New IEA publication details how to capitalise on innovative technologies in building envelopes. Buildings use more energy than any other sector and therefore are a prime focus of efforts to save energy. This new IEA publication shows how improvements to the building envelope – the parts of a building that form the primary thermal barrier between interior and exterior – can cut the sector’s total consumption by almost 20%. Title of the publication: Technology Roadmap: Energy Efficient Building Envelopes was published in December, 2013.

For energy policy makers, business leaders, technology experts and academics, the International energy Agency's Energy Technology Perspectives 2014 (ETP 2014)
is a must-have to be able to make informed decisions about future energy technology strategies. This publication - which will now appear annually and focus on specific themes - presents new scenarios, critically dissects technical innovations and looks at which mix of technologies may help policy makers achieve their low-carbon goals.

Governments have decided collectively that the world needs to limit the average global temperature increase to no more than 2°C and international negotiations are engaged to that end. Yet any resulting agreement will not emerge before 2015 and new legal obligations will not begin before 2020. Meanwhile, despite many countries taking new actions, the world is drifting further and further from the track it needs to follow.

The World Energy Outlook (WEO) 2013,
will be released November 12th and covers the prospects for all energy sources, regions and sectors to 2035. Oil is analysed in-depth: resources, production, demand, refining and international trade. Energy efficiency – a major factor in the global energy balance – is treated in much the same way as conventional fuels: Its prospects and contribution are presented in a dedicated chapter. And the report examines the outlook for Brazil’s energy sector in detail and the implications for the global energy landscape.

Buildings are the largest consumers of energy worldwide and will continue to be a source of increasing energy demand in the future. Globally, the sector’s final energy consumption doubled between 1971 and 2010 to reach 2 794 million tonnes of oil equivalent (Mtoe), driven primarily by population increase and economic growth. Under current policies, the global energy demand of buildings is projected by the IEA experts to grow by an additional 838 Mtoe by 2035 compared to 2010.

Buildings are the largest energy consuming sector in the world and account for over one-third of total final energy consumption and an equally important source of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Achieving significant energy and emissions reduction in the buildings sector is a challenging but obtainable policy goal. This study provides informative insights on:- cost-effective options, key technologies and opportunities in the buildings sector;- solutions for reducing electricity demand growth and flattening peak demand;

ETP 2012 shows:
• Current progress on clean energy deployment, and what can be done to accelerate it
• How energy security and low carbon energy are linked
• How energy systems will become more complex in the future, why systems integration is beneficial and how it can be achieved
• How demand for heating and cooling will evolve dramatically and which solutions will satisfy it
• Why flexible electricity systems are increasingly important, and how a system with smarter grids, energy storage and flexible generation can work

In the short term, many of the reductions in emissions will come from improved energy efficiency, but there are new incentives and co-ordination which is also proposed in the report. The report also mentions how Nordic countries will need to build on current policies.Of particular relevance to BUILD UP is chapter 6 of the report titled ¨Buildings¨.
