The International Energy Agency has published a special report as part of its World Energy Outlook series, assessing the effect of recent low-carbon energy developments and the climate pledges proposed by various countries ahead of the Conference of the Parties (COP21) to be held in Paris in December 2015. It finds that while global energy-related emissions did not grow in 2014 (for the first time outside an economic crisis in 40 years) national policies are not going far enough to avert catastrophic climate change.

Innovate UK- ‘Design for Future Climate’ report

By Bridget Elliott on 3rd June 2015

Innovate UK (previously known as the Technology Strategy Board) yesterday launched the final report of the Design for Future Climate: Adapting Buildings (D4FC) programme. The report is a culmination of £5M funding and 4 years of work by up to 240 companies on £4.2BN of capital projects across England and Wales. The report analyses the drivers that affect the market for professional building design services to ready buildings for the changing climate. It also develops the business case for adaptation to move from niche research to mainstream.
