioral traits. Subsequently, the consequences of these differing compositions for the simulated values of the relevant KPIs are explored. The results exemplify the extent to which the relative presence of different behavioral tendency in the population of a building's occupants can influence KPI values.
