New BEET report on Energy Company Obligations today

06 Nov 2019

IPEEC’s Buildings Energy Efficiency Task Group (BEET) has just released a new report on Energy Company Obligations: Examples of delivering energy efficiency in buildings and future trends (BEET 8 report).

The publication is the eighth in series of reports issued by the task group that have covered topics including building energy performance metrics, international residential building energy efficiency rating schemes, regulatory policies for existing building energy efficiency renovations, and definitions and policy activity for zero energy buildings. The new BEET 8 focuses on the role that market-based instruments play in improving the energy efficiency of buildings and analyses energy company obligations in over 20 countries. The report also gathers city-level experiences in delivering energy savings through energy company-funded programmes while introducing future trends via technological upgrades and policy innovation. It is a valuable addition to the BEET series toolbox for policy makers, experts and other stakeholders. Engage with the report here.

An introductory webinar to BEET 8 will be held to mark the launch of the report. To register, click here.
