Presents some important contents in the Document, such as the calculating formula of heat transfer coefficient U-value of glass curtain walls and simple payback calculation. By comparing and analysing the differences between the Document and China＇s national standard, Design standard for energy efficiency of public buildings, in terms of limiting values of prescriptive indices, such as area ratio of window to wall and heat transfer coefficient of building envelope, finds that the limiting values in the Document are stricter. Considers that the methods and/or notions used in the Document, such as choosing trade-off options by COz emissions, implementing energy efficient projects through self-certification systems, and assisting architecture design with several energy efficiency options, can provide reference for improving building energy efficiency in China.
