The GBPN recently organised a series of webinars on the "How To" of Building Energy Code Development. Video recorings of the three webinars are now available.
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.
