Energy Efficiency Building Codes and Green Pyramid Rating System

Dr. George Bassili Hanna

Abstract: Three Building Energy Codes were introduced in Egypt between 2005 and 2010. They impose mandatory energy performance requirements for residential, commercial and Governmental buildings. Another Code was presented (2013) to improve the indoor air quality and ventilation requirements and system. This paper addresses the current states and the potential of Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy and Green Buildings to reduce the depends of the fossil fuel. These codes were the base line for Green Building Code. The first edition of the Green Pyramid Rating System was published in December 2010. The green Pyramid Rating System is a national environmental rating system for buildings. It provides definitive criteria by which the environmental credentials of buildings can be evaluated, and the building themselves can be rated. The Egyptian Government has an interest in promoting green buildings as part Egyptian policy overall sustainable development policies. HBRC establish the Egyptian Green Building Council (GBC-Egypt) at the beginning of 2009. Another Code (under preparations) for Green Hotel Rating System in Egypt to improve the Egyptian Touristic sector. The essence of this paper is to introduce the Egyptian Efforts to improve the quality of life and highlight the barriers and to over come the changeless that faces Egypt and are summarized only in three main parameters namely, energy, water and housing.
