Tools for Energy Efficiency in Buildings

Without strong and ambitious policy, the energy efficiency potential of cities is likely to remain largely untapped. Often cities have the opportunity to implement policies and programmes in the building sector that are complementary or even more ambitious than national activities but they need to have the right tools to do so.

This working paper aims at guiding local policy-makers, technical experts and other relevant stakeholders through the key steps of the policy and project development process.  It features publicly available tools and helping to navigate among various information sources on energy efficiency in buildings.
