Paris workshop at ADEME: RIDEF's Director, Pagliano: "Energy sufficiency: the link between buildings and city"
The Director of Master RIDEF, Prof. Lorenzo Pagliano will held a presentation on "Sufficiency policies in urbanism",
linking actions for sufficiency and efficiency in buildings to the design of districts and cities and the use of public spaces.
For buildings and cities to be able to stand the increase in global temperatures (and contribute to limiti it) there is need for more surfaces devoted to trees and parks, the need for large surfaces able to reflect out solar radiation. These uses compete with the present overwhelming use of public spaces for individual car traffic and parking.
The energy sufficiency project has produced a number of concept papers and workshop reports, available on the project website: www.energysufficiency.org. The concept papers discuss different aspects of energy sufficiency and are intended to stimulate debate.
Energy sufficiency can be described as a state in which people’s basic needs for energy services are met equitably and ecological limits are respected. It can also be described as the actions that move us towards this state; policy or practice changes that change the nature or the quantity of the energy services that we demand.
