Implementation Methodologies

Building Audit & Reporting

Building audit reports, statistics on potential savings in domestic, commercial and public sectors

  • Identification of measures at the design, construction and maintenance stages of the building life cycle for improved energy efficiency and deployment of renewable energy
  • Identify efficient lighting and cooling equipment having significant potentials to reduce fossil fuel use
  • Specific energy saving measures and policy options for various classes of buildings are identified

Development of Workshops and Seminars

Development of training workshops, seminars on energy efficiency for building designers, contractors architects, renewable energy installers and maintenance personnel

  • Publication of manual on best practices on energy efficiency for use in building sector
  • Development of energy efficiency courses for national tertiary institutions

Reduce Fuel Operating Costs

Reduced operating costs and risk hedging against fuel price spikes are integrated into lending

  • Fiscal incentives program to increase market uptake and penetration of sustainable energy measures

National Energy Efficient Standards

Governments adopts a buildings and energy efficiency standard in their own buildings

  • Challenge competition for private sector builders for construction and retrofitting of buildings to make a very low purchased energy target of some few kWh/m2

Energy Efficient Construction Guidelines
Development of guidelines and standards for energy efficient construction practices including renewable energy and products based on investigation of global and regional standards
