  1. Climate-Energy-JobsHow do we reap the huge potential in energy wasting buildings? Kim Carstensen Leader, WWF’s Global Climate Initiative Eelco van Heel Board member, European Insulation Manufacturers’ Association (EURIMA) CEO, the Rockwool Group Jens Laustsen Senior energy policy analyst (buildings), the International Energy Agency (IEA)

  2. Climate More energy efficient buildings can ...reduce CO2 emissions considerably ...reduce dependency on fossil fuels ...create thousands of jobs Energy Jobs

  3. More energy efficient buildings are needed – both in hot and cold climates • Poorly insulated buildings inflate the need for heating when cold – and cooling when hot • In 2030, 70% of the world’s population (6 billion) will live in urban areas • In 2030, CO2 emissions from • buildings up 50%, due to a.o. • increased use of air conditioning • in the East and the US 3

  4. Buildings are the biggest energy consumer and a major CO2 polluter 33% of all energy in EU is used for transport 26% of all energy in EU is used by industry 41% of all energy in EU is used in buildings 2/3 of energy consumption in buildings is used for heating, cooling and ventilation

  5. How to improve energy efficiency in buildings Newbuild Renovation

  6. Newbuild: How low can we go? It is easy with existing and proven technology to build houses that use 80% less energy than today’s average house! kWh/m2/year for heating Sources: EU Commission, DK building regulations and www.passivhaus.de

  7. Renovation: Energy modernisation • Potential in the EU alone: • 460 Mt CO2 per year = Italy’s annual emmissions • €270 billion in energy costs • 500,000 jobs • New legislation (EPBD2) tightens energy requirements Sources: Ecofys, EURIMA

  8. But... market forces need help • Barriers: • Low priority • Lack of knowledge • Funding • Low quality of craftsmen • and contractors’ work • Owner/tenant dilemma

  9. Substantial energy modernisation will create jobs • Construction workers • Architects • Engineers • Building materials industry

  10. Strengthen energy requirements considerably Make very-low energy homes the standard choice (passive house levels mandatory in new UK buildings from 2013) Stimulus packages targeted at energy renovations Always make building renovations energy efficient Make public buildings energy efficient role models Political leadership needed

  11. The fight against climate change starts at home...Thank you! Eelco van Heel, Board member, European Insulation Manufacturers’ Association (EURIMA) CEO, Rockwool International A/S
