The Clean Energy Solutions Center, in partnership with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, hosted this webinar on stakeholder engagement in the adoption and implementation of building energy codes.
Effective development and implementation of building energy codes requires engaging stakeholders from various sectors: government, private sector, utilities, research institutions and industry associations. Stakeholders can offer feedback that can result in more feasible code provisions. Involvement of stakeholders in code development can also ensure broader acceptance and better compliance. The webinar featured presentations on experiences with stakeholder engagement across countries that are members of the International Partnership for Energy Efficiency Cooperation (IPEEC) and of the Major Economies Forum (MEF). Presentations were followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience.
