Programme for Energy Efficiency in Buildings (PEEB) Cool

Programme for Energy Efficiency in Buildings (PEEB) Cool

The Programme for Energy Efficiency in Buildings (PEEB) Cool includes 11 countries across four continents spanning seven different climates: the Mediterranean, humid subtropical, tropical, equatorial, arid, mountain, and continental. These countries suffer from climate change with temperatures reaching levels that increase heat-related health risks.  Climate change will lead to an increase in these risks including more regular and extreme heatwaves, and an increase in mean temperatures. 

The PEEB Cool project will transform the construction sector by advancing more energy-efficient building design, construction, and operation. It will prioritise sub-sectors with significant potential for climate change adaptation and greenhouse gas reduction such as large-scale new housing schemes and commercial buildings involving both the public and private sectors. Moreover, it will generate strong economic and social benefits such as the creation of green jobs. Throughout its activities, PEEB Cool will include efficient cooling solutions, sustainable construction materials, and the involvement of construction ecosystem stakeholders.
