Let's find out what % that 1700 is out of the total households of Germany, Switzerland, & Austria: Wiki Households by Nation
| Nation | Households |
| Germany | 40,076,000 |
| Switzerland | 3,362,073 |
| Austria | 3,566,489 |
| Total | 47,004,562 |
BUT, according to the article, 60% of heat demand is reduced in those 1700 households.
| 1700/47004562 | 3.616670228732266e-5 (...A REALLY small % of households researched) |

They've named the research the "Heizsolar" Project. "Heiz" is a short-form of "Heizen," which refers to heat/hotness Wiki 'Heiz'. I'll bet you get the "solar" part. What I don't get is if it seems repetitive in native Dutch/German.
Researchers get a little pat-on-the-back & got to work with buddies at a technical school.
I wonder what Mr. Stryi-Hipp's comment "over multiple heating periods" means: Is that several days? Weeks? Months? (I'm guessing days based on what follows...)
€1,500,000 in funding from a super-long-government-bureacracy-name-that-just-keeps-going-and-going-and-going, because... Federal Government YAY! /sarc
Increase the most expensive part? Like, the part that the article JUST stated was "expensive"? I guess it WOULD be good for grant money, home price inflation, and keeping those precious-mineral-miners in their miserable places.
Hopefully they'll get cheap ones from ebay? ebay solar collector
I'm kind-of sorry for the snarky tone of this piece, but seriously... I got into this article thinking it would be inspiring, full of ideas to optimize housing. Instead, it turned out to be a weak attempt at research and even weaker resulting suggestions. The "Benefit Tomorrow" is to NOT be tricked by lame research. If you would like to see some revolutionary housing & building, I encourage you to take a look at these following links:
