Energy use in buildings

Energy use in buildings

greener buildings
Greener buildings
  • Buildings account for 40% of all energy use in Europe – more than transport or industry
  • Better design, more efficient lighting, heating, cooling and hot-water systems reduce energy use
  • Integrating low energy consumption into building standards helps environment and saves household/ business costs
  • Actors – local communities, designers, builders, owners and tenants

Energy use in buildings

eu actions
EU actions
  • Legislation

Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD – 2002/91/EC)

Boiler Directive (89/106/EEC)

SAVE Directive (93/76/EEC)

Construction Products Directive (89/106/EEC)

  • The Intelligent Energy Europe programme

Funding tool for energy efficiency and renewable energy

  • EPBD buildings platform

Information on the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive


Helps local communities become more self-sufficient and efficient with energy

Energy use in buildings

opportunities for smes
Opportunities for SMEs
  • Efficiency criteria for buildings and products used in heating, lighting and cooling
  • Sustainable construction technology creates market and job opportunities
  • More energy-efficient buildings = large cost savings
  • Indirect benefit – company’s image as environmentally responsible

Energy use in buildings

information for public authorities 1
Information for public authorities (1)
  • Aims EPBD – improve buildings’ energy performances and integrate energy efficiency into urban planning
  • Buildings classified by type, size and use
  • National authorities define certification bodies
  • Common method to measure energy performance

Energy use in buildings


Information for public authorities (2)

  • Energy efficiency standards for renovations of buildings >1,000m2
  • Improving energy performance of social housing
  • Raising public awareness
  • Thermal imaging techniques measure heat loss – implications for urban development

Energy use in buildings

good practice 1 efficient urban renewal european green cities 2005
Good practice 1: efficient urban renewalEuropean Green Cities (2005)
  • Aims to hurdle traditional barriers to energy efficiency technologies – perceived higher costs, lack of knowledge
  • Common model for sustainable building for varying conditions
  • Work with contractors on price calculations, train city authorities, builders and consultants, standards for energy efficiency
  • 1,000 energy-efficient homes in nine countries
  • Details:

Energy use in buildings

public and building owners
Public and building owners
  • EPBD – all buildings >50m2 need energy performance certificate when built, sold or rented
  • Priorities – lighting, passive heating and cooling, biomass and other renewables
  • EU rules require regular inspections for boilers and air-conditioning systems
  • Information on buildings’ energy performances for tenants/ buyers

Energy use in buildings

good practice 2 calderdale and kirklees energy savers cakes 2004
Good practice 2: Calderdale and Kirklees Energy Savers - CAKES (2004)
  • ‘CAKES’ project West Yorkshire (UK)
  • ‘One-stop shop’ for public – advice on home improvements, discount prices, loans
  • Network of approved installers
  • Finance from local credit unions
  • Results: 1,500 homes improved, 35,000 tonnes of CO2 savedper year, average energy bills cut by €300
  • Details:
