[Report] Webinar #2: The Role of Energy Saving Targets and Regulatory Measures in Renovation Policy Packages – Key Lessons from Global Best Practices


Presentations & video recording of webinar #2 “The Role of Energy Saving Targets and Regulatory Measures in Renovation Policy Packages” held on 12 June 2014, in partnership with the Clean Energy Solutions Centre, are now available.

Webinar #2 discussed the importance of energy saving targets and how they drive energy renovations. Best practice jurisdictions featured in the GBPN Policy Tool for Renovation have set ambitious energy saving targets and regulatory measures (overall national targets, residential building targets and public building targets). This webinar invited jurisdictions that have set ambitious energy or CO2 saving targets to provide us with insight into how these have been implemented and what role they play in development of policies for energy renovations. The presentations focus on providing insight to other jurisdictions to enable them to learn from their experiences.

Energy renovation policy has only recently come onto the political agenda and is an emerging field. The Policy Tool for Renovation compares and analyses twelve current best practice renovation policies for residential buildings from Europe and the United States, using fourteen criteria that define a “state of the art” policy package. The Tool shows where positive steps have been taken, where other jurisdictions can learn from these actions and where there is scope for further progress to help countries and region to reduce the consumption of their building stock.

Next webinars will explore the role of specific best practice elements of a policy package in driving energy renovations:

– Webinar #3: Labelling and certification schemes

– Webinar #4: Financial and economic instruments.

Detailed agenda to be available shortly.
