Objective on a 2020 horizon
The member states have committed themselves to reducing primary energy consumption by 20%. Every system and every technology has its place in this challenge and they all show considerable potential.
The decisions taken at the Grenelle Environment Forum have shown the way towards strong, sustainable job-producing growth both in energy production and in energy performance for buildings. It is our whole society that must “enter the world-of-afterwards”.
Development of renewable energies – solar, hydroelectric, wind, biomass, geothermal, etc. - offer an alternative to exhausting fossil resources and considerably reduce pollutant emissions. At present, many governments are reinforcing their policy for regulating energy consumption, more especially with building and public lighting plans.
In 2011, close attention will be paid to public lighting.
Over 40% of local authorities’ budgets are devoted to it, therefore it is primordial that consumption be reduced in this sector.
The “green revolution” is on the move and it is opening a vast market: sustainable construction, which combines energy and environmental performance.
The objective being to give buildings a new dimension with the perspective of intelligent networks and a positive energy growth engine.
The new RT 2012 imposes new building standards and requires construction projects to be redesigned. Moreover, highly motivating tax and statutory incentives will be set up.
ENR Green 2011 is there to help you prepare for these evolutions.
