Event Background

To cope with the challenges brought by large-scale and rapid urbanization and to promote sustainable social development, the Chinese government has incorporated sustainable urbanization development into the 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-2020). In addition, the National New Urbanization Plan (2014-2020) further emphasizes the development strategy focusing on environmental and climate protection. To achieve the transformation goal, China must promote sustainable urban development and accelerate the pace of building energy saving development.

The construction sector is one of the fastest growing sectors in China, with energy consumption accounting for more than 30% of China's total energy consumption. This proportion is expected to continue to increase as a result of the rapid process of urbanization and the rapid improvement of people’s living standards. Therefore, more efficient implementation of building energy saving and environmental protection measures and more reasonable allocation of related resources, are the top priority in the field of building energy saving.

To achieve this goal, the Chinese government has issued the Green Building Action Plan to promote the development of innovative technologies, new building materials and related advanced implementation technologies in the Chinese market. From design and construction to building operations, every branch of the construction industry, whether residential or industrial, will benefit from it. The realization of this goal is inseparable from the knowledge and skills training for engineering practitioners and management personnel and the long-term continuous theoretical teaching and practical training for future construction talents. They need to have a full understanding and mastery of advanced construction products and materials as well as related construction technologies, in order to truly ensure the construction quality and energy saving effect of the building and realize the real building energy saving.

Policies, regulations and industry standards act as a promotion and management mechanism at another level. But how do they complement each other to promote sustainable building development? How do governments and relevant policymakers motivate the allocation of these resources? What are the challenges for implementation at the central and the local level? Will the solutions of green building technology really contribute to people's healthy and happy lives? What kind of materials and technologies are needed to realize green building and healthy building? How to solve the millennium conundrum in the field of construction in China and cultivate more high-quality and high-level talents in this field? How to better realize the implementation of foreign building energy-saving technology in China and the improvement of related technology-implementation ability? With the three bilateral Sino-German cooperation projects implemented by GIZ, all these issues will be discussed and confronted in this workshop.

At the same time, this workshop will not only introduce specific cases of the "Plus Energy Buildings" project under the current policy, which lays a foundation for the application and implementation of the concept of "Plus Energy Buildings" in specific buildings and industrial parks in China, but also the training mechanism of construction talents and related project cases under the Sino-German cooperation model in the second part of the workshop. We hope that through the Sino-German experts dialogue in this workshop and the exchange of project experiences between China and Germany, more extensive technical exchanges in the field of building energy saving can be promoted and domestic practitioners can better realize the importance of professional talents training.
