Buildings are key to low-carbon development everywhere, and many countries have introduced building energy codes to improve energy efficiency in buildings. Yet, building energy codes can only deliver results when the codes are implemented. For this reason, studies of building energy codes need to consider implementation of building energy codes in a consistent and comprehensive way.
This presentation shows a brief overview of some of the principles and practices and stakeholder engagement related to building energy codes. It also includes a brief example of the Australian government that has engaged in code assessment. There's a commitment to continually engage with stakeholders, both through the development and revision process, technical committees, working groups, and the stakeholder surveys that they've done recently to understand implementation.
