Energy efficiency and renewable energies together constitute a major change factor in the transition towards sustainable energy. In the recent IEA scenarios these make up more than two-thirds of the required measures to reach the Paris Climate Agreement goals.
Creation of energy-efficient Buildings Renovation Action Plans for cities: guideline and application cases
In the last decade, the integration of Renewable Energy Sources in buildings and smart combination of technologies have been identified as key elements for renovations plans which pursue the horizon of Nearly Zero Energy Buildings. In this context, this webinar will be focused in a methodology for elaboration of national roadmaps for energy-efficient buildings renovation where the most relevant stakeholders, barriers and potentials would be identified.
The World Sustainable Energy Days, one of the largest annual conferences in this field in Europe, offer a unique combination of events on sustainable energy. For more than 20 years, experts from all over the world have gathered in Upper Austria to attend the events. In 2015, more than 750 experts from 64 countries participated in the conference!
The ACEEE Hot Water Forum (HWF) is the premier technical conference dedicated to making water hot, distributing it with low losses, and using water with efficient fixtures and practices. Since 2008, the HWF has brought together experts and newcomers from manufacturing; distribution (plumbing); electricity, gas and water utilities; government; and the research community’s opportunities to learn from each other and build momentum for market transformation.
The IEA and RAP are conducting an in-depth analysis for the G7 on the design of market-based instruments for the delivery of energy efficiency. The study examines market mechanisms and economic instruments such as auctions and tendering programmes, utility obligations, and white certificates, analysing the choices that policymakers face and the key factors behind successful programme design and implementation in different contexts.
