|| The webinar will present the core elements of the BEA Targets Playbook – a step-by-step, case-study-based guide for cities and building portfolio managers to develop and implement voluntary building energy efficiency targets and improvement programs. The webinar will draw on the case of Changning District, Shanghai, which utilized a pioneering targets-based building efficiency program to establish itself as a leading low-carbon district in Asia and globally.
In general, while defining energy-efficient, high-performance buildings through codes can be considered the foundation of a successful energy efficiency market transformation program, voluntary energy efficiency targets for existing buildings provide critical direction and momentum. They not only encourage buildings to be operated at a significantly reduced energy usage level, but also incentivize the buildings industry (designers, developers, owners, managers, and service providers) to introduce innovative strategies and technologies to deliver large volumes of energy-efficient, high-performance buildings, which should increase the cost-effectiveness of these buildings over time.
