For many enthusiasts, the question may be how they can develop their ideas and plans in the field of energy and environment in the building and start a business related to it. The energy startup event in buildings is based on some of the key challenges in the field of construction.
Energy is one of the main causes of environmental problems. The building sector is the largest final energy consumption share (more than 35%) compared to other sectors in Iran. There are about 25 to 27 million buildings in Iran that consume more than a third of the total final energy. Given this, it can be perceived that energy efficiency in buildings is essential.
The Project of Energy Efficiency and Environment (EEEB) hosted the members of the fifth meeting of the Project Steering Committee on Tuesday, February 4th, 2019. The project, in collaboration with the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), and the Vice-Presidency for Science and Technology (VPST), began in August 2016.
One of the components of the Project of Energy efficiency and Environment in building (EEEB) is to implement energy efficiency measures in selected public buildings in Tehran as pilot. In this regard, the interim implementation of energy efficiency measures was delivered in two pilot buildings out of 22 buildings in the first batch of pilots.
