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.
The 14th Annual Midwest Building Energy Codes Conference brings together stakeholders from across the Midwest to discuss the advancement of energy codes and building energy policies in the region. This annual conference provides an [...]
The vast majority of buildings that we will use in the coming decades are already built and account for roughly 39% of the carbon footprint as well as other greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. We [...]
Multifamily buildings have historically been a challenging building type when it comes to energy code requirements. Whether its challenges related to envelope tightness and testing, implementing new technologies such as EV, PV, storage or [...]
Industrialized construction practices, such as off-site manufacturing, have demonstrated an ability to reduce build times, lower costs, improve quality and performance, reduce environmental impact, create safer working environments, and increase overall construction productivity. Although [...]
Recurring droughts and fires, severe weather stressing electric grids, and fluctuations in the natural gas market have communities and individuals increasingly seeking out solutions to create more resilient homes and businesses. Buildings that are [...]
With the rollout of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), opportunities to improve energy code implementation across the country are top of mind. Although $225 million is earmarked to support creative implementation efforts, [...]
Energy codes raise the proverbial energy efficiency floor while typical utility investments support programs well above code. However, this dynamic has changed considerably; creative energy code claimed savings programs have emerged as a win, [...]
