In order to support the best practice sharing of building energy efficiency policies globally, it is essential that we have a common understanding of the key terms and definitions that relate to the field. This glossary aims to define key terms and to highlight regional differences in definitions in order to ensure that we are speaking the same language and work as effectively as possible to bring about change in the building sector. 

This glossary has been developed by Global Buildings Performance Network in partnership with Buildings Performance Institute Europe
