Project Summary

According to UNFCCC 2015, carbon emissions during building life cycle analysis account for 30% of global carbon emissions and this proportion will be up to 50% if the building energy consumption continues at current speed. This also increases risks and vulnerability of economies, regions and local communities to climate change impact. Rapid urbanization, especially in emerging economies is only going to accelerate this impact.

The promotion of Nearly (Net) Zero Energy Building (NZEB) has been proven to be the most effective measure of reducing energy consumption in building sector. The studies and experiences that have been shared during the previous projects received enthusiastic responses amongst APEC economies: NZEB policy, definition, R&D programs in “EWG-03-2013A” and best practices in “EWG-02-2015A”. More than 300 participants from 17 APEC economies attended the 4 workshops from 2013 to 2016 on this topic.

The objective of this program is to strengthen the energy reduction goals between UN and APEC 2035 energy intensity target for the building sector, harmonize the Nearly/Net Zero Energy Roadmap within the APEC region, find a flexible, approach to reducing building energy consumption through readily accessible methods to achieve NZEB in all climatic zones, prioritize a list of policy and technology recommendations for APEC economies to promote NZEB in the future.

As an important supplement to trading regimes, this project will contribute to enhanced economic cooperation on building materials and building energy systems, equipment and appliances, thus promoting regional economic integration, leading to the fourth statement on Peru’s Priorities. Within the program, APEC NZEB roadmap workshops is planned to be held in Hawaii, 2017.

Relevance

The APEC Nearly (Net) Zero Energy Building Roadmap Study responding to COP21 project responds to the 25th APEC Ministers Meeting and 21st APEC Economic Leaders’ Declaration, to reduce APEC’s aggregate energy intensity by 45 percent by 2035, using 2005 as a base year, and promote clean, renewable and sustainable use of energy within APEC region. Meanwhile, this project will establish the connection between APEC Economic Leader’s Declarations with the COP 21 carbon emission reduction target. As the consequent, the promoting regional economic integration will lead to the fourth statement on Peru’s Priorities.

Building energy consumption takes 30% to 40% of total primary energy in APEC economies and has a fast increasing trend in developing economies due to the urbanization rate increase and living standard improvements. The wide range promotion of NZEB and mass energy saving consciousness is the critical point to make NZEB achieve its real impact - clean, sustainable, low carbon emission goals in the building sector.

A harmonized development of NZEB promotion is critical to realize regional goals of carbon emission reductions in the building sector and thus to response to the APEC target. Currently, APEC economics such as USA, Canada, Korea, and Japan have already published their mid-term and long-term goals and roadmaps to achieve these goals. As the continuation of the project “EWG-03-2013A: Nearly (Net) Zero Energy Building”, and project “EWG-02-2015A: Nearly (Net) Zero Energy Building Best Practices and Energy Reduction Comparative Study” the distinction from the previous projects is that this new project will integrate existing studies and experiences, carry out professional in depth comparative research on [1] What is the relationship of energy reduction goals between UN and APEC 2035 energy intensity target on the building sector? How many goals have already existed in APEC economies and how to harmonize them according to each economies’ different background and approach on this theme? Is there any space to improve the APEC building energy intensity target under current developing trend of NZEB?  [2] What is the most accessible and efficiency policy to promote NZEB in APEC region according to the existing experiences, including but not limited to mid and long term goal, building codes upgrading , NZEB certification, building retrofit. [3] What is the technology methodology to achieve NZEB in different APEC climate region?  This study will provide all APEC member economies’ reference in time.

According to the Funding Criteria for All APEC-Funded Projects in 2014, this project is related to the Investment, Services, Standards, conformity assessment, technical regulations and regulatory cooperation of Rank 1, and Promotion of Renewable Energy, Energy efficiency and Low Carbon technology of Rank 2, through collect latest NZEB experiences and share among APEC region.

Objectives

1] To clarify and strengthen the relationship of energy reduction goals between UN and APEC 2035 energy intensity target on building sector, harmonize the Nearly/Net Zero Energy Roadmap within the APEC region. Provide revising recommendations by carrying out comparative technical obstacle analysis on NZEB promotion under various influence factors.

2] Host a workshop wherein experts and related stakeholders from APEC member economies will be invited to discuss the challenges and obstacles during NZEB roadmap development under these factors and developing a solutions based approach for critical scenarios.

3] Strengthen the NZEB project framework that established during the former projects. This project will integrate the research progress that have achieved in the past four years and this will be the strong support to NZEB medium to long-term development plan.

4] Prepare a report < APEC Nearly (Net) Zero Energy Building Roadmap>, as a recommendation of NZEB development and marketization in APEC. The medium to Long-term NZEB roadmap is aimed to serve APEC building energy efficiency promoting and the NZEB Policy Priority List will be a strong support to APEC developing economies’ capacity building in decreasing building energy consumption.

Alignment

To reduce APEC’s aggregate energy intensity and promote clean, renewable and sustainable use of energy within APEC region is the common goal of different APEC member economies and addressed by 21st APEC Economic Leaders’ Declaration and 2014 APEC Energy Ministers Meeting. The outcome of the project will provide APEC economies a priority list of tasks on NZEB promotion, which can be taken as the regional NZEB promoting suggestions for APEC’s 45 per cent energy saving target.

This project is also well aligned to the Peru Priorities for 2016, on updating traditional manufacturing, investing in human capital development, and encouraging regional economic cooperation.

The APEC-EWG Strategic Plan for 2014 – 2018 facilitates the exchange of best low carbon policies, practices and tools among APEC Member Economies and strengthen the reliability, adaptability and interoperability of electric grids in the APEC region to promote the development of sustainable communities across the region and to achieve progress towards the goal of reducing APEC’s aggregate energy intensity by 45 per-cent from 2005 levels by 2035.

TILF/ASF Justification

Considering the 21 APEC member economies, building energy demand for different area varied intensely. A key element of this project is based on capacity building in the area of integrating and analysing global building energy reduction goal and proposing accessible applications of NZEB among member economies. Meanwhile, this would also be a promotion of the capacity building in APEC developing economies. The project will include but not limited to:

1) A Comprehensive comparison on energy reduction goals between UN and APEC 2035 energy intensity target on building sector can help APEC developing economies putting more effort on promoting building energy efficiency.

2)  A detailed and latest information collection on NZEB Policy Priority List which includes NZEB developing target, government policies, promoting programs, industrial certifications, and relative codes and standards can show APEC developing economies the experience to reduce their building energy demand.

3)  A deep analysis on NZEB technology priority list which includes passive and active approaches, renewable energy systems, and automatic control system will be an useful guidance on NZEB design and construction in APEC developing economies.

The proposed project will assist APEC developing economies in keeping track with international developments in terms of 1) Existing NZEB policies and development target, and 2) Policy Priority List and Technology Priority List  can show the clear evolutionary process of building energy saving goals and upgrading technologies. This project will therefore significantly contribute to the elevation of capacity of APEC developing economies up to international levels.

Beneficiaries and Outputs

Outputs: This project is designed to be an influential program with fruitful outcomes:

Output 1: The APEC NZEB Medium to Long-term goal. The comprehensive analysis on the building energy reduction goals between UN and APEC 2035 energy intensity target will be taken as the basis and a medium to long-term goal will be proposed to support NZEB development throughout APEC regions.

Output 2: The APEC NZEB Policy Priority List. The collection of detailed and latest information on NZEB policies, promoting programs, best practices, and technical roadmaps will finally form the APEC NZEB Policy Priority List, which will also disseminated on the workshop that will be held during the program. The gender balance in building energy efficiency will be included in the policy list.

Output 3: The APEC NZEB Technology Priority List. By integrating the existed progress among APEC economies, this program will harmonize the Nearly/Net Zero Energy Roadmap within the APEC region, provide accessible methods and target to achieve NZEB in all climatic zones, prioritize a list of recommendations for APEC economies to fast track the goal of NZEB. This plan will be proposed as a recommendation APEC next energy demand reduction target.

Output 4: One workshop. The Workshop will focus on NZEB roadmap study responding to COP21: Best Practices and R&D Needs. The workshop will be held in October 2017, 18 experts and 17 economy delegates are expected to attend this workshop. Feedback from representatives of the workshop, as well as the suggestion and comments from member economies and EGEEC members will be collected and put into the project summary report. Altogether, 40 participants are expected.

Output 5: Final report - APEC Nearly (Net) Zero Energy Building Roadmap.

Outcomes:

1] All the information involved in this project is based upon the latest updating information, and the NZEB medium to Long-term development goal that proposed in this project will provide a high value of experience during APEC EWG further policy making. The NZEB development goal would also act as a strong recommendation and support to APEC higher level decision making.

2] From the APEC NZEB Policy Priority List and Technology Priority List, clear comparison of NZEB developing goals, latest upgrading building codes and standards, current active certifications and the roadmap of NZEB best practices will be a good recommendation to governors and relevant stakeholders on building codes, standards and certifications establishing and upgrading. For those NZEB-owned APEC economies, the final report will provide a comprehensive further step suggestions; for those non-NZEB APEC economies, it will act as guidance and professional support to help explore the best fit approaches to realize NZEB. Thus the industrial upgrading and marketization on NZEB will be a specific and final target on both developed and developing economies. A field trip (technical tour) during the workshop to the local Nearly/net Zero Energy Building best practices and research institutes will assist the economies, especially in the tropical area ones to understand the technologies of NZEB more deeply and will help for future policy design in each economy.

3] As an important supplement to trading regimes, this project will contribute to enhancing economic cooperation on environment protecting, energy saving, construction industry, thus promoting regional economic integration, leading to the fourth statement on Peru’s Priorities. 

Beneficiaries: The direct project participants and beneficiaries include:

1) The government officials and regulators: They are the direct beneficiaries of this project since the responsibility of policy and regulation in building construction and energy efficiency. They will receive a more detailed account of NZEB developing condition throughout the APEC region and thus be in a better position to efficiently contribute to the future harmonization of their respective policies towards NZEB. E.g. Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development of China, Department of Energy of USA, Natural Resource Canada, Korea Energy Management Corporation and Department of Environment and Energy of Australia.

2) Codes and Standards making bodies: Since the stands making process is carried out by authoritative institutions in some economies, this project will provide these beneficiaries with the opportunities to share information and learn from others’ experiences and will enable them to apply this knowledge to their own dialogue and progress future cooperation and capacity building activities. E.g. China Academy of Building Research, Korea Institute of Construction Technology, Society of Heating, Air-Conditioning and Sanitary Engineers, and Green Building Council Australia.

3) Researchers and experts: They will get great opportunities to communicate with outstanding researchers who are at the frontier of research in building technology academic fields. They are the most direct beneficiaries and changing propellers. E.g. Tsinghua University of China, Nagoya University of Japan, Lawrence Berkeley Lab of USA, RMIT of Australia.

4) The NZEB project developers and investors: Will get latest technology, financing and commercial information from The APEC Nearly (Net) Zero Energy Building Roadmap report, to show them the inevitable trend of NZEB development.

5)  Manufacturers of construction industry: They will understand and grasp the developing direction of the building construction industry trends. Some developing economies within the APEC community are relatively new to NZEB technologies and bring some different perspectives to the target and routes that the regulators has set, then they will be also the beneficiaries of this project to have a further participation and comprehension.

Dissemination

1]  1 workshop, will be held and more than 40 persons all over the APEC regions will be expected to attend it. The workshop is designed to cover a wide scope of the target audience, from governmental officials, standards makers, to energy efficiency experts, real estate business and other industrial stakeholders.

2]  Final report “APEC Nearly (Net) Zero Energy Building Roadmap” will target current building energy saving codes, standard, policies, programs and latest building technologies along with their adaptions in various climate regions. The final report can be regarded as a NZEB manual guidebook and a limited (~200) of hard copies will be printed and disseminated to all officers and experts interested in NZEB construction. The final report will be open downloaded in the APEC Publication Database (PubDB).

3]  International workshops and forums. The project overseer will also introduce the outcome of this program in other international fora like IEA, IRENA and so on. E.g. 10th International Symposium on Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning – ISHVAC 2017.

4]  Leaflet printing. A 2-page summary of the APEC Nearly (Net) Zero Energy Building Roadmap Study responding to COP21 Project introduction will be printed and disseminated during and after the project to call more people’s attention on NZEB development at the future APEC-EWG-EGEEC meetings. Before printing, the leaflet will be sent to the Secretariat for review and will be disseminated in both e version and printed version.

5] Close contact with EGEE&C members. This project will keep close contact with EWG official members and deliver the latest progress to EGEE&C members in time. The APEC NZEB working group believes that this project will be a strong suggestion on how to improve building energy efficiency throughout the APEC region.

Gender

Women and men have different kinds of knowledge and experience of energy efficiency, either through their traditional roles (providing for household needs) or increasingly as professionals in the energy sector. Changes related to Energy efficiency in building design is an issue that affects both men and women, but in potentially in different ways and to a different degree. Thus the issue of energy efficiency while seemingly very technical and incompatible with gender issues, is in fact not gender-neutral.

Women’s as well as men’s experiences, vulnerabilities, needs and perspectives (= gender analysis) need to be examined in energy related interventions, in order to understand different impacts and where necessary to develop targeted activities that are effective, efficient, and ensure equal value to all beneficiaries, especially disadvantaged population.

The project will  take following steps to ensure the participation and engagement of both men and women:

1) To further ensure that no gender is disadvantaged, the PO will encourage equitable participation by men and women at all steps of the project.

2)   The PO will looking for the help from EWG PD to contact an experienced gender and building design/energy efficiency expert to support this element of the project.  Such as the Clean Energy Solutions Centre (CESC) or expertise available through IUCN/GECCO, ENERGIA or the Women in Cities initiative.

3) For the economies that will have 2 speakers or participants. The PO will require at least 1 of the participant is female. The selection of consultants, workshop presenters will be organised in an unbiased environment irrespective of gender. Project Overseer will take care to ensure that the workshop and all related administrative arrangements are executed in a gender-neutral manner, and in particular in a manner that does not disadvantage women.

Risks

1] The high-tech NZEB industry develops very fast in APEC region during the recent years. Different government will adopt various means to push the building energy efficiency promoting. It will be very challenging to collect all the policies and programs information. And it is also a challenge to figure out what is the latest updating information.

The project overseer will keep close contact with the authoritative research institutes among the tracking economies and meanwhile collect wide professional information through international conference, workshop, standard organization meeting, etc, to keep up with the latest development.

2] There is generally a risk that workshops do not attract the optimal range and number of participants. However, the project overseer already has long-term history of cooperation with the key organizations to be involved. That will help using all partners’ networks to convince the participants to join.

The information of this workshop had been disseminated during the 47th EGEE&C meeting and 2016 APEC Peru meeting, the project overseer will keep broadcasting the information on 48th EGEE&C meeting and together with other meetings. This risk can further be managed by using a range of communication channels to promote the workshop; holding it alongside another relevant event, providing adequate notice of the confirmed date and venue, and assisting with travel expenses for travel-eligible economies.

3]  Delays in applying or obtaining visas. Since the workshop is prepared in Hawaii, the VISA for APEC travel-eligible economies might needs more time than expected. The program overseer will coordinate closely with participants and speakers and local organizers to ensure timely visa applications.

4]  Possible delay in finalising report and uploading documents. The project overseer will ensure sufficient time to prepare Seminar report and adhere to strict internal deadline.

Monitoring and Evaluation

1]  1 Workshop will be held during the project. 40 participants are expected. Quality and usefulness of the workshop, assessed by means of an evaluation form to be filled by the workshop participants.

2]  5 APEC economies’ NZEB promoting policies and existing policies will be collected and analyzed in the final report.

3]  A mid-term (2020) and long-term (2030) APEC NZEB Roadmap will be proposed.

4]  The APEC NZEB Policy Priority List will be set up and shared on the workshop. The APEC NZEB Technology Priority List will be set up and shared in the final report.

5]  The project overseer will ensure at least 30% of the experts and professionals that attend the research process are female.

6]  Number of publications downloads or site visits (if feasible).

Linkages

Engagement: During the project development phase, the Project Overseers will engage with and seek participation from other APEC fora with an interest of NZEB. Lots of APEC member economies and international organizations are working very hard to push forward Nearly (Net) Zero Energy Building worldwide, including New Building Institute (NBI), Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), IEA-Solar Heating & Cooling Programme, Heat Pump Programme, etc. The project overseer will keep close contact with those institutions and fora.

With regard to fora outside of APEC, the Project Overseers will reach out to European experts and IEA related implementation Agreements to raise awareness of the Seminar and to promote coordination and synergies between the respective work programmers. UN-10YFP, IEA-Solar Heating & Cooling Programme, Heat Pump Programme have programs related to NZEB, the project overseer will keep close touch with the other program and experts in this topic. The project overseer will also study the report of ESCI and LCMT under APEC carefully.

As the key issue is energy saving in buildings, NZEB has been listed as an important developing direction in US-China Clean Energy Research Center Program for both Phase I (2011-2015) and Phase II (2016-2020). The project overseer will keep working on integrating the NZEB experiences to promote its development all over APEC region.

Previous work: In Nearly (Net) Zero Energy Building Program (EWG 03/2013A),two workshops of NZEB were held in 2013 and 2014, 22 speakers and 110 participants from 17 APEC economies and 7 NGOs made great contribution to the workshops (Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, China, Hong Kong China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, The Philippines, Russia, Chinese Taipei, Thailand and USA; APERC, ICA, IFC, UNDP, World Bank and WWF). Experts and participants shared the latest information on this topic and discussed challenges and opportunities for the promotion of NZEB in the future.

In Nearly (Net) Zero Energy Building Best Practices and Energy Reduction Comparative Study (EWG 02/2015A), two workshops of NZEB were held in 2015 and 2016, 43 speakers and more than 170 participants from 21 APEC economies participated in the workshops (Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, China, Hong Kong China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, The Philippines, Russia, Chinese Taipei, Thailand and USA; APERC, ICA, IFC, UNDP, World Bank and WWF). Experts and participants shared the latest information on demonstrations and discussed challenges and opportunities for the promotion of NZEB in the future.

APEC’s Comparative Advantage: The project supports a number of on-going EWG initiatives, which including LCMT and ESCI. This projects are promoting various solutions (standards and codes, policies to promote efficient technologies) and knowledge-exchange around the improvement of buildings energy efficiency in the APEC region. And will link to EWG 14  “Incubator for Enhancing Commercial Buildings Energy Performance” which mapped out the ongoing activity in the sector and the current gaps and barriers to unlock energy efficiency in COMMERCIAL buildings. PO had already contacted with PO of EWG 14, PO will invite each other to the activities and workshops in each program.

Sustainability

1) The project is designed to maximize the potential for sustainability. After the workshop is held, the work plan provides for a reasonable period of about four months for validation of the main findings and finalisation of the report. Within this period, project will continue to engage beneficiaries and stakeholders through the contact point network established by this project.

2) After project completion, the results of the project will be shared with the IEA, EU related or similar working groups to further enlarge the effect of the outcomes.

3) The project final report may be expected to serve as a reference material to developing economies’ policymakers, investors, and regional planners interested in NZEB. The content of the report is expected to be relevant in a medium term, for several years. The Project Overseer will ensure that the report is downloadable from the Internet.

4) The project overseer will keep touch with all the economies’ team for NZEB policy upgrading and best practices stakeholders by this project and keep on renew the database with self-funding.

5) The contact point network created may be utilised for interaction with stakeholders in future EWG projects. It will be available as a part of the workshop proceedings. The project team, will work out other proposals to make it sustainable after the completion of the project. This network may be useful to establish important connections to support the planning and implementation of pilot NZEB projects in developing economies.
