Most buildings are capable of large savings in energy consumption.
The building sector is seen as being able to offer great reductions in energy use and so reductions in carbon emissions. In the UK the residential sector is considered as being able to offer a further 30% reduction over the next decade. Alex Summerfield describes a new approach to measuring energy use in buildings and the savings that are anticipated.
