IEA - International Energy Agency

While carbon dioxide emissions in non-Annex I countries continued to grow in 2009 (+3.3%), emissions of Annex I countries fell sharply (-6.5%), according to a new publication from the International Energy Agency. Most of the reduction, however, comes from a decrease in the energy consumption due to the 2008-2009 economic crisis.

Nullenergiehaus, Plusenergiehaus, Nullemissionsstadt oder im internationalen Sprachraum auch net zero energy building, equilibrium building, carbon neutral city sind die Bezeichnungen für Gebäude, die in der Jahresbilanz mindestens eben so viel Energie erzeugen wie sie benötigen. Doch je nach Standpunkt und Motivation wird derzeit noch unterschiedlich bilanziert. So einfach das Vorgehen der Energiebilanzierung auf den ersten Blick erscheint, so komplex wird es im Detail.

Mr Tanaka (Executive Director of the International Energy Agency (IEA)) said at the Clean Energy Technologies Symposium on 2nd November 2010: “I am very pleased to be launching in Singapore today, the second of the IEA’s new ”Policy Pathway” series, Energy Performance Certification of Buildings. “Governments are missing a great opportunity to save energy in buildings. Energy efficiency can save energy and cut CO2 emissions at very little or no cost, but there remains a lot to be done if governments and industry are to capture these savings.

Presenting the new series today in Paris, IEA Executive Director Nobuo Tanaka said, “Governments are missing a great opportunity to save energy. Even the countries that are most proactive on energy efficiency have implemented less than 60% of the IEA energy efficiency recommendations! This shows that although clearly energy efficiency can save energy and CO2 emissions at very little or no cost, barriers remain for governments to put effective policies in place. The Policy Pathway series should help countries overcome these barriers”.

Presenting ETP 2010 in Washington DC, IEA Executive Director Nobuo Tanaka said “after sowing the seeds for such a revolution in our last edition in 2008 by demonstrating that greater reliance on low-carbon technologies can transform the way we produce and use energy, ETP 2010 now highlights the first ‘green shoots’ of what could become such a fundamental change.” But he emphasised that current developments are still fragmented and fragile, and the rate of progress is still far too low to prevent dangerous increases in global temperatures. Main messages:

"It is particularly appropriate to present the two solar roadmaps in Valencia today, given that Spain has taken a leading role globally in promoting solar power and other forms of renewable energy," said Mr. Tanaka.

The WEO 2009 sets out a timetable of actions needed to limit the long-term concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere to 450 parts per million of carbon-dioxide equivalent and to keep the global temperature rise to around 2 ° Celsius. Alongside its sombre warning that every year of delay in implementing these measures adds $500 billion to the energy sector’s mitigation costs, the IEA highlights there are cost-effective solutions to avoid severe climate change, while also enhancing energy security.
