The potential benefits of building energy codes are numerous. With effective codes, buildings could deliver energy services to families and businesses using a fraction of the energy used today, while improving comfort and productivity. Jobs and markets could be created in new industries for energy saving technologies. Pollution in homes and cities and heat-trapping greenhouse gas emissions could be mitigated, protecting human health, well-being, and prosperity. The potential is great, but realizing that potential requires the successful implementation of building energy codes.

This Webinar will present lessons learned from G20 countries in successfully implementing and improving compliance with building energy codes, and case studies from Australia and South Africa. The presentations are based on outcomes of the Building Energy Efficiency Task Group 3 project conducted for the International Partnership for Energy Efficiency Cooperation (IPEEC), the Major Economies Forum (MEF), and G20 by PNNL and GBPN. The BEET 3 project included data collection on current code status in MEF and G20 countries, identification of candidate areas for collaboration by an expert review panel, and phone discussions and webinars with experts from participating governments.

The presentations will be followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience.
