Energy efficiency: Buildings

Find out how much energy is used around the globe, the breakdown of the buildings that use it, and our predicted future energy usage.

In an age where energy use is high, investments in energy efficiency provides massive savings for individuals, households and businesses.

We produced the info-graphic below to highlight the amount of energy buildings are currently using and what they are forecasted to consume in the future. By taking a few simple and effective measures people can help to make buildings more energy efficient and therefore save money and protect the environment.

In the info-graphic you'll see that consumer electronics and computer equipment represents 15 per cent of global residential electricity consumption. In fact, energy used by these devices is expected to triple by 2030 unless actions are taken to increase energy efficiency.
