Global energy targets

New modeling by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) shows how energy use in buildings can be cut by 60  % by 2050 – essential to meeting global climate change targets – but this will require immediate action to transform the building sector. This is the central message of the report from the four-year, 15 million US$ Energy Efficiency in Buildings (EEB) research project, the most rigorous study ever conducted on the subject. The EEB’s report ‘Transforming the Market: Energy Efficiency in Buildings‘ , its unique simulation model and the project’s roadmap to transform the building sector were presented in April 2009 in Paris at the Alliance to Save Energy’s EE Global Forum and Exposition. The report will also be released in Washington, D.C., and Beijing.
