A cumulative work commissioned by the Global Buildings Performance Network, this report explores the mitigation potential from buildings in China, the European Commission, India and the United States. Based on the potential, the authors offer an array of policy options for reaching building performance goals and offer roadmaps for implementation.
Buildings for Our Future is the culmination of two major studies commissioned by the GBPN. The GBPN commissioned the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), United States, to identify and analyse the best performing building energy policies implemented today and the Central European University (CEU) Center for Climate Change and Energy Policy (3CSEP), Hungary, to determine the best-possible CO2 mitigation scenarios globally and in each of our target regions.
Buildings for Our Future first explores the mitigation potential from buildings in China, European Union (EU), India and the United States (US) and provides an overview of the analysis of the array of policy options used to improve the energy performance of buildings in these regions. The key issues that influence the way forward are then presented. Finally, the report provides instruction for drawing up roadmaps for the design and implementation of a Deep Path aiming to realise the building sector’s significant mitigation potential.Link to resource Download source
