What you will find here

On this website you will find insights and outputs from the Accelerating 0-emission building sector ambitions in the MENA region project, known as BUILD_ME. The project supports energy efficient and renewable energy-based heating and cooling system deployment in new buildings in the MENA region.

Guidehouse manages the project and the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) provides funding.

How much energy can you save with energy efficiency measures, and how much do such measures cost?

You can find out using the free online building energy performance model developed by Guidehouse. Geared towards the MENA region, this tool allows users to calculate the overall energy performance of buildings and the cost-effectiveness of building energy efficiency measures.
