    Seizing the Potential in Buildings Seizing the Potential in Buildings Presentation Transcript

    • Seizing the Potential in Buildings • EU-China Conference on Quality and Energy Efficiency in Buildings • 29-30 January 2008 • Beijing, China • Horst Biedermann
    • REEEP Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership 1. REEEP is a global private public partnership launched by the UK government at the WSSD 2. REEEP currently comprises more than 224 partners representing 38 governments, businesses and NGOs all committed to accelerating the uptake of renewable energy and energy efficiency 3. REEEP is funded by the EU and 11 governments: Austria, Australia, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, US, and UK, the major donor of REEEP
    • REEEP Partners are businesses, the G7 countries, NGOs, Brazil, SA, Mexico and developing countries Currently more than 224 partners: • 38 Governments • International organizations, NGOs and companies
    • REEEP is a Partnership for Delivery 1. REEEP acts as a facilitator and enabler and is profiled as a change agent towards clean energy systems 2. REEEP aims to reduce market barriers for renewables and energy efficiency systems in transition and developing countries 3. REEEP believes in action on the ground via project activities that are targeted on policy improvements and innovative finance mechanisms 4. REEEP is recognized in the international political arena - G8, UNFCC, APEC
    • REEEP delivers value via Regional Secretariats REEEP Regional Office REEEP International Russia REEEP Regional Office Secretariat North America REEEP Regional Office Central Europe REEEP Regional Office REEEP Regional Office Latin America & East Asia Caribbean REEEP Local Focal Point MEDREP REEEP Regional Office South Asia REEEP West Africa Focal Point REEEP Regional Office South East Asia & Pacific REEEP Regional Office Africa
    • REEEP Global Review on Energy Efficiency 2008 1. First Status Report on Energy Efficiency Markets under the guidance of the Energy Efficiency Coalition 2. Provide an up-to-date characterization of the markets, policies & incentive systems and involved stakeholders 3. Target OECD countries and the emerging market economies of Brazil, China, India, Mexico and South Africa 4. Thermal and electrical EE, Demand-Side and Supply-Side EE 5. Project partner: Ecofys
    • International Cooperation is important to make energy efficiency the mainstream Initiation of the Energy Efficiency Coalition : A REEEP initiative and driven by the industry - will comprise of a wide group of relevant stakeholders in energy efficiency Global approach with focus on OECD and Plus Five countries Sustainable platform which increases advocacy for EE and helps to bridge the gap between quot;talkingquot; and implementation Sharing of best practices and finance solutions Coalition will be launched at COP 13 end of 2007
    • The energy efficiency potential in buildings in Europe
    • Trias Energetica quot;the most sustainable energy is saved energyquot; 3rd: efficient use of fossil energy sources 2nd: use renewable energy sources 1st: minimise energy loss
    • Meeting key challenges in Europe and worldwide z EU unlikely Buildings alone have the z Global to meet Action potential to reach Kyoto No action Kyoto Warming objectives z objectives Increasing Reducing energy demand dependence dependence Security of in buildings can help limit on foreign No action Action Energy Supply our exposure to supply energy issues sources EU Lisbon Improving energy objectives Competitiveness No action Action efficiency improves not economic efficiency achieved
    • Buildings and energy use in Europe 40%
    • Potential from buildings (EU) - CO2 savings 460 million tonnes
    • Potential from buildings (EU) – security of supply 3.3 million barrels of oil
    • Potential from buildings (EU) - cost savings 270 billion
    • Potential from buildings (EU) – sacrifice 0
    • ECOFYS reports – quantifying the potential in the building sector Cost Enlarged Price Climate Regulation Effectiveness EU Scenario Protection
    • Quantifying the gap in the EU 10% Only ten percent of the potential for buildings is being seized by the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive Untapped 32% 40% 28% Transport Industry Buildings
    • How to fill the gap All small buildings Existing New large buildings ECOFYS buildings Current Study EU rules
    • Bob the Builder and EU Energy Commissioner Andris Piebalgs © 2006 HIT Entertainment Limited and Keith Chapman
    • A Roadmap for Europe: sizing the potential Upfront financing Organisational Effective support regulation
    • Key points 1. It can be done 2. Tenure matters, regions don’t 3. Hidden barriers 4. Help me - don’t tell me 5. Money isn’t everything but it helps 6. Organisational structures are key
    • Recommandations G8 • Provide a strong signal that energy efficiency in buildings must be a priority European Union • Extend the buildings directive so that no component of a house can be renovated without an energy efficiency upgrade taking place National • Implement nation energy efficiency action plans with clear barrier analysis Local • Provide organisational support
    • Mandatory Building Codes and Standards for New Housing World- and Renovation World-wide
    • USA – Present Regulations
    • New standards for all buildings in Europe • Recommended U-values based on cost effectiveness and climate protection (post Kyoto target). Ecofys VII • Integrated approach with the European Directive on the Energy Performance of Buildings.
    • New recommendations to respond to heating and cooling demands Heating demand + Cooling demand
