Policy Evidence Base

Municipal policy makers need to navigate, analyse and prioritise a broad range of resources available on buildings efficiency online in order to tailor solutions to their specific local circumstances. However, the proliferation of on-line resources does not necessarily lead to better decision-making or access to trusted sources upon which decisions can be made. Many resources are offered without clear provenance or transparency on the source, quality or utility of resources.

Last November, GBPN launched a series of webinars on the "How To" of Building Energy Code Development. The next and the last webinar “Getting Building Codes Right: Implementation and Enforcement” will explore the barriers that are faced by countries particularly when it comes to implementing rigorous enforcement systems for new buildings, will present examples of good enforcement as well as other best practice measures for supporting implementation.

Last August, the IEA & UNDP hosted a webinar to launch their joint publication: “Modernising Building Energy Codes to Secure our Global Energy Future”. The issues discussed in the webinar were very important but from the questions asked by the audience, it was clear that there is still a demand for further information about how to implement the recommendations made and to learn from existing best-practice examples.

A report from the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), commissioned by the GBPN, in collaboration with The China Sustainable Energy Program (CSEP) finds that China is on the right track towards increasing energy efficiency in buildings. However, clearer rules and easier access to domestic financing are necessary to ensure that these efficiency measures are brought to the right scale.
