FENESTRATION BAU China (FBC) has a history of 16 years. It is dedicated to the integration of innovative products, technologies, solutions and exploration of business cooperation models for doors, windows and curtain walls, meanwhile to facilitate the development of industrial enterprises and technological innovation. FBC is currently the flagship expo of professional doors, windows and curtain walls system solutions in the Asia-Pacific region.

As a critical component of FBC 2019, “Sino – German Alliance – Technology Transfer and Qualification in Construction (SG TQC)” association with “Jiangsu Low Carbon Development Program”, “Sino-German Urbanization Partnership” under Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH successfully hosted the seminar “Sino-German Building Energy Efficiency Day” in the M4 conference room of Hall W3 of Shanghai New International Expo Center (Pudong) on November 5th, 2019.

At 9:30 am on the 5th, the seminar “Sino-German Building Energy Efficiency Day” was opened by Mr. Markus Delfs, Head of Cluster of Sustainable Transition of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. Mr. Delfs first welcomed the arrival of construction experts and project partners, and pointed out the opportunities and challenges faced by China and Germany in the field of building energy efficiency.

In the morning, specific cases of “Plus Energy Building” under the current policy were introduced in the seminar, laying a foundation for the application and implementation of the “Plus Energy Building” concept in specific buildings and industrial parks in China.

In the afternoon, SG TQC’ s three cooperative vocational colleges— Zhejiang College of Construction, Shanghai Urban Construction Vocational College and Suzhou Institute of Construction & Communication representatives, and Sino-German architectural excellence enterprises Representatives and experts from the German Energy Agency continued to discuss the development of the architectural talent strategy under the Sino-German cooperation model.

Prof. Wu Xiangxiang, Professional Director of School of Civil Engineering, Shanghai Urban Construction Vocational College, introduced the development of the college and international exchange & cooperation.

Ms. Qi Bei, Business Development Manager of VEKA Plastics (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. mentioned in her speech that vocational skills training are a critical element in achieving energy efficiency in buildings.
