Except for lighting purposes residential electricity consumption is closely related to the volume, quality and utilization of the domestic appliance stock. Given the intended construction of a lifestyle-oriented residential energy model it was worthwile to investigate whether the ownership of domestic appliances could be endogenized in a model system. This report discusses and illustrates the application of discrete choice models. Both econometric and applicatory aspects are dealt with.

Finally, some attention is paid to alternative approaches, in particular diffusion models.
