Net Zero Energy Buildings


About 75% of the buildings expected to exist in India in 2030 have not been built. In this context, India offers a huge opportunity to avoid carbon lock-in associated with new buildings. To encourage and improve the new building stock’s energy performance in India, we have created, in partnership with the Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation, a dedicated programme of activities, adapted to India’s economic and demographic context.

The GPBN has published the first objective criteria for comparing best approaches to energy efficiency building codes. The criteria, developed by experts and based on examples from around the world, are classified in an easy on-line tool designed to promote adoption of ambitious dynamic codes within a strong policy framework.

The GBPN has researched 25 best-practice building energy efficiency codes from around the world, analysing the content of these codes in terms of best-practice elements and comparing how the implementation of these elements compares across codes. The outcome of the research entitled “A Comparative Analysis of Building Energy Efficiency Policies for New Buildings” provides the first objective criteria for comparing best practice approaches to energy efficiency building codes (residential and commercial). Through this report, the GBPN aims to assist decision-makers to understand the mechanisms behind dynamic building codes and strengthen the future design of dynamic policies taking implementation and evaluation into consideration.

Positive Energy Buildings

In 2013, GBPN in partnership with the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) launched the 1 Billion m2 of Positive Energy Buildings Campaign. This campaign aims to support the significant up-scale of buildings that produce more energy than they consume globally. Such a paradigm shift in the building sector is necessary if we are to tackle the predicted climate change impacts of the historically unprecedented boom in new construction in emerging economies and to ensure the supply of affordable energy for all.
