The definitions of concepts like efficiency improvement and energysavings, applied to electricity consumption by households, are discussed. There is often confusion concerning the meaning of these concepts, due to incomplete definitions and inaccurate use of these definitions. The factors determining the electricity consumption by households are discussed in detail and it is discussed how these factors should be treated when defining efficiency improvements and energy savings. The importance of clear definitions of energy services and system boundaries are illustrated. Some of the definitions proposed are translated into mathematical formulas, making numerical illustrations possible. 13 refs.
