Regulatory standards and barriers to improved performance for housing
1 January 2008
This paper argues that energy efficiency in dwellings probably needs to improve more rapidly, and to higher levels, than is likely to be achieved by current policy if global mean temperature rise is to be held to 2 K. History suggests that achieving real reductions in carbon emissions is not easy in this sector. Future progress will require significant changes in the way policy is formulated and implemented.
