Since the Great East Japan Earthquake, although it has been required to introduce renewable energy and save energy in houses, the supply and demand of electric power remains an important issue. This study s purpose is to verify the effectiveness of combined power generation using photovoltaic power generation (PV) and solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) by lifestyle. Focusing on understanding the impact of different lifestyles on energy consumption and the equipment capacity and power generation method to achieve a zero energy house (ZEH), we evaluated the equipment introduction effect and economic efficiency in multiple life patterns.
