Summary : Currently, 70% of global energy use has no energy performance requirements, essential in the fight against global warming. In order to meet the objectives of the Paris Agreement, efforts still need to be made in spite of existing international actions; especially from emerging and developing countries that have achieved the biggest gains in terms of energy intensity, ahead of developed countries.
In the EU, the 'energy winter package'
published by the European Commission at the end of 2016 highlights a 30% improvement binding target for energy efficiency by 2030.
In France, the energy transition for green growth Act aims to reduce energy consumption by 20% between 2012 and 2030, and by 50% by 2050.
A number of actions have been carried out to, for example, reaching an objective of 500,000 renovated buildings per year starting in 2017, or to encourage energy suppliers to achieve energy savings (see p.2-3).
Among other priorities, we now have to strengthen cooperation between countries to share best practices and support the development of regulatory tools in order to improve understanding of energy efficiency in the intended nationally determined contributions (INDCs), as part of the Paris Agreement.
