The research project deals with investigations of the relationship between different forms of teleworking and the overall energy efficiency in society. In recent years, new forms of work have clearly led to an increase in energy consumption. However, through consistent structural changes in the physical and virtual infrastructure of society (buildings, transport and IT systems) there is a potential to increase the overall energy efficiency of society by using these new parameters. In the investigations carried out in this research project, the energy structures of typical service companies, consisting of residential and office buildings, transport systems and IT systems were mapped and potentials for increasing efficiency were evaluated. External experts in the fields of sociology, transport and IT were involved.
