With the growing frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, understanding the resilience benefits of building codes is more important than ever. By improving the energy efficiency of buildings, energy codes help enhance occupant safety comfort and reduce energy costs, use, and emissions. In addition, they contribute to individual and community resilience by improving grid reliability, and in the event of a power outage, enhancing passive survivability in buildings, thereby keeping occupants safer for longer. In this webinar, presenters will explore research findings from a recent DOE report and federal, state, and local activities related to the resilience benefits of building codes and energy efficiency.
Continuing education credits (AIA and ICC) will be offered for most of the live events. Instructions for requesting certificates of completion will be provided during each webinar.
