The positive energy buildings laboratory seeks to develop interactive support for the development of roadmaps for positive energy buildings. The laboratory aims to do this by building on the lessons learned from GBPN's comparative study of building energy efficiency codes and policy packages for new buildings (residential and commercial). The study highlighted two key areas that require further research in order to ensure the accurate comparison of building codes and increased compliance with those standards.

New GBPN Policy Paper shows that implementing ambitious performance building policies can achieve deep reductions in energy consumption and CO2 emissions and sets out the necessary steps towards a "Deep market transformation".


Policy Paper: Buildings For Our Future, The Deep Path for Closing the Emissions Gap in the Building Sector
