This paper has the main focus in energy consumption by the residential sector in city of Prishtina. Considering the fact that the energy production in Kosovo is not sufficient in relation with the everyday demand and at the same time the growth of the energy demand based on different resources is evident, a detailed analysis and identification of the energy performance of this sector is inevitable. One of the main components that cause the energy demand in residential sector is the heating energy demand. The energy resource and heating systems used by the residential sector in city of Prishtina are diverse.

This paper elaborates and identifies the number of residential buildings, number of dwellings, building typologies, heating energy resources, heating systems used by the dwellings and the energy demand for heating energy, by using quantitative methodology. Based on the results achieved by the research, future detailed analysis is possible to identify other components, which affect the heating energy demand by the residential sector. These first results can be used as a basis of the first district scaled energy modeling of the city of Pristhina. By applying the energy management method, developed by Prof. Gerhard Hausladen and his research group at the TU München, a first modeling step will be absolved. After analysis of the current state of the investigated districts, future concepts will be made increasing efficiency and sustainability.
