Building Envelope Technologies and Policies Workshop

Workshop — Neuilly-sur-Seine, France


The total global final energy consumption in 2007 was 8230 Mtoe. The buildings sector consumed 2759 Mtoe 44% of which was consumed by buildings in OECD countries. The IEA Energy Technology Perspectives 2010 (ETP 2010) baseline scenario shows that by 2050 the total energy consumption from the sector is expected to increase by 62% to over 4477 Mtoe with an increase in CO2 emissions of 87% to reach 15.2 Gt.

The IEA is organizing a series of workshops on buildings energy efficiency policies and technologies in different geographical regions to enable a deeper understanding of the regional particularities of the buildings sector in terms of policies and technologies.

The IEA workshops bring together policy makers, technical experts, industry and analysts from both the IEA member and the non-member countries. The aim of the IEA workshops on buildings energy efficiency policies and technologies is to:

  • share proven energy efficiency policy practices with experts on buildings energy policies
  • share information on existing buildings and equipment, as well as forthcoming efficient and low-carbon technologies and low buildings energy policies
  • better understand the trends in efficient technologies for buildings
  • better understand building stock and energy consumption trends

The first workshop of this series was held in Paris and was hosted by Deloitte Finance (Neuilly-sur-Seine). It was held on November 17th and 18th.
Subsequent workshops will be held in other regions.
The outcomes of these workshops will feed into the IEA publications on buildings energy efficiency policies and technologies.
