Abstract: © 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. In this paper, the specific consumption of the heat energy supplied by three most utilized heating systems (district heating, gas and electricity system) in the residential sector of the city of Kragujevac (Serbia) is analysed. Required data are provided by combining data from local utility companies with national census results. Comparison of present tariff systems shows that consumers in the residential buildings are the most motivated for energy savings if they use electricity or gas as energy source. The specific energy consumption in district heating system shows relatively high quantities, primarily as a consequence of dominant unmotivating tariff payment system. The average heat consumption from gas and electricity sources relatively fits to EU average, but the electricity consumption of the electric heaters is not acceptable in long term. Low electricity price in Serbia and high price of unit of energy from district heating system of the city of Kragujevac (and Serbia) will lead to an increase of electric energy consumption which will cause additional problems related to covering of that consumption from domestic energy sources.
