Although energy conservation work concerning building in our country has made remarkable progress, there still exist problems such as extensive urban and rural construction, high consumption of energy and resources, low efficiency, emphasizing appearance over quality, underlining construction rather than management and other prominent problems. For this reason, the National Development and Reform Commission(NDRC) and the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development compiled the Green Buildings Action Plan which requires various regions of China to strengthen maintenance management of constructions, to study and improve relevant management systems on demolishment of buildings, to practice review system for abandonment and demolishment of buildings and punish unauthorized demolishment pursuant to the law.


The objectives of the Plan mainly comprise constructing new buildings and reconstructing existing buildings. It plans to implement mandatory energy-conservation standard for new buildings in cities and towns during the 12th Five-Year Plan, with the construction area of green buildings being 1 billion square meters and among those newly-built buildings, the proportion of green buildings being 20% in 2015.


China also plans to reconstruct existing buildings for the purpose of energy conservation during the 12th Five-Year Plan, including heat metering and energy efficiency renovations of more than 400 million square meters of existing residential buildings in North China, energy conservation reconstruction of more than 50 million square meters of existing residential buildings in regions with hot summers and cold winters, energy conservation reconstruction of more than 120 million square meters of existing public buildings and office buildings of public institutions and construction of 400,000 model energy-saving buildings in combination with renovation of dilapidated buildings in rural areas. By 2020, reconstruction of existing residential buildings in North China that require energy efficiency renovation will be basically accomplished.
