General on energy efficiency in buildings

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

This guide from the United Kingdom, which has been jointly produced by the NHBC Foundation and the Zero Carbon Hub, brings together the experiences of those who have already got to grips with airtightness for the benefit of designers and builders who have not. It identifies the common air leakage paths in typical constructions and provides practical advice on how these can be addressed. It stresses the importance of designing in an air barrier and ensuring that its integrity is maintained throughout the construction phase.

“The energy efficiency programs in these proposals would create jobs because energy efficiency improvements are labor intensive and net job creators. These programs would produce more construction and service-sector jobs than those energy sector jobs lost from reduced energy consumption,” said Steven Nadel, ACEEE Executive Director. “In addition, these programs would continue creating small numbers of jobs even after the stimulus period is over, because energy bill savings enable consumers and businesses to spend that money elsewhere in the economy.”

Proposals for the new climate change planning policy will ensure new developments are built in the right places, utilising sustainable sources of energy and encouraging the installation of electric car charging points. To help councils, Mr Healey has today granted nearly £10m to boost their expertise as "green champions", updating the tools and know-how they need to develop sustainable housing and energy sources for their areas.

The projects, which were competitively selected through the State Energy Program, represent the program's second round of funding that will total $74 million. Additional awards are expected to be made before the end of the year. Measures funded include installation of lighting and lighting controls, heating, cooling and controls, building envelope, photovoltaic systems, high efficiency biomass boilers, solar thermal, small wind generators and alternative-fuel refueling stations and vehicles.

Fiche de synthèse sur la situation actuelle des réseaux de chaleur (chauffage urbain) en France.

La France a pour objectif de produire annuellement 20 millions de tonnes équivalent pétrole supplémentaires d’énergie renouvelable d’ici 2020. La chaleur renouvelable distribuée par réseau de chaleur représente un huitième de cet objectif. Le développement des réseaux de chaleur est en effet le seul moyen de mobiliser massivement d’importants gisements d’énergies renouvelables tels que la biomasse, la géothermie profonde, ainsi que les énergies de récupération issues du traitement des déchets ou de l’industrie.
