Training Seminar on High-performance energy efficiency standards in buildings in the UNECE Region

Training Seminar on High-performance energy efficiency standards in buildings in the UNECE Region

05 - 07 September 2018
St. Petersburg Russia

Training Seminar on "High-performance energy efficiency standards in buildings in the UNECE Region" is jointly organized by UNECE and JSC "Interstate Corporation for Development" in partnership with the Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency Under the auspices of the Joint Task Force on Energy Efficiency Standards in Buildings. Organization of this event is made possible through the project "Promoting the application of high-performance energy efficiency standards in buildings in member states of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation Organization (BSEC) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE)" funded by BSEC.

The Committee on Sustainable Energy and the Committee on Housing and Land Management established the Joint Task Force on Energy Efficiency Standards in Buildings in 2015. Representatives of member states, the private sector, academia. NGOs and international organizations comprise the membership of the Joint Task Force.

The target audience of this training seminar is policy makers and building sector professionals, who are, ideally, future trainers in their respective countries. The seminar aims to provide useful information on high-performance energy efficiency standards in buildings and their application in UNECE countries, which will improve overall knowledge of policy makers and building sector professionals in application of high-performance energy efficiency standards, and subsequently will contribute to the reduction of global greenhouse gas emissions from buildings in the UNECE and BSEC member countries.

Please, register for this meeting online by 6 August 2018.
