citat The applicability of individual metering and charging (IMC) of heat and hot water is affected by lack of cost-efficiency and other significant shortcomings. While the main incentive for IMC is to save energy and thereby the environment, landlords are reluctant to introduce IMC because it is not cost-efficient. Most residents are positive to the basic idea of IMC, which is that the users pay only for their own consumption, but the shortcomings of IMC of heat affect the residents’ attitudes negatively. In energy-efficient buildings the shortcomings become especially significant. IMC has disadvantages, and only gives a marginal saving in costs, so IMC of heat is not being recommended in energyefficient buildings. IMC of hot water does have savings potential, so it can be a useful tool in helping to achieve the European Union’s goal of nearly zero-energy buildings. However, IMC of hot water has also disadvantages, and measurement of water volume along with temperature should be considered. citat
