The energy productivity opportunity

There have been positive steps in the built environment sector over recent years with regard to energy productivity, particularly through significant investment in large public and private sector office occupants, mostly relating to the efficiency of heating and cooling.

However, an energy productive built environment sits at the intersection of urban design, infrastructure investment, technological advances and socio-economic development trends. Isolated investments are therefore unlikely to deliver an energy productive built environment. Productivity improvement in such a complex system will require co-ordinated action.

The role of energy productivity in Australia's new emissions reduction target

With the announcement of a new target to reduce emissions by 26-28% on 2005 levels by 2030, the Australian Government also stated that improving energy productivity by 40% in 2030 would form a key measure through which significant reductions would be achieved.
