This thesis develops a methodological framework for analysis of the energy situation of households in Greece. This research is based on a study conducted by the Laboratory of steam-generating and heating facilities in the School of Mechanical Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens in cooperation with the Research Contact GPO S .A. The Purpose of this study is to estimate the carbon footprint of the Greek households. This is because households in the developed countries consume 40% of the total energy, causing the high emissions of CO2 in the atmosphere. Initially, the situation of the environment and the role of CO2 in the global warming are presented. Next, the concept of carbon footprint and its estimation is presented. Moreover, the energy situation in Europe and Greece for the residential sector is discussed. Finally, the methodology of estimating the carbon footprint of Greek households is developed.
