Unique EE training programme targets China’s design professionals

The World Bank estimates that by 2015, half of the world’s new building construction will take place in China.  The nation’s eleventh five-year plan (2005-2010) aims for a 50% reduction in building energy consumption, and related new policy measures include energy efficiency (EE) standards and labeling for buildings.  But there is still a strong need for capacity-building in energy efficiency-oriented design and technology for the design and construction professionals who make new development happen on the ground.
