IEA - International Energy Agency

ETP 2012 shows: • Current progress on clean energy deployment, and what can be done to accelerate it • How energy security and low carbon energy are linked • How energy systems will become more complex in the future, why systems integration is beneficial and how it can be achieved • How demand for heating and cooling will evolve dramatically and which solutions will satisfy it • Why flexible electricity systems are increasingly important, and how a system with smarter grids, energy storage and flexible generation can work

In the short term, many of the reductions in emissions will come from improved energy efficiency, but there are new incentives and co-ordination which is also proposed in the report. The report also mentions how Nordic countries will need to build on current policies.Of particular relevance to BUILD UP is chapter 6 of the report titled ¨Buildings¨.

Terms like "net zero energy", "zero net energy", "net zero carbon" or "EQuilibrium" buildings are in widespread use. But these terms have different meaning and are poorly understood, even though several IEA countries have adopted them as goal of their building energy policies.   IEA SHC project "Task 40" aims at filling this gap with a clear definition and international agreement on the measures of building performance that could inform "zero energy" building policies, programmes and industry adoption.

Renewable and natural energy sources, main components of sustainable energy systems, can only be made continuously available to users through thermal energy storage (TES). In addition to heating TES provides several flexible alternatives for cooling systems.
