Global Buildings Performance Network to Develop New Best-practices Knowledge Centre for Municipal Policymakers

Tuesday, March 27, 2018

Municipal policymakers need to navigate, analyse and prioritise a broad range of resources available on buildings efficiency online in order to tailor solutions to their specific local circumstances. We are assisting the Global Buildings Performance Network (GBPN) to develop a best-practices knowledge centre specifically for municipal policymakers that will provide a validated evidence base of building energy policies and actions that have demonstrated results for cities. And, GBPN would like your input into shaping the centre by completing a short survey on how they can better provide evidence to support municipal actions to reduce building energy demand. All responses will remain anonymous and results shared. Thank you for your supporting our partners at GBPN.
