Time to Clean the Building Efficiency Garage and Get Organized to implement COP21 Commitments

In the last couple of weeks I was fortunate to have attended two important meetings in Paris convened by separate groups, but each with the same aim of developing actions that could again raise the profile of building energy efficiency and the potential of the sector to contribute significantly to achieving climate change goals. At the same time a different set of stakeholders with the same objectives was meeting in New York. All groups are looking ahead to COP21 in Paris as a potential catalyst for finally mainstreaming sustainable buildings and cities. However, despite common intentions, we risk failing to seize this opportunity due to a lack strategic coordination.

Thoughts for 2015: URGENCY & AMBITION

15-12-2014 | Peter Graham | Global, South-East Asia, South-East Asia
Categories: Policies

Before turning to 2015, a word or two about urgency and ambition. If we are to play a role in capping global warming to no more than 2 degrees, then we need to keep focussed not only on energy efficiency but on the magnitude of reductions in total energy demand required to be delivered by the building sector in the coming decades.

A Guided Tour of Recently Launched Sustainable Building Initiatives

Mainstreaming sustainable buildings is essential if we are to effectively tackle climate change and provide sustainable urban environments. Despite the large number of organizations and programs in this space, the penetration of sustainable building practices is not yet mainstream in development activity, building & planning policies, or built environment education.

Technical Report: 印度的居住建筑: 能耗预测和节能潜力

Report / 23-09-2014 / India / English
Authors: GBPN & CEPT

一个新的情景分析证明了印度如果采用非常积极的居住建筑能效政策及市场驱动手段可以实现其未来建筑领域能源需求的减少。数据表明,如果按现在的趋势发展,居住建筑领域的能耗将增加到现在的八倍。该研究表明,如果开始发展居住建筑领域的能效策略并为政策制定者提出合理建议,这种极坏的情景是可以被避免的并可以实现未来可持续的发展。
