More energy efficient buildings can

...reduce CO2 emissions considerably

...reduce dependency on fossil fuels

...create thousands of jobs

Slide3 l.jpg

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 CO in hot and cold climates 2 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

How to improve energy in hot and cold climates efficiency in buildings

Newbuild

Renovation


Newbuild how low can we go l.jpg
Newbuild: How low can we go? in hot and cold climates

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

Renovation: Energy modernisation in hot and cold climates

  • 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 l.jpg

But... in hot and cold climates market forces need help

  • Barriers:

  • Low priority

  • Lack of knowledge

  • Funding

  • Low quality of craftsmen

  • and contractors’ work

  • Owner/tenant dilemma


Slide9 l.jpg

Substantial energy modernisation in hot and cold climates will create jobs

  • Construction workers

  • Architects

  • Engineers

  • Building materials industry


Political leadership needed l.jpg

Strengthen energy requirements considerably in hot and cold climates

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 l.jpg
