Organiser: IEA

Contact Email: marc.lafrance@iea.org

Background

The objective of this workshop was to seek advice from key global building stakeholders to raise the importance of building energy efficiency among high level energy policy directors while providing the fundamental analysis to support more investment from both the public and private sectors. To seek input in the development of metrics for tracking aggregate building energy performance to understand progress in building energy efficiency, impacts of policies, and opportunities for improvement. The aim of the workshop was also to seek the establishment of a range of informal and formal partnerships to expand and improve the quality of our large data set that is used in our global model to forecast various scenarios including deep carbon mitigation.
