Mapping climate mitigation technologies and associated goods within the buildings sector
The study focuses on the context of the scope of different strategies for carbon emission reduction from existing and new R&D technologies in the residential and commercial building sector of the developing countries. In order to do that it highlights the range of technologies and goods which could be applied in the residential and commercial building sector for reduction of carbon emissions. With this regard, a specific mention on energy efficiency measures is given on the residential and commercial building sector of the developing countries with a purview of the global situation. The study shows that carbon emissions from residential and commercial buildings of developed countries have been higher than the level of emissions in the same sector from developing countries. For a convergence in carbon emissions between developed and developing countries, it is essential to mitigate carbon emissions from the residential and commercial building sector of developing countries also. In order to achieve the path of carbon emission reduction in the residential and commercial building sector of developing countries, carbon mitigation goods and technologies would be required. Already many technologies and goods are commercially available in the developing countries to address energy efficiency in the thermal envelope, daylighting, household appliances, consumer electronics, building integrated solar applications.
