Welcome to our first newsletter of 2017! In this issue, our guest writers reflect on the importance of trust for energy efficiency and the need to support low-carbon development in emerging countries as part of the Paris Agreement. We also feature an update on IPEEC’s Buildings Energy Efficiency Task Group (BEET), which has published a new international review of residential building energy efficiency rating schemes in IPEEC member countries. Finally, we present two sustainable energy events that took place in Berlin, Germany, which IPEEC attended. We hope you enjoy the read!
Building action through cooperation: IPEEC's Buildings Energy Efficiency Task Group
It is hard to overstate the importance of the buildings sector towards efforts to save energy. Buildings are responsible for over 30% of global final energy consumption and will account for even more as populations grow and developing countries obtain more purchasing power, with an estimated 50% rise in building energy demand by 2050.
