The path to a cli­mate-com­pat­ible build­ing stock

How can the build­ing sec­tor play its part in achiev­ing the 1.5 °C cli­mate tar­get? After dec­ades of missed op­por­tun­it­ies, bring­ing all build­ings to cli­mate-com­pat­ible en­ergy levels by 2050 is a daunt­ing task.
This present­a­tion sheds light on the is­sue and presents a so­cially, eco­nom­ic­ally, and en­vir­on­ment­ally be­ne­fi­cial scen­ario for how the trans­ition to a sus­tain­able level of build­ing en­ergy us­age can be achieved. The key is to in­clude both, ret­ro­fits and new builds, to use ef­fi­ciency and re­new­ables in a high-qual­ity man­ner, and to per­form en­ergy ret­ro­fits with­in reg­u­lar re­new­al cycles des­pite time con­straints. High-ef­fi­ciency com­pon­ents are par­tic­u­larly im­port­ant; ap­pro­pri­ate policy in­stru­ments for im­ple­ment­a­tion will also be dis­cussed.
