The National Development and Reform Commission of China (NDRC) guided the China Quality Certification Center (CQC) to develop a China TOP TENs Best Energy Efficient Practices list to highlight energy savings practices for the China’s buildings sector. The list covers a broad range of building practices including commercial and residential.

Energy is needed in industry for a number of technologies and processes, including cross- cutting technologies such as steam, motors, compressed air, pumps, heating and cooling, as well as specific processes in energy-intensive sectors (Chemicals, Iron and Steel, Cement, Pulp and Paper, Non-Ferrous Metals, and Food).

Technical report

Reliably reducing the emissions in the building sector plays a crucial role if the 1.5°C climate target from the Paris Agreement is to be met. The observed trends show a significant increase in building energy use, especially in emerging economies. Counteracting these trends is absolutely essential, especially in the light of urbanisation, population growth and changing lifestyles.

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

Renewable energy needs to be scaled up at least six times faster for the world to start to meet the goals set out in the Paris Agreement. The historic climate accord from 2015 seeks, at minimum, to limit average global temperature rise to “well below 2°C” in the present century, compared to pre-industrial levels.
