Building Energy Efficiency Regulations in China: Policies and Trends

March 23 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Speaker: Barbara Finamore, Senior Attorney and Asia Director, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)

Abstract: Energy used in buildings is responsible for 30% of China’s CO2 emissions, a percentage that is expected to grow as China continues to urbanize and transition to a service economy. China has developed a variety of policy tools designed to reduce building energy consumption and waste, including building energy codes, policies and programs to promote the green building sector, and targets and incentives to expand energy efficiency retrofits for existing buildings. This presentation will outline some of China’s key policies and initiatives to improve building energy efficiency, discusses several outstanding challenges and conclude with an overview of latest developments.

Co-sponsored by the China Project, Harvard Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and the Harvard Center for Green Buildings and Cities, Harvard Graduate School of Design
