Slide presentation covering the fundamentals of how energy efficiency targets and policies can be used in tandem to reduce energy use in buildings and meet energy and development goals. The slides provided guidelines to policymakers to identify, prioritise and quantify different policy options.Trainers: Brian Dean and John Dulac
Rapid global urbanization and the increase of the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect make urban cooling a necessity as well as an opportunity to increase the liveability and amenity of cities. This review is a scoping study of the relevant worldwide UHI mitigation/adaptation...Read more
A rapid review on green-rated office buildings, and their operational energy use, found that the conclusions of six studies ranged from the certified buildings performing worse, similarly or much better than the non-certified buildings in terms of energy usage intensity. Two...Read more
In response to feedback, high-income households can reduce their energy use to a larger degree than low-income households (17% vs 3% reduction). This and other insights were gained by two rapid reviews into research, both Australian and International, on digital services and...Read more
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.

This presentation provides a guideline to policymakers on
1. How to test the claims that the building energy codes were outdated from the industry association.
2. What to do if the claims and information are correct.
Without strong and ambitious policy support, the energy efficiency potential of cities is likely to remain largely untapped. Often cities have the opportunity to implement policies and programmes in the building sector that are complementary, more stringent or reflect greater ambition than national activities.
