Improving energy performance in buildings

The Energy Efficiency Council and the International Energy Agency Energy in Buildings and Communities (IEA EBC) are hosting a webinar about improving energy performance in buildings on June 30, titled “Improving energy performance in existing buildings: An international review of trends in energy codes and performance standards”.

The webinar will focus on the energy-saving opportunities in exisiting buildings, and how the policy mechanisms to regularly check and improve a building’s energy performance can unlock this potential.

Managing Director of Sustainable Energy Partnerships, Adam Hinge, will present the findings from a report he authored that examined two major types of policies: building energy codes and mandatory performance standards. The report was commissioned by the Australian Department for Industry, Science, Energy and Resources as part of its contribution to the International Energy Agency’s Building Energy Codes Working Group.

The presentation will be followed by a panel session, which includes the speakers:

  • David Nemtzow, Building Technologies Office Director of the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), US Department of Energy
  • Louise Sunderland, Senior Advisor, Regulatory Assistance Project
  • Liam O’Brien, Associate Professor in Civil and Environmental Engineering, Carleton University
  • Alison Scotland, Interim Executive Director, Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council.
