The Building Efficiency Accelerator partnership aims to accelerate local and regional government implementation of building energy efficiency policies and programs.
P4G has invested US $600,000 in this partnership.
P4G elevated the profile of the partnership at the Colombia National Platform launch and accelerated the partnership to achieve tangible successes in Colombia. Two new Green Building Councils were formed in Colombia that provided energy codes to cities including Cali and Monteria. Additionally, new construction in Bogotá will adopt these codes saving 20% in water and energy. The partnership developed and shared case studies with results and best practices with all countries that have active Green Building Councils. Green Building Councils recruited 12 new cities and states to the project with a total of 23 councils in Latin America and 50 around the world committed to implementing the energy efficiency framework developed by the partnership.
