Decarbonization Policy Framework: Building Policies
June 18, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am PDT
Decarbonizing our building stock requires a comprehensive set of actions, occurring in parallel and phased in over time, across different sectors and levels of government. NEEP’s Building Decarbonization Public Policy Framework lays out the pathway. A successful transition to zero carbon [buildings] will require market transformation with advanced technological solutions, and equitable and fair policy mechanisms. Critical policy areas include comprehensive state and utility policy, building regulation, and alignment with evaluation, measurement, and verification (EM&V).
Buildings consume about two-thirds of the United States’ power supply and produce about 40 percent of carbon emissions nationwide. Existing buildings and buildings being constructed now will have a considerable impact on our region’s energy use 50 to 100 years from now. Therefore, the built environment, including residential, commercial, and public structures, presents an opportunity to drastically reduce carbon emissions. During this webinar we will learn from best practices in building codes, benchmarking and building standards, and residential labeling.
