Deviations from the fulfillment of Energy Efficiency (EE) targets are attributed mainly to barriers created by the behavioral patterns of end-users. The methodology, based on the Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP), concerns the calculation and interlinkage of the total impact factors of behavioral barriers demonstrated by end-users with the input drivers in the EE modeling. Two sets of behavioral barriers for buildings and transport are provided. Comments, advantages and disadvantages are discussed in the conclusions.
