[Tool] The Policy Tool for Renovation Now Available in Chinese
The new Policy Tool for Renovation released on March 3 is now available in Chinese. It provides Chinese authorities with expertise in adapting, developing and implementing international best practice energy renovation policies.
The online interactive tool compares and analyses twelve 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. While the analysis is restricted to the EU and the US, the effort has shown that all regions globally can learn lessons from others and use those lessons to find the right balance of elements to be adapted to their local context.
In order to conserve energy in China, it is prerequisite that their buildings are renovated efficiency. By deeply renovating China’s existing building stock (whilst building new efficient buildings), the GBPN’s “deep” scenario demonstrates that it is possible to reduce the overall building energy consumption in China by 10% by 2050 (compared to a 2005 baseline). In order to realise this reduction, best practice renovation policies can be adopted in China that successfully reduce the overall consumption of the existing building stock.
The tool captures the performance of the current best practices, enables their comparison and provides insight into what needs to be realised to accelerate more and deeper renovation policies worldwide. More detailed about key findings from the tool here.
