An important goal of public policy to stimulate transition to a sustainable energy system is to improve energy efficiency –a target clearly set out in Sustainable Development Goal 7.   Indeed, improving energy efficiency is one of the most cost-effective options for meeting growing energy demand, ensuring more rational use of energy, securing economic well-being and improved quality of life, and contributing to a better environment and to energy security in most countries.

Concept:   Vulnerable communities are severely affected by natural disasters. A model for the estimation of the impact of disasters and for planning mitigation policies is essential.   The EU-funded MulHaRes project will develop a decision model to support multi-hazard resistance of residential buildings to floods and landslides provoked by heavy rainfalls.

  Concept and objectives:   For the construction sector, and more globally for Non-Road Mobile Machineries, electrification is a major stake, as most of construction equipment is working with diesel engines and presents a lot of drawbacks that will not be acceptable anymore in the future: Air pollution, Emission of CO2, Noise

  Concept: The EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive requires all new buildings to be nearly zero-energy by the end of 2020. Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) is crucial for the decarbonisation of the building stock in Europe.   The technology integrates solar elements into buildings to generate electricity.

Effective and ambitious policies are urgently needed to unlock the widespread benefits offered by using renewable energy in buildings and industry, as fossil fuels persist as the main fuel for heating and cooling, releasing harmful particulates, worsening air pollution and contributing to greenhouse gas emissions.   With this pressing need in mind, IRENA, IEA and REN21 have joined forces again to produce a report on the status and developments of policies for renewable heating and cooling.

Throughout the world architects are designing green buildings, whether it’s in their sustainable construction, environmentally friendly operation or actually green by style. It’s broadly titled biophilia, connecting people with nature, and it can lead to some creative and innovative designs.   But now we are finding that literally greening the world — by covering building walls and roofs with vegetation — can also come with some unexpected problems.

Image: Eurac Research  Surface area is an important but limited resource in cities that aim to become climate neutral. It can be used to, for example, generate heat or electricity via active solar systems, improve air quality via greening, or provide cooling thanks to highly reflective and emissive materials.
