Positive energy buildings are technically and financially feasible and can be based on existing and available technology as well as proven design concepts. However, the world needs to move beyond demonstration and scale up to mainstream implementation. The vision of this session was to promote the up-take of energy positive building standards at speed and scale in new social housing building stocks in emerging and developing economies.
This PPP initiative was promoted in support of SE4All as part of the "1 Billion Square Meters" initiative from Global Buildings Performance Network (GBPN) and the Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP).
It focuses on energy positive new buildings in the emerging and developing world, to demonstrate and roll-out commercially scalable PPP models among national and local governments, real-estate developers, investors, housing associations and technology suppliers.
Session at 3GF2013
The session was arranged as a workshop including presentations on the 1 Billion SQM program and specific business models. It promoted the up-take of energy positive building standards at speed and scale in new social housing building stocks in emerging and developing economies. The session included discussions of barriers and opportunities and identification of co-benefits. Participants agreed to launch a Public Private Initiative on energy efficiency in buildings. Furthermore, it demonstrated and announced concrete public-private partnerships in pilot cities and regions around scalable business models.
