Improved energy performance of buildings presents a win-win-win opportunity, reducing stress on the electricity network, offering bill savings, supporting a least-cost pathway to a zero carbon built environment, and improving health and resilience outcomes for households and businesses.

Reports
07 Mar 2018

The global buildings sector is responsible for 30% of final energy consumption and more than 55% of global electricity demand.

The content discussed how to go about developing policies that prioritised energy efficiency for building by consulting with key stakeholders. The purpose of the slides is to teach emerging professionals in the emerging economies about how targets and policies can be used in tandem to meet energy and development goals.

While governors across the US are setting innovative energy policies, energy efficiency can help them go even farther toward meeting state goals. This toolkit provides steps for governors to increase energy efficiency in homes, businesses, and transportation. It includes foundational policies, current state practices, and many useful resources for policy and program development.

Briefing paper

The 2018 State Energy Efficiency Scorecard, now in its 12th edition, ranks states on their policy and program efforts, not only assessing performance but also documenting best practices and recognizing leadership.

Report
25 Jan 2019

The buildings sector contributes nearly 40% to global energy-related annual GHG emissions (IEA/UNEP, 2018). Final energy demand from buildings is predicted to increase 50% by 2050 compared with 2015 levels under business as usual scenarios due to rapid urbanisation and the doubling of the built surface area.

To reach its goal of an 80% carbon reduction by 2050, New York City (NYC) must embrace a radical change to its buildings. The Passive House design’s performance-based standard ensures occupant comfort and very low energy use. It is a pathway for NYC to transform its building stock to reach a low-carbon future.

Conference paper
05 Aug 2016

In 2014, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) issued a FOA (Funding Opportunity Announcement) to conduct residential energy code field studies using a radically different methodology from previous studies. Historically, studies defined and measured “compliance” as the portion of all code requirements being met on a house-by-house basis.

Conference paper
03 Jan 2018

Buildings consume about two-thirds of the United States’ power supply and produce about 40 percent of carbon emissions. Buildings that are being constructed now will have a considerable impact on our region’s energy use 50 to 100 years from now. Thus, the built environment, including residential, commercial, and public structures, presents an opportunity to drastically reduce carbon emissions.

Report
13 Jul 2018

Residential and commercial buildings are among the largest users of energy in the United States, accounting for approximately 51 percent of all energy consumption in 2017. Because this represents such a significant portion of our energy use, policies have been put into place that govern the way buildings and homes use energy.
