Share this Post:
The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) has published end of April 2009 the final report of their Efficiency in Buildings research project. The report is based on a simulation model that comes together with a roadmap for the necessary transformations of the building sector in order to meet the global climate change targets. The main message is that the energy use in buildings can be cut by 60 % by 2050 but this needs immediate action now. The report focuses on the demand side of buildings with energy sources and energy mix such as district heating and cooling being outside of the scope.
