An analysis on the readiness of EU countries to transition to smart buildings concludes that no Member State is fully prepared to take advantage of the benefits that smart building technologies will entail.
This report, Enhancing Energy Efficiency in China: Assessment of Sectoral Potentials, uses energy and economic models to assess the potential for further energy-efficient improvements in the transport, building, industry and power sectors. The report starts with a modelling assessment of the role of energy efficiency in supporting China to achieve its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) of reaching a peak in its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by around 2030.
The main objective of the proposed revision of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) which the European Commission released on the 30th November 2016 “is to accelerate the cost effective renovation of existing buildings.
This report, Enhancing Energy efficiency in India: Assessment of sectoral potentials, presents a model based assessment of the potential for improvements in energy efficiency in key sectors of the Indian economy. It also identifies a set of short, medium and long term High Impact Opportunities for energy efficiency, which in combination with various technological options and policies, have potential to provide required future energy services much more efficiently.
This report, High Impact Opportunities for Energy Efficiency in China, presents six High Impact Opportunities (HIOs) for improvements to energy efficiency in China in the transport, building, industry and power sectors. These HIOs have been selected from the long list of HIOs identified with economic and energy modelling by the same expert team in the report, Enhancing Energy Efficiency in China: Assessment of Sectoral Potentials.
