CoBE (Cobenefits of the Built Environment) is a tool to determine the health and climate benefits related to reductions in energy use. The methodology is to reduce a building's energy consumption reduces amount of energy produced by power plants, resulting in fewer emissions of pollutants that contribute to climate change and cause premature mortality, hospitalization, and lost school or work d

This report is about mobilizing building code regulations for risk reduction.  In the past 20 years, natural disasters have affected 4.4 billion people, claimed 1.3 million lives, and caused $2 trillion in economic losses.

Cities are increasingly taking actions such as building code enforcement, urban planning, and public transit expansion to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide in their communities and municipal operations. However, many cities lack the quantitative information needed to estimate policy impacts and prioritize city actions in terms of carbon abatement potential and cost effectiveness.

The buildings sector is responsible for approximately 23% of Australia’s carbon emissions. The Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council (ASBEC), the peak body for sustainability in the built environment, has identified that improving the minimum standards for energy efficiency of new buildings can assist in delivering carbon emissions reductions.

In this report, we evaluate policies to reduce GHG emissions in urban areas according to multiple criteria, based on an extensive literature review. Municipal governments implement policies (regulations, charges, subsidies, etc.) to induce actions (such as improved energy efficiency in buildings or a shift to public transit).

Speakers: Chris Benedict, Gina Bocra - LEED AP, Priscilla RichardsThe Energy Code is an increasingly robust tool for improving energy efficiency in our buildings. This session will examine how far the existing code has come and identify the remaining barriers and limits. Speakers will compare and contrast the existing energy code...

Since 2010, New Buildings Institute has tracked the developing market for zero energy buildings. We are pleased to share this latest 2018 Getting to Zero Status Update and Zero Energy Buildings List, which summarizes the growth and trends from nearly 500 certified, verified and emerging zero energy projects across the United States and Canada.

Research report
17 May 2018

The presentation guide policymakers on the fundamentals of how to evaluate both energy and non-energy benefits (the multiple benefits) of energy efficiency for buildings. Previous case studies that have been completed were compared to evaluate the monetised value of energy efficiency measures using numerous categories for multiple benefits.
Trainers: Brian Dean and John Dulac
