The National Development and Reform Commission of China (NDRC) guided the China Quality Certification Center (CQC) to develop a China TOP TENs Best Energy Efficient Practices list to highlight energy savings practices for the China’s buildings sector. The list covers a broad range of building practices including commercial and residential. Each practices have been weighted using a structured methodology to determine its energy saving and cost achievement, sustainability, originality and innovation, replicability, as well as co-benefits.
Energy consumers, program administrators, developers, designers, and policy makers can use this list to consider the benefits of these practices, while producers of these practitioners can use this list and underlying research to promote their cases in the globally. China will partner with other countries that also investigated industry practices, including Japan. Getting exposure to the Chinese audiences, for example, can be beneficial for Chinese producers to implement the practices in general, as China is one of the largest industrial markets in the world.
