Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions of the building sector in China
China’s economic development and rapid urbanization over the past 40 years resulted in a construction boom which has led to a series of environmental challenges. In order to achieve a greener and more sustainable development, reducing building energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions in the building sector is a top priority for the Chinese government. Recognizing the urgency, the Chinese Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development (MoHURD) requested cooperation with SDC (Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation) to promote buildings with the highest energy efficiency.
As a result, a new project was launched, in which Intep together with Skat (Swiss Resource Centre and Consultancies for Development) won the tender as the executive consultants. They will support SDC with their expertise in the field of energy efficient building design and standards, implementation of demonstration buildings, and strong work experience in technical developments within emerging countries.
The project will support China in the development of zero energy building standards and assist in their implementation through pilot projects. In addition, there will be valuable knowledge transfer and growth for Chinese professionals through the sharing of Swiss know-how.
