As of 1 September 2018 energy intensive and inefficient halogen lightbulbs will no longer be sold across the European Union. As a result of these rules, European consumers will be able to save on their household bills and, by addressing this at EU level, this will mean significant EU-wide energy savings – equivalent to the electricity consumption of Portugal over 5 years.

This report summarizes the highlights from the European Copper Institute's (ECI) inputs to the Interim Report and the Second Progress Report by the consortium on the Smart Readiness Indicator (SRI) for buildings. ECI welcomes the Commission’s effort to establish a comprehensive methodology, but has also some important recommendations to improve the current version of the methodology and prevent it from acting against the very purpose of the SRI.

This open-source tool helps users model the potential savings that a country could realise by a rapid transition to energy-efficient lighting. The model forecasts the electrical energy and carbon dioxide emission savings potential of efficient lighting regulations relative to a business-as-usual scenario. The model baseline is the estimated 2010 installed stock and energy consumption from the en.lighten Country Lighting Assessments.

To keep global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius, accelerating a radical shift to smarter energy use is crucial. Within the private sector the transition has already begun, yet it is not happening fast enough – and millions of dollars in energy savings remain untapped. Buildings are crucial targets for lowering emissions. They are what make up our rapidly expanding urban landscapes, their construction and architectural shape in turn shaping everyday human lives. Yet they also represent 32% of global energy consumption and a quarter of global human induced CO2 emissions.

There are many considerations when installing LED light systems and this can be daunting for procurers. Selecting quality products, a competent installer, using daylight to your advantage and optimal design are just some of the considerations.   Premium Light Pro has produced a comprehensive guide for installation of indoor lighting in the non-domestic sector.  At the heart of this lies the project's Procurement Criteria, which serves as a benchmark of high quality.

This report released by Copenhagen Economics and commissioned by the Swedish Energy Agency and the National Board of Housing, Building and Planning, aims to assess and quantify to what extent there are likely multiple benefits from energy related renovations of the Swedish building stock. Multiple benefits accrue in addition to the direct savings in energy bills and may entail health effects from better outdoor air quality and indoor environment.   The report finds that:
