Abstract

This report compares energy efficiency policy in buildings in China, Germany, and the United States, providing the context for, and describing, policies in these three countries in order to lay the groundwork for future review of policy effectiveness. The authors identify four opportunities for policy to impact energy use in buildings: new construction, building retrofit, equipment, and operations and analize distinct challenges and opportunities that come with it.
