The 4 mistakes when pitching building efficiency

Buildings efficiencyAlthough new technologies are constantly being developed to complement current practices in creating greener structures, the common objective is that green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment. Below, Sara Neff explain to us which are the 4 mistakes common when pitching building efficiency.

Let's see green by Maxwell Haynes

Your grandma beats you while saving energy

The seniors are the people the most sensitive to the wasting of energy due to the fact that they stay at their home most of the time. Thus, they need to watch their energy consumption.

Below, a little video realized by Maxwell Haynes about senior citizens’ commitment in the green economy. The purpose of this video it’s to “improving senior citizens knowledge of saving energy, energy efficiency and the technologies which can help them to produce energy”.

WHO CAN HELP FIRMS AND AUTHORITIES IMPLEMENT ENERGY EFFICIENCY SOLUTIONS?

Your clients receive everyday many sollicitations from so-called leaders of their industry willing to offer Energy Efficiency solutions for very little money and lots of expected benefits. Who are they? Which firms try to break into this industry of sobriety? What do they really sell? Are all these solutions comparable?

As a consequence, suppliers provide many different solutions to achieve these goals. Thus, existing Energy Efficiency suppliers in the Market include, among many different actors willing to lead the energy performance relationship with customers, such as ESCOs, equipment suppliers, utilities, software and cable companies, and contractors. Let’s have a look at the main European ones:

The World in 2030 with or without Energy Efficiency

“Energy efficiency is the most important single future source of energy to supply the growing energy demand and to protect the climate. Being energy efficient in industry, mobility and housing will offer the biggest potential to use energy more efficient.”

Everybody try to be convinced of this point. But what would be our future with or without Energy Efficiency? Energy consumption and CO2 emissions should both increase by more than 50% in 2030.

In this straightforward and educational video podcast by BASF, you’ll find comprehensive practical examples of Energy Conservation Measures in manufactories, transport, household and some convincing key messages.

Why Energy Efficiency is an important issue today?

World Energy Consumption Evolution over the past century

Vincent BRYANT

For about a century, the world population has been multiplied by 12. We are 12 times as many today as at the end of the XIXth century. Since 1879, when was the electric bulb was created, the world energy consumption has been multiplied by more than 50.

Alongside the increase of the world population, we can indeed notice that the energy needs per person also increase greatly, despite the innovations and the technological improvements from which the population benefits. Indeed, the technical yields were generally strongly improved during the past century, but these efforts have been completely compensated by two effects:
