Buildings account for more than 70% of U.S. electricity use, and a comparable share of power sector CO2 emissions. Improving the way electricity is consumed and reducing the overall amount of electricity consumed in buildings would significantly reduce energy costs to consumers and facilitate the transition to a decarbonized economy.   Overview of the roadmap:

Building sector accounts a significant percentage of total global energy-related CO2 emissions. Energy is consumed at different buildings’ lifecycle and can be analysed from different perspectives or scales. That means that competitive solutions should be found in the building sector to revolutionise energy efficiency and management in buildings.
