  8. 8. Key findings Training, raising awareness and building capacity are needed in both IEA and non-IEA countries Learning curves need to be considered at early stages of policy design DON’T COPY PASTE: Methodologies are global but buildings are local Human and financial resources are needed to support governmental agencies Design policy packages that go from urban policies to S&L for appliances Regional and international collaboration are required © OECD/IEA 2011
