1 International Cooperation Project for Developed and Developing Countries on the issue of Building Energy Efficiency Thomas Guéret, Global Energy Efficiency Strategy Advisor UNDP/BDP/EEG/EITT IEA Building Envelope Workshop Paris, November 18 th 2011

2 Scope Energy Efficiency in the Building Sector Building Codes Refurbishment Appliances (energy label, MEPS*) Training, Methods and Tools Foreseen extension to Urban Planning and Transportation *MEPS: Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards

3 Developed countries and developing countries Technology and payment capacities Policy capacities Developed Countries High Products available, innovation Fair Still to be improved Developing Countries Lower Market or financial barriers To be developed Energy statistics Available Poorly available Basic Energy Access Buildings and infrastructure Refurbishment A concern for low income households only Massive needs Poor payment capacity A lot are already in place Still to be developed Improve EE of buildings with existing systems Introduce service and comfort in an efficient manner

4 An alliance of developed and developing countries: Why? Organization in charge Type of international initiatives Suggested extension Energy statistics Training Developed Countries IEA progressive inclusion of emerging countries Technology and Policy reviews and analysis Include more developing countries or regions Improve harmonize Introduce EE indicators Include more countries Developing Countries UNDP its mandate covers developing and transition economy countries only Basic policy developments (capacity building, B. codes...) Contribute/initiate a worldwide EE cooperation to foster 2 ways exchanges Build or develop capacities Follow-up over the long term Develop E-training solutions on specific technical issues (e.g. address envelope air leakage reduction) based on specific regional expertise and languages

5 Market barriers and empowerment Market barriers are the principal problems to energy efficiency: Lack of information and standards Products are often not available on the market (esp. in developing countries) Lack of investment capacity induces higher expenses (and higher pollution) over the life time of an (or a non-)investment

6 Life-Cycle Cost Least Life Cycle Cost and the Market Theory LLCC Life-Cycle Costs Subsidy Purchase Price Saved Cost on Energy Life-Time Running Costs Energy Savings in kwh/year

7 Life-Cycle Cost Money waste Least Life Cycle Cost and Market barriers LLCC Life-Cycle Costs Purchase Price 400 Energy waste 200 Market barrier Life-Time Running Costs Energy Savings in kwh/year

8 Life-Cycle Cost US LLCC Standard Action LLCC Life-Cycle Costs 1000 $ savings 800 Purchase Price Additional investment Energy savings 600$/home $/home Life-Time Running Costs Energy 150Savings Total DOE Programme Cost: 2$/home

9 IEA-UNDP Partnership Analysis of UNDP GEF EE projects Include Developing and Transition Economy Countries: in Global Energy Statistics In Public Policy analysis and review Develop common tools Peer to peer Web-based Training Tools Dynamic models for thermal performance (software) Common Publications Ultimately work on Urban Planning and Transportation

10 UNDP IEA UNEP - SBCI Global partnership GBPN Global Buildings Performance Network Wuppertal Institute BigEE project CLASP WBCSD Regionally based organisations: e.g. UfM (Union for Mediterranean), EU...

11 Regional workshops to promote EE Organised with global and regional partners Objectives: Raise the profile of EE in national policies Convene the community of EE specialists, corporations and policy makers Promote successful initiatives, develop common tools, regional trainings... Projects: China and India (Spring 2012), maybe Morocco...

12 Global Agenda 2012 for EE Regional workshops Rio+20 Possible high level political meeting 2012: Sustainable Energy for All Year Promote the 3 x 30 Universal acces to modern and sustainable energy by % improvement of Global EE by % of Renewable Energy Sources by 2030 International agreement on EE actions?
