Dramatic Building Energy
Savings Possible With
A new report from the International
Energy Agency (IEA) shows how existing
energy-efficient heating and cooling
technologies can dramatically reduce
energy consumption and carbon dioxide
emissions from residential, commercial
and public buildings. The latest in the
IEA’s series of ‘technology roadmaps,’
Energy-Efficient Buildings: Heating and
Cooling Equipment analyzes the status
of such technologies as combined heat
and power, thermal energy storage, solar
thermal and heat pumps. It also outlines
strategic goals, actions and milestones to
reach higher levels of market penetration
for these technologies around the world
by 2050 – by which time, the report
says, they could potentially reduce CO2
emissions by up to 2 billion tons (around
a quarter of today’s emissions from
buildings) and save 710 million tons of oil
equivalent of energy. To read this report,
