Utrecht/London/Cologne – 2 November 2016 - The building sector accounts for around 20% of climate-changing emissions, and its energy demand is likely to double by mid-century without action, according to a Climate Action Tracker (CAT) analysis released today.

House size has significantly increased over the recent decades in many countries. Larger houses often have a higher life cycle energy demand due to their increased use of materials and larger area to heat, cool and light. Yet, most energy efficiency regulations for buildings fail to adequately include requirements for addressing the energy demand associated with house size. This study quantifies the effect of house size on life cycle energy demand in order to inform future regulations.

This report, prepared within the framework of the Solar Heating and Cooling Programme (SHC) of the International Energy Agency (IEA), presents solar thermal market data from 61 countries covering an estimated 95% of the worldwide market (the remaining 5%of the market were extrapolated and are labelled as “all other countries”). These data were collected from a survey of the national delegates of the IEA SHC Programme’s Executive Committee and other national experts active in the field of solar thermal energy.

On June 28, 2016, the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) launched a new project aiming to ensure that all buildings are “net zero” by 2050.
The project involves eight green building councils from Australia, Brazil, Canada, German, India, the Netherlands, South Africa and Sweden initially, and Architecture 2030 as lead partner to provide technical expertise.

Energy efficiency regulations for buildings often focus solely on operational and thermal energy demands. Increasing a building׳s thermal energy efficiency is most often undertaken by increasing insulation thickness and installing high performance windows. These measures can result in a significant increase in embodied energy which is currently not considered in the majority of existing building energy regulations.
