Energy use in buildings: Use it better, use it less

Length: 14’37”

Date of production: June 2005

Subject: In Europe 40% of our energy use is consumed in buildings, more than by industry or transport. That is a lot. It is too much. There is great potential for energy savings in this field, often at little cost. A new European directive contributes to improving the energy performance of buildings. It provides, for example, for: the application of minimum standards of energy efficiency to buildings in every country in the EU; the creation of a certificate to inform buyers or tenants of the energy performance of the building they hope to occupy; the posting in large, frequented, public buildings of energy performance certificates for information.
