Buildings Energy Efficiency Task Group (BEET)

Buildings Energy Efficiency Task Group (BEET)

The Buildings Energy Efficiency Task Group (BEET) is a collaborative platform for countries to research, inform and support the development and implementation of effective building energy efficiency policies, with a core focus on building rating systems and building codes. The policy choices of BEET members can have a large impact on the growing energy consumption as they represent over three-fourths of cumulative global buildings energy savings potential. Read more
