The study was conducted on the faculty apartments in theIIIT-Delhi campus, India from the year 2014. The significant features were identified usingregression analysis on the data. Interaction effects between the features that impact theenergy consumption was also studied. So from our analysis, we have found out that floorlevel, orientation, family size, the presence of a working couple are having a significantimpact on the energy consumption patterns of the household.
