National Alliances for Buildings and Construction: Long-term partnerships for the energy transition

National alliances that bring together the different stakeholders along the buildings and construction value chain are a formidable means of overcoming the fragmentation in the sector, and ramping up both the level of action and ambition towards zero emission, efficient and resilient buildings and construction [...]' - Martina Otto, GlobalABC

This recently launched PEEB report shows how national alliances can help speeding up the energy transition in the building sector. It demonstrates their potential and importance in working for the transition towards low emission, resilient and efficient buildings. The report explores the experiences of five national alliances in France, Germany, Mexico, Morocco and Tunisia, and gives recommendations for establishing new ones. Its core take-aways are: 

  • National alliances are key in mobilising real estate actors towards the energy transition and have a great potential for uniting different professions through common goals. They lead to better regulatory frameworks, highly innovative industry products, voluntary commitments and capacity development.
  • National alliances are developing around the world. They can be public or private sector driven and range from volunteer-based alliances to formalised structures. Some already have an activity record of more than 10 years, while others have just been created. Some may not even have been identified yet. 
  • National alliance success factors are the development of a common vision and goal, simple and engaging organisational structures, and clear joint communication.
