IAMs tend to focus on energy supply rather than on energy demand. Still, energy demand is a main driver of emissions and, related to this, energy efficiency can form a major part of mitigation strategies. The ADVANCE expert workshop dug deeper into this topic with a focus on energy efficiency in buildings. It brought together external experts and stakeholders to discuss technological and behavioural options to increase energy efficiency in buildings as well as demand management options to support grid integration of VRE. The workshop was held on 20-21 January 2015 in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
Session 1: Technological options in buildings, and implications for modelling / potential game changing innovations for energy demand
Session 2: Behavioral options in buildings, and implications for modelling
Session 3: Demand management options to support VRE grid integration
