Formulation of Building Standards for Energy Conservation in Buildings
Fisher, Douglas E. (2006) Formulation of Building Standards for Energy Conservation in Buildings. Environmental Law and Management, 18(6), pp. 282-295.
Building a sustainable environment is a major challenge for society. It places responsibilities upon private sector developers and their advisers as well as upon public sector managers and regulators. One of these responsibilities is to conserve energy – whatever its source – in the construction, operation and use of buildings. One way of doing so is through the formulation of appropriate building standards. This paper considers the nature of building standards in this context; how they may be structured; and how they may be enforced. It uses examples from England in the United Kingdom and Victoria in Australia to demonstrate how building standards may be formulated and enforced so as to achieve energy conservation in buildings.
