CIB Publication - The Implementation of Energy Efficient Buildings Policies: an International Comparison

This Final Report of CIB Commission TG66 - Energy and the Built Environment is published in the CIB website and can be downloaded for free. It provides a practical comparison of energy policies in different countries. The Author is Jean Carassus, Coordinator of TG66.

Since more than a decade and in particular given the increased concerns about climate change, the interest in energy and the built environment has substantially increased. Moreover, it has become a worldwide concern. Two typical features for energy issues in the built environment are:

  • The very important role of the individual citizen in taking the appropriate actions AND
  • The crucial roles of government in setting the scene, typically through legislative measures and/or stimuli.


The fact that these are worldwide challenges makes it a particular interesting topic for collaboration in the CIB context and it led to the creation of CIB Task Group TG 66 on Energy and the Built Environment. This Task Group, very dynamically lead by Prof. Jean Carassus, who was mandated by CSTB, and with experts from more than twenty countries, has introduced in the context of CIB a new communication approach, whereby the organisation of four internet seminars was crucial and allowed to have a wide outreach. These webinars can still be watched on http://cib.sympraxis.eu/about.

With this Task Group coming to an end of its activities, this final report gives a structured overview and synthesis of the information gathered throughout the project.

The outcome of this task group clearly highlights that the energy challenges in buildings are an issue of concern in all countries involved in this study, but that the roadmaps and actions in the different continents vary widely. Therefore, further international collaboration in the context of CIB or in other networks is therefore surely needed.
