Buildings Energy Efficiency in China, Germany and the US
This report compares energy efficiency policy in buildings in China, Germany, and the United States, providing the context for, and describing, policies in these three countries in order to lay the groundwork for future review of policy effectiveness.
As a lens for their analysis, the authors identify four opportunities for policy to impact energy use in buildings: new con- struction, building retrofit, equipment, and operations. Each of these categories presents distinct challenges and opportunities and are targeted by energy efficiency policies in all three countries. Read the full report here.
