W3 Build Up. Ahorro energético en la construcción

Sábado, 22 Agosto 2009 12:10
The European Commission launched today the BUILD UP web portal on as a tool for sharing information on reducing energy use of buildings. Content will be regularly updated and enhanced by users themselves to cover a wide range of good practice in energy reduction and of information on legislation. Buildings are responsible for about 40% of total energy consumption in Europe and therefore improvements in building performance are crucial to achieving EU energy-savings targets and combating climate change, whilst contributing to energy security. The EU adopted in 2002 the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), which provided the Member States with an integrated approach towards efficient energy use in the buildings sector. The Commission recognised there is still a considerable potential for cost-efficient energy savings that is not being exploited. Consequently, in November 2008, it proposed a recast of the EPBD that could generate additional energy savings of the equivalent of 60 to 80 million tonnes of oil per year by 2020 – equivalent to a further reduction by 5 to 6% of total EU energy consumption over that achievable by full implementation of the current Directive.  [+]
