Overview of stakeholders participation in adoption & implementation of building energy codes

30 Nov 2016

This presentation shows a brief overview of some of the principles and practices and stakeholder engagement related to building energy codes. It also includes a brief example of the Australian government that has engaged in code assessment. There's a commitment to continually engage with stakeholders, both through the development and revision process, technical committees, working groups, and the stakeholder surveys that they've done recently to understand implementation.

In conclusion, countries are increasingly recognizing the role of stakeholder engagement as codes get more complex, nuanced, and stringent. Stakeholder engagement can increase the feasibility of the code-adopt measures. It can also help improve the completeness of the code and ultimately the acceptance and the acceptability of the code. And as well, engaging with stakeholders can improve implementation capacity and can help in that sense in reducing the compliance cost and time.
