Demand for space cooling is set to rise to 30% of buildings’ electricity demand by 2050 with nearly 70% of the increase coming from the residential sector (IEA, The Future of Cooling, 2018). In both developed and developing countries, such cooling demand will bring numerous benefits to the economy and our health, but will have profound impacts on the environment and power system unless we shift from business-as-usual technologies.
This webinar will take place June 4th from 12:00 to 13:15.
Se presenta un enfoque teórico para analizar los resultados alcanzados por las políticas energéticas,con estas distintas dimensiones: instrumentos, barreras específicas y condiciones de entorno o habilitantes. Al mismo tiempo, se presenta una metodología para analizar las condiciones habilitantes para la promoción de políticas públicas de eficiencia energética en el sector residencial. Finalmente, se realiza una aplicación para estudiar los casos de Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Colombia y Uruguay.
It was calculated that about 30% of the predicted global increase in energy demand will come from the Arab region. Further, the primary energy demand has increased by around 56% between 2005 and 2015 and is still increasing. The high subsidies have led to a great overconsumption resulting with 40% worse than global average in some of the lowest energy efficiency levels worldwide.
The linkages between water and energy consumption are significant. To produce energy, water is needed and, likewise, the provision and treatment of water requires the consumption of energy, in particular of electricity (ca. 60%). Reports and analysis demonstrated that the water sector is becoming more energy-intensive, while the energy sector is increasing its water-intensity.
