EUEA logo text ENG23 March, 2015, workshop on Energy Efficiency in Buildings and Advanced District Heating took part in Intercontinental Hotel, Kyiv.

Elena Rybak, EUEA Vice-Chairman moderated “Energy Demand in Ukraine and Building Sector Impact” panel.

The buildings sector is the largest energy-consuming sector, accounting for over one-third of final energy consumption globally. Building-specific and product-specific policies, in conjunction with broader systems-level policies, will be essential to achieving large energy savings and emissions reduction. Policy makers are encouraged to place a high priority on implementing building codes and accelerating the rate of renovation with deep efficiency improvements.

Workshop and seminar are part of IEA programme to help reduce energy intensity.
