Energy Efficiency ‘Reduces CO2 Emissions’

Energy efficiency can provide 38% of what is required to ensure the planet heats no more than two degrees by 2050, according to the International Energy Agency.

Building is responsible for around one-third of global energy expenditure. To fight climate change, it is expected that the building sector with contribute 45% of CO2 emissions savings by the year 2040 thanks to their stricter building codes and use of energy performance standards for appliances and equipment.

Previously, it has been found that energy efficient installations make savings.

Technologies that already exist like variable speed compressors, radiator thermostats and control valves have a low pay-back time and can cut the energy used by cooling and heating systems by 40%.

According to an article published by the Huffington Post, the technologies to achieve this exist and makes sense business-wise.

More than half of the energy utilised to generate electricity is lost in the air, which inspires the development of heating and cooling systems that capture the surplus heat and use it to heat or cool properties or supply hot water.

However, the difficulty of battling remains as many of these technologies that could be used are halted or hindered by politics.

Campaigners are hopeful that the meeting in Paris, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, can reach a truce and the world can accelerate its fight against climate change.

The meeting of nations only began one month after the Government controversially ditched the Green Deal.
