The IEA Global Status Report 2017 – Towards an energy efficient construction sector

energy efficient

The Global Status Report 2017, prepared by the International Energy Agency (IEA) for the Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction (GABC) notes “Over the next 40 years, the world is expected to build 230 billion square metres in new construction – adding the equivalent of Paris to the planet every single week. This rapid growth is not without consequences. While buildings sector energy intensity has improved in recent years, this has not been enough to offset rising energy demand. Fortunately, many opportunities exist to deploy energy-efficient and low-carbon solutions for buildings and construction. Ambitious action is needed without delay to avoid locking in long-lived, inefficient buildings assets for decades to come. Examples across the multitude of actions by Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction (GABC) countries and partners illustrate that this ambition is indeed possible.”  Read more.
