EU and France organise an international conference on accelerating investments into buildings energy efficiency

On 11 December, the European Commission and the French Ministry of Ecological and Fair Transitions co-hosted an international conference on “Energy efficiency in buildings: How to accelerate investments” in Paris, France.

Buildings represent significant economic potential for energy efficiency. While the most developed economies need to accelerate the decarbonisation of their existing building stock, emerging economies must move towards the construction of zero emission, efficient and resilient buildings. To sufficiently increase investments into energy efficiency in buildings, private finance must to be mobilised. This in turn requires supportive policy frameworks at the national level. By bringing together financial institutions, policy makers and energy efficiency project developers, the event aimed to outline concrete solutions to the whole investment value chain.

Newsletter issue 20 - December 2017

Welcome to the final IPEEC Newsletter of 2017! We begin this issue by exploring energy productivity in the United States, China and Saudi Arabia with our guest authors, looking at the importance of productivity as a paradigm for framing energy efficiency. We then move on to buildings, where we dip into the newest report by the Buildings Energy Efficiency Task Group on regulations for the renovation of existing building stock. Finally we end the journey in Argentina, which became the G20 Presidency on 1 December. The Argentinian government has made fast strides on energy efficiency and is geared to play a key role in fostering energy efficiency action nationally and internationally in the coming year. We hope you enjoy the read and best wishes from the IPEEC team for a bright and efficient 2018!

Argentina makes fast strides on energy efficiency

Argentina has emerged as a regional advocate for energy efficiency over the past two years. It all began in late 2015, when Argentina’s newly elected President Mauricio Macri raised energy efficiency to a national priority and established the Under-Secretariat for Energy Savings and Energy Efficiency within the Ministry of Energy and Mines. Since then, the country has gone from strength to strength in developing and implementing energy efficiency policies. In this article, the IPEEC Newsletter takes a closer look at some of the country’s key domestic and international energy efficiency actions.
