On 22 March 2021 a meeting organized together with the General Office of Building Control was held via the Cisco Webex Meetings online platform. It was an opportunity to get informed about the current state of works on the Central Emission Efficiency Record for Buildings (CEEB) system and to obtain answers to questions. The conference was attended by over 200 participants.
What did we learn?
During the conference the General Office of Building Control presented and discussed several topics:
1. The purpose of creating CEEB,
2. The advanced status of work on system reliability,
3. the final draft of the future central register,
4. the Authority in the process of making the declaration to CEEB and deadlines for submission of declarations.
During the discussion part, the participants were willing to ask questions concerning the principles of the system operation and to present their doubts. The topics discussed included the introduction of heat produced by using renewable energy sources, lack of submissions of declarations by citizens, real estates with unregulated legal status and planned nationwide educational campaigns.
Benefits for communities and their citizens
The planned implementation of the system, which is CEEB, will be very beneficial for the communities and citizens. The system will make it possible to collect data on the energy status of buildings, information on forms of public support (subsidies, preferential loans) granted for thermomodernization or replacement of boilers in buildings. All shared activities in this area will bring us closer to improving air quality.
