The aim of this research is to explore the possibilities of using the information about energy consumption records in the new smart meters (that are increasingly being installed by energy companies in substitution of the traditional step counters) as reliable information for energy research of the residential building stock. A sample of 19 social housing dwellings in multifamily buildings in the outskirts of Madrid is being monitored by Proyecto HABITAres following the procedure described in (Alonso et al.,2017). Previously to the monitoring period, a survey has been conducted to the users of each dwelling to characterize energy sources, appliances, self-perception of comfort and habits of the occupants.
