Energy performance

Buildings account for 40% of total energy consumption in Europe, so a continued focus on energy efficiency in buildings will help Europe stay on track with its commitments as it transitions towards a lower-carbon economy. Though oil prices have plunged during the past year, consumers and industrial users remain increasingly concerned with the cost of energy.

A greater focus on the potential for energy savings in buildings could be a strong driver in helping reduce the world’s use of energy and its carbon emissions. The cheapest, cleanest energy is energy that isn't used in the first place
