More energy efficient buildings can

...reduce CO2 emissions considerably

...reduce dependency on fossil fuels

...create thousands of jobs

slide3

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

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

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!

slide7

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

slide8

But... market forces need help

  • Barriers:
  • Low priority
  • Lack of knowledge
  • Funding
  • Low quality of craftsmen
  • and contractors’ work
  • Owner/tenant dilemma
slide9

Substantial energy modernisation will create jobs

  • Construction workers
  • Architects
  • Engineers
  • Building materials industry
political leadership needed
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
the fight against climate change starts at home thank you
