Iranian Household Energy Use Alarming

Energy consumption in buildings is four times higher than that of the global average, an advisor to CEO of Iranian Fuel Conservation Organization said.
"The household sector in Iran consumes an equivalent of 1 million barrels of oil per day that is nearly eight times worse than the most energy-efficient countries," Hamed Houri Jafari was also quoted as saying by ISNA on Wednesday. 
Comparing energy consumption in different sectors in Iran with those of other countries, he noted that a large amount of energy is wasted in the household sector whereas the lion’s share of energy in developed countries is consumed in industries.
According to Jafari, who is also a faculty member of the Institute for International Energy Studies, the massive energy consumption is rooted in poorly insulated walls, age-old heating and cooling installations, and inefficient light bulbs.
