Tools for Building Energy Efficiency: Resources for Policy Development Webinar
The Clean Energy Solutions Center, in collaboration with the Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency (C2E2), the World Resource Institute (WRI) and ICLEI—partners to the Sustainable Energy for All Building Efficiency Accelerator—is hosting a no-cost, webinar-based training on publicly-available analytical tools for local governments and other stakeholders to accelerate building efficiency improvements.
The purpose of this webinar is to present tools for local policymakers to set energy use baselines in their cities and identify policy options for enhancing energy efficiency in buildings. The webinar will describe the roles tools can play along the stages of the policy development process, describe a method that cities can use to select tools that are most appropriate to their needs, and explore how tools can help in understanding the local situation on energy efficiency and identifying priority opportunity areas.
The webinar will begin with the overview of the decision tree framework developed by C2E2 and WRI for mapping tools to particular stakeholders, building types and stages of the policy development cycle. It will be followed by case studies on the application of two tools (Common Carbon Metric and TRACE) in cities and discussion of their impacts on local energy efficiency actions. At the end of the webinar, implications will be discussed for how tools can help cities accelerate their energy efficiency efforts and the support the Building Efficiency Accelerator can provide. The presentations will be followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience.
