This report assesses the extent to which it would be feasible for the non-residential building sector as a whole, and for individual building forms, to achieve net zero energy and/or greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
China’s Belt and Road Initiative is a colossal infrastructure plan that could transform the economies of nations around the world. But with its focus on coal-fired power plants, the effort could obliterate any chance of reducing emissions and tip the world into catastrophic climate change....
One of the most important governance challenges in terms of energy saving is the physical upgrading of apartment buildings via housing retrofitting. In urban studies, little focus has been applied to the shape and character of the retrofit governance frameworks to realise inclusion of householders....
This International Energy Agency analysis uses the latest monthly and annual data available from national statistical offices, energy ministries and international organisations to build full energy balances by region.
This report by the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) develops a framework definition for net zero carbon buildings to provide the industry with clarity on how to achieve net zero carbon in construction and operation.
This report aims to help policymakers identify what options could be included in a low-cost policy package (a combination of policies, measures, and technologies) to achieve Mexico´s Greenhouse Gas abatement targets and a more ambitious emissions trajectory, along with the benefits associated with both.
The human relationship with food is an under-acknowledged contributor towards climate change and environmental degradation. However, citizens’ choices and actions regarding food consumption and production in urban settings are shaped by the economic, cultural and infrastructure systems in which they live.
The purpose of...
The purpose of this paper (parts I and II) is to examine the socio-technical factors that affect urban food production and associated energy, water and waste services. Part I introduced the growing role of prosumers, discussed the context of the human relationship with food and...
A data-driven approach is proposed to discover heat load patterns in district heating.
The first large-scale analysis of all the buildings in six different categories is presented.
The authors showcase how typical and atypical behaviors look like in the entire...
The ‘Beyond White Gum Valley Precincts Guide: The Energy Village Concept’ objective is to assist design teams and planning assessment officers on ‘innovative’ and achievable options for implementing a precinct distributed energy system (DES). Balance’s starting point is that the objective for the precinct’s embedded...
