Designed for local and national stakeholders in the building sector and government, this is the first in a series of webinars addressing building energy codes and certification.

This webinar will start with a basic discussion of the types of building energy codes and how to track progress for the Building Efficiency Accelerator. The webinar will then discuss the process that is used to develop and implement successful building energy codes and certification. Online tools and databases from GBPN and IEA that are used to track implementation progress will be demonstrated. The participating stakeholders will learn about how they can report on the progress of building energy code implementation and development of building certification.
