The UNECE Joint Task Force on Energy Efficiency Standards in Buildings has completed a study on mapping of energy efficiency standards in buildings and is in the process of finalizing a study on mapping of technologies to enhance energy efficiency in buildings in the UNECE region and developing a Compendium of best practices on standards and technologies for energy efficiency in buildings in the UNECE region. It has started a training programme on high-performance energy efficiency standards in buildings for building sector practitioners, policy makers, and trainers. The Framework Guidelines on Energy Efficiency Standards in Buildings endorsed by UNECE in 2017 has set in motion the process of setting up international centres of excellence and a consortium of educational and research institutions to promote and implement the High-Performance Buildings Initiative.
This workshop will provide participants with an overview of the status and objectives of the works of the Joint Task Force and, in an interactive segment, explore how the Framework Guidelines can be a transformative movement in the UNECE region.
The Fourth meeting of the Joint Task Force is held in the framework of the Ninth International Forum on Energy for Sustainable Development and is a part of the Fifth Session of Group of Experts on Energy Efficiency.
