About Smart and efficient buildings and cities


Forty per cent of the world’s energy is consumed in the built environment. Energy efficient buildings and cities are key to sustainable development. We are fostering innovation that:

  • Enables energy-positive homes and commercial buildings,
  • Encourages energy-saving behaviours at home and at work,
  • Supports a smart and sustainable transport system.
