PROMOTING ENERGY EFFICIENT PUBLIC BUILDINGS IN CENTRAL EU

The growth of global urban population drives unprecedented construction, resulting in embodied carbon emissions from new buildings alone to excess of 100 gigatons by 2060. If all construction activity, including infrastructure and renovations, are included, the global construction activity carbon until 2060 is set to exceed 230 gigatons, unless carbon intensity is drastically cut.

The recent IPCC report removes all doubt: the building and construction sector must decarbonise by 2050 to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement. As nations all over the globe tackle operational emissions from buildings, we must challenge ourselves to address our sector’s total emissions impact if we are to deliver a truly net zero carbon building stock. COP24 must mark the beginning of a major global campaign to take on this challenge - one on which Europe must lead the world.

The International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has issued a recent report stipulating that without drastic measures to cut carbon emissions, reduce energy use and remove carbon already in the atmosphere, we are “extremely unlikely” to meet the Paris Agreement goal of keeping global warming below 1.5C. With this new paradigm, it’s quite obvious what the to-do list should be for the production companies and large energy intensive ones.

While many studies analyse the innovation, diffusion, and cost developments of low-carbon energy technologies, little research is dedicated to analysing the financing dynamics of these technologies. On November 27, 2018, Prof. Tobias Schmidt and Dr.

IPEEC’s Buildings Energy Efficiency Task Group (BEET) has just released its seventh publication on energy efficiency in the buildings sector, BEET 7, which focuses on zero energy or emissions buildings (ZEBs). While the precise term varies, ZEBs generally refer to highly efficient buildings that use renewable technology to produce as much energy as they consume over the course of a year. The difficulty lies in the variety of metrics used to establish ‘zero’ energy or emissions, in addition to different energy consumption and production boundaries that make direct comparisons hard.

European Utility Week is your platform for achieving a fully integrated and interconnected electricity system and market in Europe. We host the environment for all key players in the smart energy ecosystem to come together and discuss European strategy to achieve a smooth transition towards a low carbon energy supply. This is reflected throughout the event from the exhibition, where we work with the most valuable solution providers, to addressing the key business challenges in the Summit programme.

This webinar focuses on the share of intermittent wind and solar power in the EU which is increasing. Reaching a low-carbon electricity sector will depend on efficient integration of these energy sources by creating more flexibility, including through generation and demand response as well as the grid. This webinar will outline the challenge; give an overview of the status quo of EU electricity markets and present policy recommendations from the recent Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) Task Force on "Improving the Market for Flexibility in the Electricity Sector".
