6th IEA-Tsinghua Joint Workshop: Sustainable Recovery in Building Sector


The workshop explored and discussed key technical, economic and policy issues faced by the building sector to support the transformation of the energy system. In particular it focused on the unprecedent growth of demand for cooling and the active role played by buildings to integrate renewable energy sources.

The workshop, outcome of the longstanding collaboration between IEA and the Building Energy Research Centre of Tsinghua University, involved more than 20 invited international speakers with the objective to exchange lesson learned in terms of policies, programme design and  implementation and to exchange knowledge and experience in terms of the most recent technology advancements.
