Experts from the GBPN network provide analysis and recommendations on how to improve energy efficiency in U.S. buildings. In the United States, buildings account for 41% of primary energy consumption, more than the transport or industrial sectors. Tackling rising energy consumption in U.S. buildings will require a more coordinated and coherent approach to energy efficiency codes and regulation, one that is more focused on retrofits — where most potential gains lie. It is also crucial to develop new financing mechanisms that help institutional investors assess the risks associated with energy-efficient projects.
