As part of the Philippines’ commitment to accelerate action on energy efficiency in buildings to improve air quality and reduce emissions, Pasig City has joined three other cities in the Philippines to take local action towards building energy efficiency.
BEA partners held a National Workshop with Mandaluyong, Pasig, Santa Rosa and the Science City of Muñoz, along with development partners integral to the advancement of building energy efficiency in the country. Participants visited various types of energy-efficient buildings to see how they were designed, operated and maintained. The workshop focused on the Philippine Green Building Code, its implications and the steps the national government is taking to facilitate downscaling to the local level. The workshop also featured how to conduct a basic energy survey.
