Launch of Energy Efficient Building Envelope Technology Roadmap

Webinar: 18 December 2013

Time: 15:00-16:30

For the launch, the IEA and the Clean Energy Solutions Center are hosting webinar-based training based on the roadmap


Technology Roadmap: Energy Efficient Building Envelopes presents detailed strategies and actions to transform the way buildings are constructed by 2050. Key elements include the increased deployment of existing building materials and practices, the introduction of existing solutions to developing markets, and the development of new technologies with higher performance and lower cost. The Roadmap also details:

• A status of technology today for insulation, air sealing, windows, and reflective surfaces, along with market analysis of efficient building envelope technologies for 12 global regions
• Technology development milestones and actions required to initiate the transformation from inefficient buildings envelopes to those that support zero-energy buildings
• The role that building material performance metrics and global standards harmonization play to enable global investment and local manufacturing in higher performing building materials
• The need to pursue highly compliant and stringent building codes for new construction, and policies to promote deep-renovation for the existing buildings stock
• Detailed recommendations for all stakeholders, including governments, researcher, manufacturers, builders, utilities, designers, and others

Panelists will be Didier Houssin, Director of Sustainable Energy Policy and Technology at the International Energy Agency, and Marc LaFrance, who works in the Energy Demand Technology Unit of the International Energy Agency’s (IEA’s) Sustainable Policy and Technology Directorate on analysis related to buildings.
