Promoting Energy Efficiency Standards And Technologies To Enhance Energy Efficiency in Buildings-UNECE


Promoting Energy Efficiency Standards And Technologies To Enhance Energy Efficiency in Buildings

In countries of the UNECE region, existing normative instruments for buildings' energy performance range from voluntary guidelines to mandatory standards applying to different building types. Its development is a complex decision-making process involving variety of stakeholders, like for publicly, so for privately owned buildings.

This publication aims to provide better understanding of the status of deployment and implementation of energy efficiency standards in buildings in the UNECE region based on data gathered through desk research and stakeholder outreach. It addresses challenges of climatic conditions, latitude, legislative acts, construction practices, existing building stock and maintenance practices and occupant behavior, including enforcement, training and monitoring mechanisms. The publication also identifies and highlights best practices in adopting, implementing and enforcing energy efficiency standards and energy-efficient technologies for buildings in the UNECE region. The examples are listed in sections based on their legislative and behavior change, technical measures, and financial mechanisms.

To our success, all three REELIH implementing countries are listed among the best practice examples. Moreover, our HFHI Advocacy Officer Zita Kakalejcikova and our partners Marin Petrovic from Enova, Liljana Alceva from HFH Macedonia, Varsenik Khloyan from HFH Armenia and Andrew Popelka from USAID are listed among contributors to this publication in regard to REELIH projects.
