According to the IEA statistics for energy balance, the residential and commercial sectors are responsible for almost 40 % of the final energy consumption in the world. The major part of this consumption is in buildings. The absolute figure is rising fast in MED-ENEC Partner Countries. The living standard of the population is improving, which translates, inter alia, into an increase in the equipment present in households, like the more widespread use of air-conditioning units. This combination, of a steady demographic growth and a rise in the average living standard, results in an increasing energy demand and CO2 emissions in the building sector. This study provides an overview of the current status of Energy Efficiency Building Code (EEBC) in the MED-ENEC Partner Countries (ME-PCs). The study is divided in two parts: the first part provides a general introduction on the background and reasoning of the implementation of EE Building Code – the second part provides an overview of the current status of EE building Codes in MED-ENEC Partner Countries. The study was carried out for: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Occupied Palestinian Territories, Tunisia and Syria.
