Résumé partiel
The purpose of this research is to investigate energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions from the residential sector in Dubai. Also, to find out the influence factors on the energy consumption for the residential buildings. The investigated residences were located in eight different locations along the Emirate of Dubai. Questionnaire survey methodology is to be used for this investigation and the questionnaire survey is structured in a way that is to be used as data for the household profile in Dubai in particular and in UAE in general. It’s revealed building characteristics and household characteristics in the energy use in addition to the influence of households’ lifestyle on energy consumption. The questionnaire also covered white goods items, home entertainment items, computer and peripheral items, air-conditioners, and lighting. More than 200 hard copy questionnaires were distributed to the selected area, in addition to the electronic copy distributed to relatives, friends, Colleagues, and others. Questionnaire results were based on surveys of 95 households for different types of residences ; villas, detached houses, Arabic houses, and apartments in different locations. The research result outlines the key drivers that impacts on energy consumption. According to the results ; Major electricity-consuming items were air-conditioners, lighting, and refrigerators. Furthermore, consumers’ behavior is the most important issue of energy consumption. This impacts of that energy which is particularly fossil-fuel-generated electricity on carbon released to the atmosphere. The dissection report ends with a section for recommendation of efforts, such as detailed survey, policy and regulation, intended to influence building energy use. Recommended courses of action from BUID to the residential leaders, students. The holistic and integrated approach to the research objective, guided by Systems thinking and ecological design, capacities actors at three different levels to pro-Actively implement end-use energy efficiency.
