Abstract

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 2Â 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.
