Double the improvement rate of building energy efficiency by 2030
List of participants will be added in due course
World Resources Institute (WRI)
• Identify policies, projects and methods for tracking progress for implementation by most of the 23 current city/subnational partners to the BEA.
• Implementation of actions by select city/subnational partners, notably adoption of a new building energy code and municipal building audits in Mexico City.
For 2020 and beyond:
• Demonstrating building efficiency implementation models at the local scale and then assisting in their replication and national scaling. Contribute toward the targets for SDG 7 (Affordable and clean energy) and achievement of national climate commitments (NDCs). Contribute toward doubling the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency in buildings by 2030.
Roadmap and work plan
We have a detailed work plan in the 1-2 year timeframe. In the longer term, we have a general roadmap, process and theory of change to achieve energy efficiency results to 2030.
The 23 current city/subnational partners to the BEA have made progress in prioritizing policies, projects, and methods of tracking progress for building efficiency actions. Many subnational partners have also begun engaging local stakeholders in this prioritization process.
Mexico City has adopted a new building energy code in 2016 and is undergoing audits of several municipal buildings.
We have recruited 23 city/subnational partners since the initiative launch.
Many partner municipalities have selected priority building efficiency actions and/or begun stakeholder engagement.
In Mexico City, a new building energy code has been put in place and audits of municipal buildings are underway
