Programme for energy efficiency in buildings (PEEB)

As of: October 2021

The IEA estimates that the number of buildings worldwide will double by 2050. Buildings already account for around 30 percent of global final energy consumption; however, despite existing sources of financing, investors lack the necessary knowledge and the political framework conditions for climate-friendly construction. The PEEB is a demand-driven and needs-oriented consulting institution that combines the financial and technical knowledge of the German and French project partners. The programme supports the further development of energy efficiency policies in the building sector and the development of incentive systems to mobilise private investment. Specific projects are developed until they are ready for financing and participating stakeholders receive further training for their tasks during the various stages of the development process. The results are prepared and introduced as practical examples into the GABC and other networks. The project is part of the IKI Corona Response Package.

State of implementation/results

    GreGreen Recovery:
    • The project is developing approaches for setting up green stimulus programmes in the building sector for economic recovery from the effects of the Covid 19 pandemic within the framework of the GlobalABC.
    • Financing of €600 million for large-scale energy-efficient building projects through AFD (Agence Française de Développement) is under preparation.
    • Mobilisation of climate finance: project application for a housing NAMA in Morocco and project application for a housing NAMA in Vietnam.
    • Energy efficiency policies and NDCs, including preparation of an energy efficiency building directive in Senegal, improved directives in Morocco and Tunisia, NDC building roadmap in Vietnam.
    • International mobilisation with GlobalABC, NDC Partnership, Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL), World Green Building Council (WGBC), UNFCCC Secretariat, UNEP Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), International Finance Corporation (IFC) and International Development Finance Club (IDFC).
    • Cooperation with the private sector, including project developers and the establishment of "National Alliances for Buildings and Construction" in Morocco, Mexico and Tunisia.
